Have a look at the following discussions on the same:
Set ComboBox selected item highlight color[^]
How to change ForeColor of ComboBox's Selected Item?[^]

One of them says:
Override the SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey (and SystemColors.HighlightTextKey if you want):
<ComboBox>
    <ComboBox.Resources>
        <SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}">Red</SolidColorBrush>
    </ComboBox.Resources>
    <ComboBoxItem>One</ComboBoxItem>
    <ComboBoxItem>Two</ComboBoxItem>
</ComboBox>


Try out!
