Neutral Colors Always Work

Red is a strong color with a variety of shades. It can be difficult to pair it with other colors without fear of becoming a fashion “don’t.” If you’re uncertain what works with your red, pick one of the neutral colors for a classic, tailored look every time. White, black, navy and tan are all considered neutral colors.

Bravery is the Soul of Fashion

Mixing and matching colors is what makes fashion fun. Consider inspiration from traditional color wheel combinations. A monochromatic scheme would combine shades of red and pink within the same outfit. A complementary scheme would combine shades of red and green, while an analogous relationship would combine shades of red and orange. While many of these combinations may sound odd, remember that varying shades of each color will change the effect. Brown is a shade of orange and looks fantastic paired with a deep red in the fall.

Bottom Line

There is no one color that goes best with red where fashion is concerned. By taking account of the particular shade and the desired effect of the outfit, however, there is certain to be a right choice.
