Top Ten Colors That Don't Go Together

The Top Ten
Red and Purple

I never thought it would work, but I use red and purple tableware on my chestnut dining room table. I must confess I have a wall-hanging in my dining room with beiges, slate blue, gray, and, around the edges, a purple design. I started with red and charcoal for my tableware but decided to add purple and it is all gorgeous.

Red and purple is all I own. When I shop I automatically gravitate to red and purple. My head, eyes, body, hands and feet are covered in red and purple. Jenny Joseph wrote a poem about wearing these colors when she is old. I'm a lady of the 19 year old Red Hat Society and I wear these colors daily and Stand Proudly doing so.

Red and purple together is so hideous! It's like somebody vomited up blood and grape juice. The colors are beautiful on their own and match wonderfully with many others, but together look horrible. There are very few (if any) worse color combinations.

Red and Purple are royal colors and are proudly worn by the age 50+ regal ladies who are members of the Red Hat Society! Ladies-in-Waiting, age 49 and under, wear the pastel version, Pink and Lavender, while looking forward to donning the Red and Purple!

Orange and Green

I'm partially red-green colour blind, and when I see these two together my eyes start committing suicide! The two colours keep changing between looking identical and looking different. I don't know how a non colour-blind person sees these two colours, but for me personally they just don't match.

In short, the only good thing this colour combination is good for is for playing tricks on certain colour-blind people like me!

I refer to them as the "carrot colors" and I find them almost hard to even look at! Like purple and yellow, or purple and green? Or blue and orange? All disgusting in my opinion! But then again, I have a heavy opinion. Especially on colors!

Not many things go well with orange. Except for black. Black and orange remind me of Halloween but I agree I don't think those colors go well with each other.

Orange and green are summery colors, and I think they look very nice together! Lots of dresses worn in spring are made of orange and green.

Pink and Bronze

A lot would put on bronze eyeliner or eyeshadow with hot pink lipstick ( they go together)

Beautiful! Some people have no taste in colors it's so sad!

Lol pink gold peach but she is pink and bronze looking

I hate the way pink and bronze go with each other

Silver and Yellow

Think silver and yellow go great together but, in some cases you have to use subtle amount of either color.

These can go well together if it's the right kind of yellow. I think this item should be "Yellow and Gold" insyead.

They should never go together ( silver is cool, yellow/gold is hot get over it! )

I like grey and yellow. My toy wolf called Max is grey and yellow

Blue and Gold

My schools colors...they look amazing together and we had a party themed with Blue and Gold...maybe a hint of silver in there too.

Blue and gold really match together. I've worn several blue and gold clothes and they were explicit.

Stop it! My sister loves these colors so much together and my sister is the nicest person ever so stop

Blue looks better with silver because it's a cool color. With gold, it just looks ugly.

Brown and Maroon

I wore this yesterday (I'm in 12th grade) and everybody laughed at me. It was just an experiment. So you know this happened on April 14th 2017.

No way. They are too close together. What makes maroon is brown and purple. Couldn't pair those.

My brother walked out of class yesterday wearing these colors and everyone laughed at him

Its butt ugly I've seen these colors together and I wanted to puke

Purple and Yellow

I really love this combination as long as you use the right shades. I love pastel color so I think that pastel purple and pastel yellow look really great together ❤️

Many shades of purple go beautifully with many shades of yellow but not all shades of purple go with all shades of yellow - choose wisely and if you are color blind ask several friends.

Purple and Yellow are directly across from each other on the color wheel, which means they are complementary colors and they go together.

Purple and yellow are opposites on the color wheel and thus, go together. This is called complimentary colors.

Brown and Black

I think brow and black are both really good bases for outfits, but together they look tasteless.

It's tacky together and they don't match. Brown shoes and black pants. Major no no

It really depends on the shade of brown... I've seen many people pull it off well

Brown and black is beautiful ok. It reminded me of wolves and wolves are my favorite animals!

Orange and Blue

Although orange & blue are technically "Complimentary" colors, that only refers to their spot on the color wheel. They are opposites. If you try to use these two colors together, they often make the entire work look muddy. This is because those two colors mixed together literally make a muddy color. If you were to use them in a striped pattern, the lines would almost seem to vibrate. Just a good rule of thumb, avoid them.

I think orange is a great color to stand out against blue. It works well on a watch dial as a hand you want to stand out or other marker. I wouldn't go more than 5% orange on anything blue, but it is an outstanding way to make something stand out against blue.

They look great together. I have a orange and white strip dress with my Jordan's 11 unc and it brings everything out

Even though these colours clash I think they work well together

Green and orange don't go together at all not even a little.

Orange and Pink

Orange, if you think about it I have orange pants and I have to dress tacky, so I think those will be good to dress for tacky because they don't match!

If you use the right shades, they kinda look like sunset colours

I love this combination. Add red and you have a stunning trio!

