Deciding what colours to pair together in your outfit can be tricky. With so many potential colour combinations to choose from, where do you even start?
To help make the decision a little less overwhelming, I’ve pulled together an index of popular colour combinations that you can browse for inspiration. These are tried and tested combinations, worn successfully to the races (as you’ll see in the 71 photos below!)
Most colours can be paired together, provided they are of the right shade. For tips on choosing your own outfit colours, check out this blog post.
Base Colour #1 – Pink
Let’s start with the favourite; pink! We’ve all been enjoying the popular pink and red combo, but recently we have seen some lovely teal and pink, and maroon and pink combinations for Autumn/Winter.
What about a little pink and orange?
A new favourite we have seen popping up is pink and teal.
Base Colour #2 – Blue
Blue is always a popular colour at the races and there are so many fabulous shades of blue, from powder blue to rich navy blues.
Some fun combinations seen lately are blue and khaki, blue with red, and blue and maroon.
Totally loving blue and maroon this season!
Blue and orange also works.
Another popular combo is a monochromatic look made up of different shades of blue.
Base Colour #3 – Orange
Orange is such a fun colour to wear and perfect for Spring! I personally love to pair orange with other rich tones like navy blue and forest green.
Orange and teal is a beautiful combination to try especially if your orange is in a burnt orange shade.
Base Colour #4 – Yellow
Nothing brightens a mood like bright yellow! Yellow also looks great with blue- of all shades, from light to dark. It looks great with pink too, but my personal favourite would have to be yellow and purple!
Base Colour #5 – Red
What better way to stand out than in a red dress! A favourite combo of mine is red and blue, especially baby blue. Red also looks great with purple accents and maroon.
How great does red and maroon look together?
Base Colour #6 – Green
Green was quite popular at the track last year and has carried over to this year, so I’m sure it’ll be a big hit this Autumn/ Winter Racing Carnival. Green pairs nicely with pinks, red and blue.
