Wearing clashing colors is in fashion these days, but that doesn't mean that it's an easy look to pull off. In fact, it remains difficult as the bar has been raised for what looks good.

Below are a few style ideas that should help you wear unconventional color combos with more confidence and have you raiding your closet as you try to create your own clashing outfit for the day:

Black and Blue

If you want to break up your all-black attire, especially during fall and winter when coats are almost always en vogue, going with a blue coat over your black-attire is a great way to switch things up and add some personality to your overall look.

Black and Brown

Now, this isn't the easiest pairing, but they can make for an extremely awesome look. When trying to mix these two colors, try to focus on different dimensions, as well as textures and prints. If this is your first time, you might want to go the safer route by pairing a nearly-nude brown with your black outfit so it appears less heavy.

Purple and Yellow

Whoever said purple and yellow don't mix obviously has not tried it yet. Whether as a shoe embellishment or your overall outfit scheme for the day, a purple and yellow color combo is a great way to stand out in a crowd.

Navy and Orange

If you're not fully invested in the clashing colors trend just yet, navy and orange is a color combo you can start with. The two are relatively easy to pair together, especially during the fall season.

The secret to pulling off outlandish color combos is to try and play up the volume and dimension of the articles of clothing you're wearing. You can also choose to add something neutral or contrasting to make the colors pop out even more, like wearing a red boot with a yellow and purple outfit.
