Let's face it: Sometimes the old everyday black and beige or gray and blue combos can be a whole lotta boring. With bold color-blocking continuing to be a strong trend for spring and summer, we decided to choose a few unorthodox color combos for spring that pushed the fashion envelope just enough. From Céline's gorgeous oxblood leather and cornflower blue to Marc Jacobs' sunny satiny pink and cool melon, these punchy pairings signal a new season of dress-up is here...finally!
Royal Blue and Crimson—It's time to make Independence Day, every day. Royal blue and crimson look best when worn in bright blocks of color. Try mixing them in a print, like this Thakoon dress, too.
Burnt Orange and Khaki—We loved how these nubby burnt orange pants looked with a structured camel coat. Take this look into spring with a brushed silk dress and a lightweight trench.
Orange and Fuchsia —The trick to making this look work is to choose rich materials. A silk, glossy leather, or shantung keep the combo from making you look like you shop in the Juniors' department.
Pink and Caribbean Green—If there's ever a time to mix your neons, it's now. Acid pinks and greens can be great friends, but remember to anchor it with black or another neutral.
Red Orange and Yolk Yellow‐We love primary colors with a jewel-tone twist. This red orange and yolk yellow combo just begs for small accents of royal blue and forest green, like in this Bally ad.
Oxblood and Cornflower—This pairing makes us weak at our knees! A deep, rich leather oxblood piece just begs for a lively cornflower blue.
