Fresh New Color combinations to try

Combining colors is a science and we have talked about it earlier. If you are not a pro at making color combinations in your wardrobe, maybe you should get hold of the basics of color combination from an earlier post. But today, we want to share some fresh color combinations, that are follow he basic rules but look artistic nonetheless. 

While exploring polyvore do you follow us there? we often come across boards that make us stop and notice. So these are some of those exquisite boards hand-picked by Wink n Pout stylists to inspire some new color combinations in your wardrobe. There are obvious trends in all the three categories – Bold contrasts, Brights and ‘Safe and Neutral’.

Bold Contrasts
These combinations combine colors that sit almost opposite to each other on the color wheel. But it is definitely varying degree of “bold” in each one. You can combine:
