This article deals with the phraseological collocations of the English language and their classification. Since there is no single classification of English phraseological units, the article presents one of the most common thematic classification, namely the idioms with a color component. The object of this paper is to study these idioms. The means for studying are the analysis of scientific literature, the use of special dictionaries. The idioms with the components designating red, black, white, blue, green, yellow, gray colors can be distinguished among all the variety of colors. Phraseological locutions, especially the idioms with colors, elicit not only cognition interest, but are an impetus to further advanced study of the English language. Although the vast audience of English learners use the idioms rarely, it should be noted that one can easily demonstrate one’s proficiency in a language with the help of phraseological phrases. The materials of the study may be useful by educators and researchers involved in professional linguistic research and training
