“Unappetizing” Color Combinations That Are Actually Awesome

We’d credit Shrimps 80% responsible for the recent faux-fur frenzy that’s affected the wardrobes of all your friends. Blame it on the London label's name, but we can't help associating the colors in its collections with food items, too. But, in so-wrong-but-so-right color pairings like banana-yellow and peeled-shrimp pink or dishwater-grey and Grapeade-purple, the brand has proven that your least favorite colors can actually look amazing in the right combinations. You may not want to eat them together, but you'll sure want to wear them. Their recent fall ’15 collection is filled with food-hues we'd never given a second thought…until now, of course.
That ability to turn weird into wow is part of Shrimps’ genius, and you can bet we’re silently shaming ourselves for passing up that lettuce-green sweater at the thrift shop (because we never knew how magical it might look over our Smarties-blue slip dress!).
