Three Color Combinations 2018

I mean, would it even be The Fashion Folks 2018 if I didn’t talk about some, slightly, awkward color combinations 2018? Think not! That’s why I have to, obviously, start the year by a proper color combination article with three genius trios to be inspired by and try yourself. These are all kind of trendy, especially the combination of orange, green and blue – but all are fun and a great challenge for anyone who’s stepping out of the fashion comfort zone á la resolutions 2018. Here’s three color combinations 2018:

Color Combinations 2018

Orange, Green and Blue

I’ve talked about the genius match of orange and green before, but let’s step it up by adding blue to the mix. The fun thing about these exact shades of the colors trending, is that they have a nice vintage touch to them, going for the peppy 1960s vibe. This makes the trio a favorable combination when going for a modern vintage look. As shown in the picture below, green and orange works well as a base as the two of them is rather warm. The icy blue breaks it off with a nice contrast. The colors also works well separately with one another which also makes it possible to rotate the colors as you prefer. If you want to make the color combination even more wearable, remember that a light denim shade can substitute for the icy blue.

Wine Red, Pink and Purple

This trio has also been mentioned before but is too good to not be repeated. The same way that the orange and green makes up for a nice balance in the example given above, there’s a fashionable vibe of wine red and pink too. Purple breaks it off the same way ice blue contrasts orange and green, adding a colder tone. There’s a 1980s vibe with the purple trending atm, which also makes this trio relevant to embrace. If you’re uncertain about any of these shades, let them work as an accessory and the other two make up for the outfit. I know that I personally would love a pink coat with wine red pants and contrast with a fun purple statement bag! But honestly though, see which of these colors you have in your wardrobe and see how the elements can work together. If you have a purple jacket – let it lead your way!

Yellow, Camel and Orange

Perhaps this one of the color combinations 2018 is the most wearable one. And yes, I say that though it includes yellow and yellow is – eh – not everyone’s color of choice. But, camel has the weirdest neutralizating effect on both orange and yellow. The basic color makes the warmer shades look less intense and more alike camel itself. I do realize that the example below is one fierce clothing piece but I’m convinced that this trio can be done as an outfit. A mustard yellow top with a camel pleated skirt and an orange coat? Well, why not!

Folks! Which one of these color combinations 2018 would you dare to try? A yay or a nay? Let’s chat in the comments! Xx

  1. I am such a fan of awkward color combinations – if there’s no patterns involved. I feel like I mess up once prints are in the mix 😉 The wine red, pink, and purple caught my eye immediately. Agreed on the purple bag – I don’t know if I could pull off a purple coat?! Happy Monday, love!

    xx I can’t believe these are sugar free! They look so pretty xx

    • Hahah no you don’t! And I know that you look smoking in red so I’m sure that red will work too! Xx

  3. Orange, green and blue is by far my favourite mix of colours out of these, the vintage and preppy vibe they give off it wonderful and I love it! I’m even slightly jealous of the photo you’ve got to illustrate it – I want that outfit! Wine red, oink and purple is another favourite, as the colours aren’t that too different to look out of place, but also go ahead with complementing eachother perfectly. Another great post!

    • I love love love that exact color combination/clothes in that picture too. It’s so so pretty! Xx

  4. Those colour combinations are so vibrant and bold! Really gorgeous, but I always feel like I just couldn’t pull off anything too colourful. Black on black is my favourite combo. 😉 I have always liked yellow, especially mustard yellow – it’s pretty and makes me think of autumn. Out of your lovely combos, I think that the second one is my favourite and one I could actually see myself implementing into my own wardrobe. Hope you’re having a wonderful start to the new year, lovely. <3 xoxo

    • Hahah well black with black is a classic one indeed! But yes to trying more colors and be more bold in the fashion game! Xx

  5. Ha! Coincidentally, I’ve been so focused on color combinations today. Orange, green, and blue looks lovely. I’d try that. Hope you have a great weekend Mia!

    • Hahah great minds as always Amber, lol! You have to share it when you do! Xx

  6. Ooh I’m surprised at how much I love the camel/yellow/orange combo–you’re right, the camel totally balances it out. I like the pink/wine/purple mix too, I just love all those colors so why not throw them together!

    • Hahah that’s what I was thinking! But yes, the camel is magical in that combination! Xx

  7. While I’m not sure I could pull off the top two, I’m interested in trying the yellow, camel and orange colour scheme! I really need to be more adventurous with colour and wear more than 2 colours in my outfits 🙂

    Hope that this first week of 2018 is going well for you! We’ve had such a relaxing week here, really appreciated after a crazy year last year!

    • Yay! I think the combination is so fierce and I’m sure you’ll come up with something really fashionable! Xx

  8. Okay, you’re going to laugh, but totally get me when I share this because we both find inspo anywhere and I mean anywhere. So, a few hours ago, I was playing blocks with Aviah. They’re panted solid and there’s a few colors in the set, two of which are orange and green. As I’m stacking them (for her to keep knocking to the floor 😒😂) I did a head tilt thinking, hey, it’s kind of awkward and pumpkinish, but I kind of like these two together strangely enough. This confirms that I’m not too far out there when it comes to color, lol! The other two I’ll also be trying, especially the last trio, LOVE! Thanks for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you have a great weekend!
