Navy and white. This is a classic sailing style, that allows both colors to pop on their own. The great thing about these colors is that it opens itself up to several pop colors to complement.   

Grey and black. Create a muted but complimentary look by combining this subtle color variation. This is a great staple look for anyone with items that are probably already in your closet. 

Brown and cream. The laid back look of brown and cream is a great option for casual and business looks. Stay in the warm tones to make for a more cohesive look.
