Question Help! - Cross country colors on palomino

Hello there! So I'm getting a new horse (hopefully) soon! The horse I'm getting is a palomino swedish warmblood gelding. He is quite the looker! Anyways, my current event horse, Millennium.. I'm still trying to debate whether or not I want to event him or just do jumpers. I'm thinking of still eventing him. His colors are zebra & pink (check out attachment.) And the way we do things at my house, is every horse has it's own tack and colors. My sister uses purple tack on one of her mares and royal blue on the other. It's a way we keep from getting all of our horses stuff mixed up. (We have nine horses.)

With that being said, what colors would look good on a palomino?! His previous owner uses teal & purple (think Charles Owen colors) and I think they look AMAZING on him, but I don't want to be a copyer. Thanks so much!

P.s. I attached a file of the horse I'm buying and my horse, Millennium, showing their colors.

something military looking? Like navy blue, white and gold? Brocade?

Here's my palomino in his colors! I think anything but yellow looks good on a pally however I think maroon would look the best!

equineeventer3390- I love your colors! I was actually thinking of that one.
VanillaBean- I was thinking of lime green & black, because that's the color of car I'm getting (camaro) and I thought it'd be cool to match haha. Especially since we're getting an Artic Cat four wheeler that's lime green. But my best friend uses those colors on her horse.

I was thinking teal & black, what does anyone else think? Also, black and pink? I've already got plenty of that laying around. :)

I've attached a photo of Courtney Sendak's palomino, Wil'Ya Love Me, decked out in pink and black.

TURQUOISE. I'm in love with the look of turquoise on light horses...
