Color Combo to Try: Robin Egg Blue + Yellow

If you ever find yourself stuck in a style rut, playing with fun new color combinations is a great way to liven up your wardrobe. In this series, we feature unique and unexpected color combinations, then give you stylish outfit ideas so you can try out these color combos yourself. For more color-centric outfit ideas, be sure to check out our previous posts in this series.

Although most of the country is still experiencing colder-than-normal temperatures, I’m completely in a springtime mindset. So for this month’s Color Combo post, I wanted to pair two of the most spring-like colors out there: robin egg blue and yellow.

Both shades are bright, fun, cheerful, and look so fantastic when worn together. Even if the weather says otherwise, I guarantee that pairing these two colors will have you gearing up for spring!

Need some outfit ideas before you rock this color combo? Simply scroll on down to check out four stylish outfits featuring yellow and robin egg blue:

Outfit #1: Weekend Wear

While this look is made up of comfy wardrobe basics, the robin egg blue and yellow accents really amp up the style. Start by pairing a cute yellow blouse with a pair of light wash jeans. Add some striped slip-on shoes and grab a robin egg blue satchel. Contrast the color of the bag by painting your nails a pretty teal shade. For the finishing touch, accessorize with stacked silver bangles.

Outfit #2: Lunch with the Girls

This robin egg blue dress is quite the statement piece, and would work for day or night. For a casual everyday look, try wearing it with lace-up boots and a pair of tights if it’s extra chilly outside. Wrap a pale yellow scarf around your neck, then paint your lips a bright coral hue. Keep the accessories simple by slipping on a few mixed metal rings.

Outfit #3: Afternoon Lit Class

Look polished and colorful on campus in the outfit below. This cozy sweater is ideal for colder temperatures, and incorporates both hues. Pair the sweater with some robin egg blue trousers and a pair of neutral flats. A faux leather backpack is perfect for carrying the essentials, while gemstone earrings are a glam touch.

    I wore something similar to the 2nd outfit and my friend who is a sorioty girl said those colors don’t go lol. She was like if you word that around my sorioty after you left we’d all talk about u.

    I don’t care I love the combo. The funny thing is a few days ago she and her girls were all wearing something similar . I think the colors may have been just a bit different shades.

    I love these outfits, Ashley. One correction, though: on the description of the third outfit you wrote This sweater cozy sweater. Just out of curiosity, did you mean to write that twice.
