9 Outfit Colour Combos You’ve Never Tried But Now Wish You Did

Because after looking at these genius amalgamations from the street style pack, your mind WILL be changed.
|

“New” is the buzz word that we’ve all been hearing in the last couple of days and probably will for the rest of the month. New resolutions, new goals, new perspectives, new, new, new. While all those “NEW YEAR NEW ME” posts on Instagram can get a little much, it is true that a new year brings the chance to click refresh on basically everything in your life and that includes that wardrobe slump that has been clinging on to you since the start of the chilly season. Like a wart. Like a pimple you just can’t get rid of.

The surest way to click refresh on your wardrobe is to tap into colour. It is foolproof and it challenges you to take risks. But to really turn heads? Go beyond colour and into colours. Plural. Deux.

As someone whose wardrobe was predominately black, white and grey not a year ago, I’ll be the first to admit that going double colour and above, especially when the colours are polar opposites, is tricky business. But, if the looks we’ve rounded up below prove anything, it is that bright colour on colour can still look extremely polished. Just keep the lines clean. The enduring golden rule.

So, in the spirit of the new year and all things new, forget about the colour combinations of yore. Take things further and dive into combos – complete with shoppables! – that you’ve never tried before. I know I will be.
