Color Combinations

I have been trying to put together some more sophisticated color combinations. Since this is not something that comes to me naturally, I have turned to some outside resources.

Trinny and Suzannah have some interesting combos in their rules.

For my spring coloring here are some interesting suggestions:
With a dark gray wear bright emerald, dark sky, and dirty green apple.
With navy wear black, dark purple and charcoal.
With french navy wear royal blue, deep burgundy, and pale beige.
With slate blue wear sage, chocolate, and deep fuschia.
With periwinkle wear dark lavender, gray beige, french navy.
With red wear tobacco, brick and dusty pink.
With racing green wear sea green, dark purple and dirty mustard.
With dark olive wear forest green, steel blue and light orange.
With emerald wear dark lime, dark aqua, and deep purple.
With khaki wear olive, jungle green, and burgundy.
