Top Ten Colors That Don't Go Together

The Top Ten Colors That Don't Go Together

1 Red and Purple

Purple looks beautiful, and red goes well with almost every color. Sounds like it would be a great combination, but it is NOT

When I see these two colors I think of Aphmau and Aaron, which makes it better

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.

It depends on the shade like dark red and light purple is the ugliest thing I have ever seen and you can probably guess that a twelve year old with a Mary Sue OC chose those for her EIGHT FOOT TALL ANGELS HAIR COLOR

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

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.

3 Pink and Bronze

They're the best!

Um they look great together...

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!

4 Silver and Yellow

It makes me dizzyyy

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! )

5 Blue and Gold

I like it


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)

Thanks helps for my slide

6 Brown and Maroon

What is maroon...?

They suck together

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.

I love the color maroon, but with brown? They’re a similar shade so yeah.

7 Purple and Yellow

These do go together. They are the LSU colors.

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 ❤️

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.

8 Brown and Black

This should be #1 but noo the internet is mentally ill and excised ref and purple is WORSE than BROWN and BLACK

These two colours can be quite a startling combination.

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

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

9 Orange and Pink

I love those colors together

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!

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

10 Orange and Blue

Literally complimentary colors.?

They don't go bad together, just decent

They are horrible

Wow estos colores van bien juntos

The Contenders

11 Yellow and Brown

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

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

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

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

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

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

13 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

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

14 Gold and Black

Let's go Las Vegas nights

Vegas Golden Knights

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

Gold shirt, black jeans. yup dope - AlphaQ

15 Purple and Brown

They look fantastic together very cute!

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

16 Gold and Orange

I hate this combo

Just looks...bad

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.

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

17 Orange and Purple

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

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. - BlackberryTurtle

I think orange and purple do go together.

They so do not go together!

18 Blue and Pink

Blue & Pink: the colours of Cotton Candy would be the best though!

Noo! I like blue and pink!

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

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.

19 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.

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

20 Maroon and Yellow


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

Makes a great warm look

It would look nice in the fall like pumpkins?

21 Red and Aqua Green

That matched

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

22 Pink and Red

They really clash

Hideous they are just not compatible colors

Not that bad Valentine's colors

Worst color combination

23 Pink and Purple

They do go together fine. - Powerfulgirl10

They do together

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

They do tf

24 Purple and Green

Barney colors.

Reminds me of Jolly Ranchers.

Perfect together

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

25 Purple and Blue

Purple and blue is actually my favorite color combination (along with pink and yellow), so I disagree. - Jasmine21064

I think these colors go great together! They are 2 of my favorite colors. Light blue and light purple look great together, obviously, but a surprisingly gorgeous combination is light purple and navy blue. Turquoise also goes well with purple.

They look very great together.

This go great together I have it in my bed room

26 Red and Orange

Love those colors together

Red and Orange together ROCKS! It's my favorite combination

No way

I love this combination - darthvadern

27 Maroon and Pink

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

Just does not look pleasing to the eyes

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 💗❤️

28 Red and Blue

Why! Why would you do this? Unless you add green and make a Christmas tree fine but no..

Ugly in every way

Yeah - it sucks

Huh? This combination is amazing in my opinion, second best in my opinion - darthvadern

29 Brown and Yellow


I like yellow and brown together.

Love these 2

30 Bronze and Silver


Do they go together?

The Answer Is Yes.


31 Red and Green

For Christmas.

Splash of red with yellow green

32 Green and Gold

Those are my school colors GREEN AND GOLD FOREVER

I think green and gold are perfect together


33 Red and Yellow

Ketchup and Mustard

This is the color combination that I just cannot stand. I love colors, I love them all individually and finiding good combos-- this is not one of them. Gross.

Even though theses two colors are beautiful and are in the fire combination I just think they don't go with each other unless their is some thing between them then again this is just my opinion

Worst color combo ever

34 Brown and Pink

I think brown and pink matches perfectly. (Hard to say about dark brown or gray-brown)

Good combo actually. - Powerfulgirl10

I know it was on list.
This is cringe combination!

35 Red and Gold

Red and gold look FANTASTIC together but look best on people who have black or brunette hair.

Are you bonkers? They're awesome together! Throw on a red dress and add some gold jewellery and you have a fashion statement!

Iron Man's suit looks completely fine, great combo.

Your insulting Iron Man

36 Blue and Brown


I totally messed up my house picture using these colors! UHHH! This is terrible!

If you want that dated look from 10 years ago, feel free to collide brown and blue. Horrific combination.

Love dark and light blue with brown

37 Black and White

Black and white go great together, especially if you add in another hot color like red as an accent

Totally agree

It does matche

Black and white together look boring and dull. ⬜⬛ - cosmo

38 Yellow and White

When I was a toddler I used have a white and yellow striped sweater

They go great together

Hell no. its horrible. just horrible.

I have seen frech colonies and they look grt

39 Navy and Gray

Goes amazing together

Navy and grey look amazing together, especially on horses.

Never ever liked those together

40 Maroon and Blue

Worst combo apart from yellow and red. These two should never go together. I love colours and unusual colour combos but never maroon and blue!


41 Brown and Silver

Would silver wallpaper go with brown paint on doors skirting boards and dado rail

42 Black and Navy Blue

I think it works ❤️

Should be wayyy higher. The slight yet noticeable difference is really, REALLY painful to look at. I also see these colors together way to often like people, wake up! Even people who consider themselves fashion experts wear these and I'm just like I can't be the only one who noticed how nasty it actually looks. - Organ

Another bad combo. Very very tacky

If it was cyan blue it's AMAZING but it looks dull with navy blue.

Navy blue and white look nice but cyan and white looks boring.

43 Brown and Red

Yes they do,

I do not tink brown and red look pretty together but I think red and aqua green looks pretty


They look good toghter

44 Purple and Tan

Purple is amazing, and tan pretty much goes with anything so I am going to say yes, they go pretty good together.

45 Black and Peach

Guys do you understand its like all colour combinations? facepalm

Dude, seriously?

Black goes back with like everything! what

46 Mauve and Lime

It looks bad

Well, mauve is a lighter shade of purple. If it was darker, it might not go well, but I think it goes well with the light purple. Lime is my least favorite color though, - MaxAurelius

47 Orange and White

UGLY like hairless cats

Orange and white are the colors of my high school.

But those orange cream popsicles. - shawnmccaul22

48 Black and Brown

That do not mach

It does. I know everybody has got their own opinion but I know nobody who would consider black pants combined with classic brown Timberlands as a fashion sin, at least not in regard to the colors. - Organ

49 Black and Violet

I think black and violet look stunning together, more of a gothic mix, but very lovely all together.

50 Black and Green


I think it actually looks good. I used it once to color someone’s kindness Soul in an Undertale AU with Hatred (Black.)