I like so disagree these look like so beautiful

The Contenders
Yellow and Brown

No it's a good combo!

(If you don't or didn't watch Little einsteins you will have NO IDEA who I am about to talk about)

For some reason the colors Yellow and Brown remind a bit of Quincy and Annie...

I think mist color combinations can be good, but this is really ugly. But who knows maybe it could look good!

I like this combo. It reminds me of pee and poop together in the toilet.

Yellow and Brown?!?!? I'm saying it's really bad but bad combination

Yellow and Pink

One of my favourite colour combinations. I love how they go together. Should be removed from this list, as it makes no sense this being here.

Yellow... and pink. They're both vibrant and together, they burn my retinas... Thank god I stopped looking at those colours together.

I have a bunch of beautiful flowers that are solely a pink and yellow combination...they are stunning!

They are the worst color combo ever! I don't why blondes think they can get away with wearing pink!

Yellow and Black

I personally don't understand whats wrong with yellow and black, not only do most people think it looks good together, and they compliment eachother, but they were chosen by nature to be together on multiple organisms such as bees and some flowers!

How is black and yellow (wiz Khalifa song just saying) a bad combo, when I look at things that are black and yellow eg. A bee, out of bound Sellotape thing that the police have you no. It's awesome

Black pants with a yellow shirt? Is that so awful? It goes well for the bees, so why not for humans?

I feel like this looks good on certain people but other not so much. Just be careful

Purple and Brown

Purple is my favorite color and my hair is brown so yeah they work together.

I've dyed my hair dark brown ( almost black but not completely ) and a purple. Like a half and half :) and I completely say that it looks gorgeous together

Love the combination of rich purple and brown...classic

I love the right shades of brown with purple accent!

Gold and Black

Black looks good with everything except brown, in my opinion. My school's colors are black and well as at least 3 other schools within an hour's drive of me. Some places call a medium toned bright yellow (google Jasper High School Baseball - the JHS in Indiana- for the shade I'm talking about) gold. That yellow still looks good, but I definitely prefer black and metallic gold when I'm not showing school spirit.

Gold and black look great together, they are a warm and a neutral, which can almost never go wrong.

I really like this combination of colors because they compliment each other a lot

Gold and black look very nice and professional

Orange and Purple

I'm actually going to a wedding in October and the colors are orange and plum! Never would of guessed those colors together! But it's very pretty.

I think plum and orange can work together, because plum is a more reddish colour. But normal orange and purple together have I never liked.

Actually it's really nice. It's called Burnt Sienna - Unnamed Google User Remade

I think orange and purple do go together.

They so do not go together!

Gold and Orange

I think that gold and orange do not go together really well because gold is really sparkly and orange is just, slightly basic honestly. I just feel like they don't go together really well.

Eh, not really. I personally think that orange and gold are too similar in shade

Yeah, I agree with the same type of shade...

I hate this combo

Blue and Pink

I think pink and blue go together perfectly. You are absolutely wrong if you think pink and blue don't go together. You look fabulous just the way you are and nobody can tell you differently. Not even your family or friends... Etc. I'm so angry when people think that pink and blue don't go together. Look on the color wheel people.

Wow! I can't even imagine why anyone would even put this on a top twenty list for colors that don't look good together. Plus I Love the fist comment, " You look fabulous just the way you are and nobody can tell you differently. Not even your family or friends... Etc"

They're a bit weird : they remind me of Kirby and Meta Knight or Kirby and Blue Kirby...

I think that blue and pink go together if it's the right shade of blue and pink

Blue and Green

When considering this combination, you must think of bright green with bright blue, with no blend of the two. It's garish and ugly. Yes, the two can be paired well if you blend them and the contrast is not harsh, but with two solid colours bright green and bright blue are frankly a hideous combo.

Neon blue and green are fine, but a dark blue and green look like someone sneezed on a Pepsi can

There is a little rhyme which goes: blue and green should never be seen unless there's something inbetween.

I love blue and green being together. It's nature, blue sky and green grass.

Red and Aqua Green

I think it's a kind of interesting color combo. Perhaps neon

Love both these colours work great together

Gross combo. Irritating nonsense

I personily like aqua green but with red it doesn't go well

Pink and Red

Hideous they are just not compatible colors

Not that bad Valentine's colors

Worst color combination

They really clash

Pink and Purple

Eh. They're really childish colors but they're okay.

They do go together fine.

They do together

Maroon and Yellow

It would look nice in the fall like pumpkins?

It looks a bit like Red and Yellow... so nah.

Makes a great warm look


Purple and Green

The joker is purple and green

They go well together acording to the colour wheel

Reminds me of Jolly Ranchers.

I think that purple, green and blue all go pretty good together 👍

Maroon and Pink

Just does not look pleasing to the eyes

I think it looks really cute as long as you use the right shades 👍

If you think about it, red tights with a pink top on a hot blonde does not look bad, and yes, they are Valentine colors 💗❤️
