At Christmas time, what colors come to mind? Red and green, right? But there are other holiday colors as well. What if true red and true green are not colors that look best on you? Age doesn’t matter. What matters is what you love and what looks best on you. Think of the beautiful, artistically decorated Christmas trees and lights…blue and white, silver and gold, etc. Maybe some other set of colors is more you. Let’s take a look at holiday color combinations to wear besides the usual red and green…
Any shade of red and any shade of green
Your reds can range from pinks to deep burgundy and from mint to forest green. Include blue greens, wine, marsala, coral red, etc. For instance, you might try army green with burgundy:
And here’s an example of blue-green with red:
Nude, Pale, Golden and Silvery Colors
Nude-color clothes are good for evening events and can be combined with black or Christmas accent colors, such as red. Pale-color clothes are feminine, delicate, and subtle, which make them glamorous and sensual rather than all-out sexy for evening. Use any pale color for your outfit and add crystals, pearls, and/or other pale jewels. If you’d rather use metallic jewelry to go with your pale outfits for special events, choose fine, delicate pieces. Silver and gold are definitely the colors of Christmas and its gifts. They shine, so taking a cue from that, you can really wear almost any colors and just add sparkle, silver and/or gold!
