I'm actually surprised that we don't have a thread like this already since there are so many uncommon combinations out there that people tend to forget about, and just stick to grey and black etc..
My very first tFS thread ..I still like red mixed w. soft lilac

Shades of purple combined.

speaking of poison green/absinthe, I remember seeing a color combo in a fashionshow that knocked my shoes off.. poison green / dark cherry red and soft lavender

I love all the combinations listed !

I personally really love the idea of very very rich browns and blacks mixed! This petite girl in my philosophy class does it PERFECTLY! Do you think I should tell her ??

grey and neon yellow always works and is pretty unisex. brown and white is classic and a bit too conservative for me most of the time. turquoise goes very well with a dark red and gives you a bit of a retro look. colors rock!

It does look great though

Hanne, yeah I remembered that thread because of that color combination, it looks great.
And I really love the idea of the poison green, dark cherry and lavender
- I have a grassgreen cardi, I think I'm going to replace it with the poison green though..
now I only need something in dark cherry and lavender, hah. !

i think that the colours you are drawn to most naturally depend on the colours that suit you best...

all the things you posted are lovely hanne...
but i would have otherwise overlooked most because they are mostly too soft for my colouring or they would look garish with my dark hair and strong features...

it's funny...

:p

I've noticed that the combinatins that draw me in.. often have different textured materials.. satin, silk and velvet that bring out the depth of deep rich colors teamed with soft, matte and or muted colors in light and transparent materials such as chiffon and tulle

I think you're right.. I remember in another thread we were talking about colors.. and Asyoulikeit had a preference for the opposite colors that I did..

posting some color combos that are a bit stronger in a moment..

some of my favourite colour combinations from this season...
there is something about orange / grey and orange / white that is really appealing to me..
as well as dark red / orange..
and olive / grey / black (or white instead of grey)..
yellow / white / black is great too..

i think what i'm drawn to is mostly earthy / neutral tones with a pop of bright, almost neon colour..
so greys, browns, black, blues....and then something bright like an orange, red or yellow...
i used to hate bright colours....but worked in with more neutral tones they look beautiful to my eye now..

some examples..
