Incorporating two (or more) contrasting colors in your look was a huge trend on the 2021 runways and in the streets too. But, turning inspiration into reality isn’t always easy, especially when it comes to a styling trick that mixes pieces that might not normally go together.
To help spark some ideas, ahead, find six street style-approved color combinations to try out this spring.

Pro tip: Mixing a pastel and vivid hue into your ensemble will balance one another out. Try this theory out yourself by giving Tamu McPherson’s lilac jacket and bright yellow boots duo a spin around town.
Not afraid of bold hues? In that case, a red and hot pink color combo is calling your name. Here, Mytheresa’s Buying Director Tiffany Hsu married her bright red blazer with an equally vivid shade of neon pink in her button-up blouse and heels.
To tone down an intense neon green piece, try pairing the hue with a subtle baby blue item. To do this, take notes from influencer Maria Bernad, who layered a soft plaid blue jacket over a vibrant green turtleneck.
Odds are you’ve never thought of pairing together firetruck red and pastel purple. But, after viewing Lois Opoku’s duo here, you might think differently. Go the same route as Opoku by layering a red set over a purple turtleneck, and finish off with a furry accessory a shade lighter.
Tamara Kalinic makes a convincing case for turquoise and magenta. The influencer exhibited an easy way to try out the punchy pairing — through a lightweight jacket and cool crossbody bag.
