Even though "bland" shades of beige are currently trending, on the flip side of things, it's starting to feel like anything goes as far as color combinations are concerned. The street style scene from the various F/W 19 fashion weeks that wrapped up earlier this month was perhaps the most colorful yet (when people weren't wearing beige, that is), and the fashion crowd isn't following the rules anymore, either.
There were clashing colors, colors that were almost too similar to wear together, "ugly" colors, pastels, neons—you get the idea. Among these wild color combinations, we've started to see a few themes, and below, we chose the very best example of each to prove our point. If you're looking for new ways to shake up your wardrobe this year (without buying anything, in some cases), try the seven unique color combinations below.

Red + Hot Pink
If you're shy, the bold combination of hot pink and red may not be your go-to color selection, but now is the time to consider it. Its popularity has reached a fever pitch.

Pastels have notoriously been tricky, as people wanted to avoid looking like an Easter egg in the past. Now, Easter egg dressing is being embraced by the fashion crowd. 'Tis the season, right?
Wearing black and brown together was once a major faux pas, but those days are gone. It's certainly for the best because as you can see, it's a very chic pairing.
Yellow + Red + Orange
Typically, people have stuck to just one bright and juicy hue per outfit, but that's a rule of the past. This year, go big or go home with an all-juicy color palette.
Brown + Yellow
Wearing yellow and brown together tends to feel a little '70s, but is that really a bad thing? The '70s are cool, and either way, it seems like enough time has passed to give this combination a fresh start.
Red + Green
The first thing that comes to mind when you see this is probably Christmas. The bad news is that that's what people will assume you're dressed for when the holidays approach. The good news is that during other times of the year, people will just assume you're a really cool trendsetter.
