Champagne is the luxurious name linked to shades of pale tan, such as dusty beige, pinkish peach and yellow-tinted taupe. An alternative to white for brides, the delicate hue is also a widely-used neutral in casual daywear. When selecting coordinating colors, first determine if your version of champagne has undertones that are more blue, yellow or red.

Dusky Lavender

Play up the pink in a champagne with red undertones by pairing it with dusky lavender. Stick with versions of this pale purple hue that have blue and gray undertones to provide a cool contrast to the warm, light champagne. For example, wear a dusky lavender top with champagne capris and heels.

Moss Green

Pay homage to Mother Earth by complementing cool bluish champagnes with a moss green. This pale, dusty color works best with darker, richer champagnes similar to white sand beaches when wet. For instance, accent a deep champagne cocktail dress with a moss-green sash or wrap.

Crimson Red

Add a vibrant pop of color to champagne outfits with the addition of crimson accessories, such as shoes, handbags and jewelry. Avoid adding too much red to a champagne outfit or it will quickly become the star. Pair a beaded champagne shell with black cigarette pants and accent the outfit with a crimson patent-leather clutch.

Chocolate Brown

Go monochrome by pairing champagne with a chocolate hue. Consider color matching your fabrics with paint chip samples at a hardware store to ensure your colors share the same composition, such as a warm or cool base. Select shades from the same gradient chart to prevent your palette from becoming a muddy mess. While teaming a warm champagne blouse with a chocolate skirt with a bluish-gray base will give the top a sickly yellow hue, a red-based chocolate will produce the perfect pairing.
