Breaking the Law

Another color combination I am totally digging for next fall is black and bright blue. It's so unexpected! One of the first laws of fashion that I learned is that never the twain shall meet. I don't know who decided that, God probably, but it's just something that's always kind of stuck. I had a change of heart, though, when I saw the punky, energetic vibe they create when combined.


I'll try to shut up about colors now.

Life sucks when the it color of the season looks worst on you. I guess I'll be avant garde.

I can't wear that colour. Only in accessories or I'd love an electric blue panent pump. Otherwise it's horrific on me, particularly the shade of the last dress.

so you ARE still posting!
love all those clothes, usually blue and black makes me think of bruises and depression but it so works here.

What's key is how bright the blue is. I think a navy would just blend in with the black while a bright, turquoise or sky blue would look too spring to pair with such a neutral.

i am having some EXTREME trouble with this. i've only recently contemplated this idea, but my brain hurts too much trying to conceptualize something. mainly, things get thrown off because i wear a lot of black and have a navy blue pea-coat. they don't like each other. i guess i shall invest in the electric blue...

That made me laugh a little too hard for comfort. A+

Whenever I hear 'black and blue' I think of the Backstreet Boys. But Nick Carter aside, I love the DKNY outfit.

molly said...
