Colors to Wear with Warmer Shades of Coral

Colors to Wear with Warmer Shades of Coral

Warmer shades of coral, those with more orange or yellow, will look great with other warm to universal shades of similar depth. Blues and greens pair very nicely with coral, since orange is a complimentary color to blue. Look for warm navy, warm olive, teal, and aqua to accompany warm corals. A medium warm yellow is also a good option as it works well with the orange in the warmer corals. For neutrals, beige, camel, and deep warm brown will give a nice backdrop to let the coral shine.

Colors to Wear with Cooler Shades of Coral

Blues and greens work well with the cooler corals too, but we want cooler shades of those colors. Cool navy, cool teal, spearmint, and royal blue all work well with cooler coral shades. Salt white, bright white, and black all work well with the cool tones corals. Choose the neutral that is balanced with your coral shade.

Coral and yellow both say "Summer". Here we have put together a color blocked look with coral and yellow and tied it together with accessories in yellow, olive, and coral. Finish this look with warm browns, peaches, and/or golden shades on the eyes. Add a matching coral lip and cheek color, and a peachy or golden gloss to keep the warmth going from head to toe.

You cannot go wrong pairing a warm pink or a pinky coral shade with white. It's crisp, clean, and fresh! For this look, we kept the warm pink going with the sandals, bag and necklace. Finish this look off with cool brown eye colors. Add warm pink on the cheeks and lips, then top with a shiny coral or iridescent gloss and you will have harmony from head to toe.

Enjoy experimenting with this Sizzling Shade of Summer!
