Best Color Combinations

Hey everyone! What do you think are some of the best color combinations on a Jingle Dress?

I think the one of the best ones I've seen is the dress of one the girls I travel with. She has a light shimmery silver fabric for her base dress And then she has a purplish blue and a dark pink for her applique. She has silver jingles. It looks really good!

My favorite color is purple, so I tend to like colors used in combination with purple.

I think black and white look good together; other wise just about any shade of green will do for me.

good thread kwezanz............


I like any colour, all the colours, most of all I like to play and design and create with them. Thank gawd for colour! Got to try to combine different ones to see what looks good with what. Its fun!

Ahaw... my personal favorite is black/white/red. Never mind that they happen to be MY personal colors ;) Dark blue & white look good to (my daughters colors to be sure ;))

Booch igo - You can always count on them black dressed dancers for help too... maybe it was Sweetie that was talking to me one time long ago about how different colors are reserved for certain things - aniisha, those black dresses belong to special women.

Mii ezhiwaybuk noongom. :D

Them dark dresses are pretty. But man do they soak up the sun! My dress is navy blue and on them bright sunny days I am just drenched with sweat. It's worth it though.

My personal colors are black and turquoise but I looooove seeing the reds and blues. I've seen a few nice white dresses. Some of the more contemporary dresses are very pretty but I've always been on the plain side.

Myself, I am planning onmaking one for allround contests next year. The main colors are a purple stain with neon orange sequin material. It will also have different colors in it for designs but those will be my main colors.
I just finished a shawl and skirt. It is baby pink stain with turquise, light green lame', yellow and neon orange in it, with rainbow swirls through out. I am hoping ot post apicture of it in my gallery later. The skirt goes up the sidewith a turquise flair attached to the pink body.

wel i saw this dress that is wine red with silver dot marterial added to it....a really pretty combo is wine red with dark red or cranberry red or black and then use black for fringe at the end of the dress...now thats pretty....lemme see navy with dark blue and black thats pretty or use navy and silver dot material as a add on..one thing i foudn out when useing shades its always use something that aint too bright like a light red i would never use..or light green ...anything that would make ya squint because its too bold i would never suggest useing...i find the darker colors tend to be more prittier-becca

i think alot of that also has to do with the material type...like if you use broadcloth poly blend thats good for fall and winter and beginning of spring when it aint so hot but during the summers ya should use a lighter type of material like i cant remember the name of the material (jest one of them days) but yay its the pits to use lining in that type of material but if ya weight out the fact swet ,no swet ...i'd rather do that extra work and put on that lineing on the lighter weight matieral than to be sweting in front of ppl..expecially when theres cute guys around it aint so appealing to a guy if we swet alot..*lol*

i like to use a lot of blues as my main color, with several colors to go in with it: like silver, yellow, white, a little black maybe, and many others, not all at once though of course :czyeyes: :)

I am making my daughter a new dress. The primary color is a shiny pink. On the bottom it will have an aqua turqoise with purple in the abckground with a lime green flame over it. I hope it turns out ok. If you know how it is when you design a dress, you have an idea what you want and than it kinda turns into a totally different scheme. So far it looks ok. And that is just on the bottom. I still have her sleeves and the rest of the dress to go. But for now it looks cool.
