One look at someone’s instagram and you’d definitely know their go-to colour combinations when it comes to dressing up. We’re slowly starting to see the decline in colour when it comes to dressing up, letting hues of black and white (sometimes, grey) take over our wardrobe, simply because they’re the easiest to pair with each other. While we’re not dissing the love for all things monochrome, there are colours, if paired together flawlessly, that would knock any black n’ white combo out of its socks.
Sky blue + Yellow + White — This colour combo reminds us summer with light, airy colours with a touch of sunshine.

Crimson Red + Blue + White — Striped long-sleeved tops MAY reminds us of the french painters back in the olden days but they take our wanderlust to a whole new level; we may not be in france but we can still pretend. It also substitutes as a black n’ white ensemble but with an added zest.
Pink + Red — I know what you’re thinking. Pink & red? Never before have these two colours come together harmoniously unless they’re paired in the right shade. Match this red+pink combo with a denim jacket & sneakers for a bold yet casual ensemble.
