Tonal outfits always look classy, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get a bit more adventurous with colors from time to time. In fact, the summer of 2021 is all about pairing the unexpected together. Finding what works for you can take some trial and error, but luckily you can always take some inspiration from Instagram’s most iconic dressers. Have a look at some of these examples:
Red and Blue
Bright red shades can be daunting to wear. However, when contrasted by the calmness of blue, the whole look instantly becomes more balanced and grounded.
Navy and Yellow
Don’t be afraid to match a yellow top with a classic navy bag or shoes. Navy is flattering for most skin tones, and a splash of lively yellow gives it just the right contrast.
Pink and Green
This one can be tricky but bear with us. This unlikely pairing works because the contrast between green’s acidity and pink’s sweetness creates an unexpected yet cool balance.
Lilac and Red
Lilac was already super popular in 2020, so you might be happy to hear it’s here to stay. And turns out red makes for the perfect, unexpected color clash for it.
