The Best Color CombinationsAlthough getting the right color combinations is no easy task, having the right color combination skills is a necessity in today’s world. As a basic rule of thumb, the basic color combinations should serve as the base for your vintage style wardrobe, especially when it comes to vintage-style dresses. Successful color combinations will make you look fabulous in the eyes of others even if you are an ordinary clerk in an unknown company! Some commonly paired colors include:
Psychologists claim that this is the color of power and that it is beyond passions. Nevertheless, blue tends to be a rare color in most wardrobes. So, you should take special care when it comes to the shades of this color as well as the colors you pair with it. The combination of blue and lilac or mauve is considered the most successful combination, as well as the most pleasing blue color combination to the eye.

(vintage style top)All shades of blue make your eyes relax. Blue colors are also good for your image if you are a business lady. It may sound strange, but light blue colors may look great in combination with red, yellow, white or gray. It may also harmonize well with olive or golden hues. Heed this warning, however: the aforementioned shades of blue will hardly look great with pink, green or brown. It is well known that green has a positive influence on your mood and health, as most shades of this color may help ease your stress or put you in an optimistic frame of mind. Psychologists associate the color green with stability, whereas many people associate this color with youth. Unfortunately, many people do not get green color combinations right.

Beloved RedWe have dedicated a ton of posts to red colors and vintage-style dresses in red. Although dominating red will improve your mood, it “squeezes” the owners of red apparel more than other colors do. That’s why stylists do not recommend that you wear this color constantly. However, it is good to wear vintage-style dresses in red if you are attending an affair where you need to emphasize your personality and sexuality.

(vintage style tango dress)The inclusion of dominating wine red, pink, berry or charcoal berry in your wardrobe shows off your perfect sense of style. Combining pink with paler shadows of pink or pink with intense berry colors is not for the business lady at all. If you cannot imagine your wardrobe without pink, you won’t regret it if you purchase dresses in ash-rose colors or shades of smoky pink.
Red color goes perfectly with many other colors. It looks great with green, blue, gray, violet, golden yellow and, definitely, black. But pure red will hardly go well with terracotta, orange, brown or red-yellow shades.To be continued in part II…
