Top Ten Colors That Don't Go Together


The Top Ten

1 Red and Purple

Red and purple are beautiful together. Vibrant and energizing. Love them. Of course, I am a member of the Red Hat society and those are our colors. BE BOLD.

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.

2 Orange and Green

Orange and green work perfect together or maybe it's just that I'm Irish and there 2 of the 3 main colours of Ireland.

I think orange and green go together! They're the Hurricane colors!

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! - keycha1n

3 Pink and Bronze

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

Beautiful combo

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

Pink and bronze go beautifully together!

4 Silver and Yellow

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

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

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

They go well together.

5 Blue and Gold

If it's a navy blue it goes with gold, if it's lighter blue it won't ( just like gold and silver don't go together)

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

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.

My school colors so yeah the go well together

6 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.

Oh lord please never combine these

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

The only one I agree with here this is awful

7 Purple and Yellow

These do go together. They are the LSU colors.

Lakers purple and gold (yellow). They do go 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.

I think they you lovely thing together

8 Brown and Black

These two colours can be quite a startling combination.

My costume for a play is a plain dark brown dress with a teal and black corset and the black totally kills it

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

Too dark no?

9 Orange and Pink

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

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!

Lol love it looking like sunset and red

Most of these are acutally cute

10 Orange and Blue

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

Yes definitely two colors that look good together

I think orange and blue are bad for each other!

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.

11 Yellow and Brown

When I think yellow and brown the first thing that pops in my mind is a toilet ( for obvious reasons)

No its 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...

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

Finally one I actually think is bad

12 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 is an ugly color in general but try matching it with pink then you would look like 2 different cheerleading squads that was smashed together

These just don't look good together at all. Under any circumstance.

13 Purple and Brown

I love the right shades of brown with purple accent!

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

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

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

14 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!

I love Wiz Khalifa he sings black and yellow black and yellow black

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

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

15 Gold and Black

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

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.

I think they go really well together.

16 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.

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

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"

17 Red and Aqua Green

NOPE THIS IS UGLY! But useful for mismatched clothes day

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

Gross combo. Irritating nonsense

I don't really like it. - lovefrombadlands

18 Gold and Orange

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

19 Pink and Purple

They do go together fine. - Powerfulgirl10

They do together

20 Blue and Green

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

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

I think blue and green are great together. - darthvadern
