Combining colours

LogoWhen I was young you didn’t wear blue with green or brown with black and you most certainly didn’t pair red with pink. Thankfully, times have changed and most of the old fashion rules have been thrown out the window!

I never did understand the problem with blue and green. After all, we see that combination in nature all the time. The sky is blue and the trees are green and we don’t find that aesthetically unpleasing. When it comes to fashion, I’m particularly fond of navy and emerald green together. Here are a couple of combinations that I found on Pinterest.

Brown used to be a staple in my wardrobe and life definitely got easier when combining it with black became acceptable, but what about red with pink? Apparently that’s a trend that’s continuing into fall, but I’m having trouble getting my head around it. The outfits shown on the runways are always a bit outlandish, but even if the clothing was more my style, I’m not sure I could see myself in this colour combination.

What about you? Do you wear pink and red? Would you? What are your favourite colour combinations?

  1. Hi Elaine, I agree, Blue and Green has been underestimated! They are Gorgeous together! Pink and Red is equally eye catching however if you’re not ready to embrace the trend Full On take some baby steps and incorporate the two colors in a floral print but do try I know you’ll like it.
    Another combo that cabi is especially fond of is Navy and Black, again it’s so unexpected that it catches you eye in total appreciation of how sophisticated the combination is.
    Don’t be scared to combine unexpected colors, You’ll never know until you try!
