Fashion Trend Report: The New Basic is Anything But Black
by: Donna Monday
We all have it in our closets. Black – the universal color that mixes and matches with anything. Black makes us look good, while covering up figure flaws. And that’s good. Black has its place in our fashion hearts. But, now it’s time expand our wardrobe options into colorful uncharted territory.
Are you ready, ladies? Here are the new color combinations that will spice up your wardrobe and get you away from reaching for black when you may be in a mood for something a little more adventurous.
Chic Color Combo: Brown and Pink
Brown is a great alternative neutral to black. A brown pair of pants or a brown skirt with a pink top is a nice feminine look that is warm and inviting.
Chic Color Combo: Navy and Orange
Navy is traditionally paired with white or red. But let’s think outside the box a bit and go for a navy suit with an orange blouse or tank top. Wear navy shoes for a traditional look, or shoes with orange accents for a little fun.
Chic Color Combo: Burgundy and Red
For a casual look that has a wow impact, pair a burgundy top with a red sweater, jacket or hoodie. Wear with jeans.
Chic Color Combo: Charcoal and Yellow
Charcoal is a dark gray color that’s a step away from black. It goes great with cool toned colors but I bet you never thought about pairing it with yellow. Try a yellow sweater or sweater set with charcoal pants or skirt.
Chic Color Combo: Chocolate Brown and Baby Blue
Baby blue is a nice, soft blue color that looks good on most people. You can wear a baby blue top under a chocolate brown blazer or sweater. Soften that brown suit with a baby blue blouse or knit top.
