Color Combinations Spring 2018

Back with the damn color combinations, hahah I know some think that these articles are fun whilst other think they’re terrifying as they’re pushing the boundaries of color combinations past the comfort zone. But, that’s what I’m here for, right? With spring 2018 slowly sneaking upon us, I thought it’d be time to do a roundup of some fierce color combinations spring 2018:

Color Combinations Spring 2018

Candy Red & Shades of Purple

I honestly think this combination is perfect for this time of the year. Red, as you all know by now, has been the trendiest shade these past months and purple was declared the color of the year by Pantone. Mixing these two together makes up for the trendiest match ever (kind of) and is also a lovely injection of color for winter and spring as well. I do think that candy red is the best red to pair with other purple shades, as it’s the most energizing one and kind of light too. This helps when you pair it with darker shades of purple as in plum or a dark violet. I think it balances ultra violet too, balancing the intensity with the brightness. Candy red is also a nice match with lavender or lilac if you ask me, especially a faded lavender. The red makes the purple look more warm which is always appreciated!

Lime Green & Denim Blue

I know, I’ve talked about this combination before but I’m still crushing on it. I think lime green is a nice, energizing, pop of color for spring time and kind of trendy with the 90s street style going strong. A chic way to keep the color in balance is to pair it with denim blue.  The bright shade of denim, also the dark one for that matter, is neutral which gives the spotlight to the bright green. Black has a tendency to be too harsh of a contrast whilst denim blue is dark but bright enough to pick out the best of green. Pretty sure that the majority of us owns a piece in denim blue, which makes it an easy option too! Go for your denim jacket and the lime green as a top if you want to start easy. Or why not a pair of mom jeans with your lime green top tucked in? It’s one I’ll go for this spring!

Dusty Rose & Pale Blush

This combination is one that’s just so pure according to me, it’s sophisticated and refined. The dark and mystique shade of dusty rose often needs to be balanced with some brighter shades and white or a bright grey can often be too bold. That’s when you want to reach for a pale blush to create a smoother blend. I think this color combination spring 2018 is specifically genius to do this year as blush is a color that’s been in style for quite some time and the world is always in need of more pink, right?!


Folks! Which one of these color combinations spring 2018 will you try? Go bright and popping or more sophisticated? Let’s chat in the comments! Xx

  1. Your posts are always refreshing and can’t not to wait for Spring to try many colors combinations. I never would have thought of some of the combinations that you list in this post, in fact and being a graphic designer I feel that sometimes I do not play much with colors but it is that people do not dress so colorful in Barcelona and suddenly I focus only on neutral tones, but this is definitely an invitation to experiment 😀

    • Thank you love! Hahah I’m happy to hear that you enjoy these suggestions for color combinations! Xx

    • Dusty rose is such a pretty shade indeed! Adore the simple style, Xx

  2. Oh I can’t wait to style those colors! I really should try out the lime green with denim – actually I have to get myself something in green first 🙂 And I have been so into red lately, so I am looking forward to wear it even more 🙂
    xxx, Carmen –

    • Haha yes, that would be a first step! Love the duo though! Xx

    • I think it’s a fun one to experiment with, especially now since both the colors are so trendy! Xx

  3. I really enjoy your colour combination posts, hun! They’re always an interesting read and I like how you push the boundaries. 🙂 <3 I really love the dusty rose/pale blush combo, and it's one that I could see myself implementing into my own wardrobe. Something about that dusty rose colour in general is just so appealing to me, classy and feminine. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, hun! Hope you're having a good week. xoxo


    • I’m happy that you enjoy them! The dusty rose and pale pink is such a cute one indeed. Love it!! Xx

  4. Now, my friend, you’ve given me such inspiration here! I’ve done red and purple. I’ve done lime green and denim years ago (I need, more like want, haha, a lime green oversized sweater) but I’ve never tired a dusty rose and blush combo before! I have a few tops that are not the exact dusty rose shade, but quite similar, and never thought to combine the two, but will be doing so now! Thanks for the inspo, as always, my friend, and I hope you’re having a great day so far!



    • Oh I look forward to seeing that combination love! I know you’ll pull it off so well! Xx

  5. Ah, I love this. Red and Purple is something I would’ve done only in color blocking but I actually really like the combo since it’s not so common or expected. 🙂 I love the brighter jewel tones since they work so nicely on every skin tone!


    • That’s lovely! And so true, they are quite flattering but definitely bold to pull off! Xx

    • That sounds lovely! Looking forward to seeing some purple outfits hun! Xx

  6. Spring! I cannot waaaaait. I want to experiment with all of these combos, but we both know I will end up mostly playing with the dusty rose & pale blush. I know what I like 😉 I hope you’re having the best week, Mia! xx

    • Hahah of course! Looking forward to seeing you work it hun! Xx
