COLOUR COMBO: EMERALD GREEN & RED

16:33:00



There is something so sophisticated about the colour combo Emerald green and Red.  It is a chic way to inject a sense of daring and playfulness into your outfit.  Emerald green is a flattering way to add contrast and offset such a dominant colour like red but it is possible to rock both colours and NOT look like a piece of decoration!

There is just something about this palette that I love! Emerald green and Red are complementary colours, but the seem to act more like clashing colours.  Complementary colours are those colours which are “opposites” of each other on the colour wheel (think colorblocking).  Emerald green comes across as a sophisticated and somewhat preppy colour, but when paired with this bright shade of red, something really special happens. A perfect palette is born!


Emerald green and red tones are a definitely a big hit but they are also challenging to combine without looking to Christmassy.  Emerald Green and red combinations seem to get a bad rep in the fashion world, much like wearing Black and navy together, (Ever hear of the phrase “red and green should never be seen?”) well these people don't know what they are talking about, don't we see this great colour combo all the time in nature?  these two colours can in fact look very chic when worn together.  

HOW TO WEAR EMERALD GREEN AND RED TOGETHER:

If you’re wary of this combination look for pieces that already mix emerald green and red in themselves, like a plaid shirt; this helps to tie everything together more naturally. When combining these two for the chic effect. Other colours can become distracting.

If you worried about being to bold, complement a emerald green dress with red makeup and finish off your look with red accessories, this can create a chic, sophisticated and party-worthy outfit.


If you love bright colours then try colour blocking.  Emerald green pants or skirt with a red blouse really does make you stand out in a crowd. It's about breaking up the colours, playing with silhouettes, and layering in textures. It needs to look intentional, not done in error.
