#2 Pink + Black / Blue / White

Pink, we can all agree, is a universally flattering color for women. Now there are a million shades of pink that you can play around with. Depending on the undertone, pinks can be warm toned or cool toned. 

Warm toned shades, that is, ones that are more on the red or orange side, go very well with blue and white. For example, a simple bright pink shirt can be paired with blue denim jeans.

Purple is another feminine and flattering color that suits everyone. Its summer version is mostly lavender or lilac. It is indeed a rather easy shade to mix and match with. It goes with both of the primary neutral shades of black and white. And it also goes with blue. 

We all know summers are made for denims. So you can pair a cute purple top with a cute pair of denim blue distressed shorts.

Yellow is one of the brightest colors that we get to wear in Summer. Unlike, the other feminine colors, yellow is a solid warm-toned color, with all its shades on the warm side. Hence, it pairs well with browns and whites in terms of neutrals. 

For example, you can wear bright yellow or mustard yellow dress with brown boots.
