Top 3 Fashion Color Combinations for Spring 2013

spring 2013 fashion color combinationsWant to instantly freshen your wardrobe for spring? Add instant chic to your everyday look with the top 3 fashion color combinations seen on the spring 2013 fashion runways.

1. Navy and Hot Pink

This is my favorite new fashion color combination this spring. It's effortlessly chic for work and super playful for casual wear too. For the office, try pairing a navy sheath dress with a hot-pink accessory. Go for a clutch or enamel bracelet if your workplace is conservative, or step it up with hot-pink heels in a more casual office. When you're out and about on the weekend, color block these two hues for an outfit that pops. For the daring, a blousy navy top looks amazing tucked into pink shorts or a slim skirt. Anchor your look with neutral flats.

2. Green and Beige

The color experts at Pantone named emerald green the color of the year for 2013, so you're going to see tons of it this spring. Sure, you could throw on a simple emerald green dress to participate in this trend. But this cheery color looks even better when paired with neutral beige. An emerald tunic with simple beige pants could be your new go-to brunch look. At the office, switch the brighter color to the bottom for a more appropriate look. Try matching an emerald green pencil skirt with a silky ecru-colored blouse. Or chic up your look by adding a pop of green with accessories, such as a green scarf or emerald green heels worn with a linen sheath.

3. Yellow and Dusky Blue

Citrus hues will be hot in fashion this spring and summer. Teens and twenty-somethings can get away with the bright yellow jeans you'll see in stores. But for the rest of us, a more grown-up take on citrus blends yellow with dusky blue. For work, pull off this spring fashion color combination by pairing a pale yellow shell with soft blue trousers. Layer on a wooden necklace and navy blazer for a presentation-ready look. On casual days, try a bright yellow tunic over well-fitting, faded jeans, or tuck a silky yellow blouse into a soft blue A-line skirt. Add bright turquoise jewelry or a belt in cobalt blue to finish your stylish day-off look.
