Winning colour combinations

There’s no denying it – women's fashion these days is fast-paced and frequently changing. Even with fashion though, there are a few basic rules that never change. This is especially true when it comes to accessorising.

Perfectly pairing your jewellery with your outfit is one sure-fire way to look great and stand out from the crowd. The colour of your jewellery should complement the colours in your outfit and vice versa.

Here's a quick colour guide:


Silver is a cool shade that looks great against almost any colour of clothing but to really make silver jewellery pop, great options include grey, burgundy, cream, as well as navy and royal blues. Shop silver jewellery.


Paired with black or red, gold is always timeless, but it also works well with emerald green. Or why not make a bold statement by pairing it with a gold outfit? Shop gold jewellery.

Rose Gold

Fairly versatile, rose gold works well with most shades and hues. If you want to avoid colour-clashes though, steer clear of oranges, reds and yellows. Shop rose gold jewellery.


The monochrome look always looks well put-together, so pairing black on black is a winning combination. Also consider a mix of outfit colours like black and another colour or shade, like white, to take the look a stage further. Shop black jewellery.


Audrey Hepburn’s timeless Breakfast at Tiffany’s look is the ultimate example of the power of perfectly pairing jewellery and outfits, with her elegant white pearls and black dress combo. Pearls come in many shades but always look great against blocks of colour.  Shop pearl jewellery.


Most purple-based jewellery, including violet, will look fantastic with outfits that are citrine, gold or green. Shop purple jewellery.


Either play it safe with a white or black outfit or, find an outfit that matches one of the colours in your multicoloured jewellery and emphasise that in a block, not pattered style, to avoid unsightly clashes. Shop multi coloured jewellery.
