^ i think it goes well with the basics....white, grey, black...and earthy tones....browns and beiges...

if you wanted to do something more unusual, how about navy or a deep red / burgundy?..

orange would be great too..

ive always thought this guy looked great....olive / dusty pink / pale blue / brown

Olive green looks great with colors, to me anyway. Rusty red, faded teal, dusty rose, lilac, and a personal favorite, pastel pink....it lends a soft touch to cargo pants, kind of masculine/feminine or something.

Olive also looks quite lovely with gem tone purples, navy, oat, electric blues, copper/pewter mixes & gem tone yellows, I think.

Any color can match each other if you have the confidence and carry yourself well

Spike, Oh pastel Pink and Olive - lovely. !

Also I really like Pink with grey..
Like this girl, she did really well color-wise IMO


I really like this girl as well... The pairing of khaki, orange and a bit of grey is lovely.
Very Balenciaga-ish though..

I personally think that light pastel colours mixed together, especially nude & purple makes a good combi.

Yellow, cyan, and red.
Almost primary colors but not quite, the blue is lighter and brighter and the red a little darker. I love it.

Dark seafoam and rusty orange.

That's my philosophy too. I think people can pull off much more than they think they can if only they stop worrying about it and just have confidence. I think if you're wearing something you love then you'll be happy and look great and if you're in something you don't like, no matter how in style it is, you'll look like crap because you're not happy in it. People always wonder how I pull off what I wear and say they never could, but the thing is I don't worry about it.
