Summer is the perfect time to embrace color. After all, warm weather and bold colors just seem to go hand-in-hand, right? 

If you're ready to play with color this season, we're here to deliver with three fresh, fashionable combos. Scroll down to see the unexpected color pairings we're loving for Summer 2018.

1. Seafoam + Mauve

Pairing seafoam green with a mauve-y pink is a match made in style heaven. This combo makes a statement, but the pastel hues are still soft and understated. If you're not that big on brights, definitely try this one out.

For this outfit, style comfy, tailored trousers with a chic white blouse. Add pops of seafoam with these block-heeled sandals and a trendy circle handle handbag. A delicate gold necklace adds the finishing touch.

2. Gen Z Yellow + Deep Turquoise

This combination was totally inspired by the fabulous ensemble Frances McDormand wore to this year's Met Gala. Combining a bright yellow with super-saturated turquoise is attention-grabbing, fashion-forward, and so much fun.

To snag this casual-cool look, start with elevated basics: ripped denim and a textured sleeveless top. Liven up that Gen Z yellow even more with colorful turquoise sandals. We didn't incorporate a larger-than-life headpiece, but you can still add some extra flair with tassel hoops.

3. Peach + Tangerine

For our final look, we're going with a fruit-inspired duo! Wearing vibrant orange with a peachy pastel is the combo to try if you're a fearless fashionista.

Start by tucking a peach tee into a tangerine-colored skirt. Keep the orange going with cat-eye sunglasses, then tone it down a touch with neutral woven loafers. Accessorize with your fave necklace to complete this cute and summery monochromatic outfit.

Your turn!
