Wearing Black and Blue without looking like a bruise!

Fake Fabulous | Mixing Blue, green and Black together... with a pop of hot pink!

Wearing black and blue together is supposed to be one of those colour combinations that shouldn't be seen on a stylish woman.
A forbidden (and tasteless) mix.
Oh dear.
I've done bad again.

Other "ugly" mixes are:
Black and Brown.
Pink and Red.
Red and Green.
Yellow and Black.

Luckily, I don't care much for fashion rules.
Especially when it comes to mixing (and clashing) colours.
Playing with colour is a very personal thing and if you like the way a combination looks, then go for it!


Today, I decided to mix the forbidden blue and black, as well as a little bit of green!
Oopsy, did I forget that blue and green shouldn't be mixed either?
Silly me!

This look started with my chunky boots and worked up from there (my favourite way to dress).
The boots are very comfortable, perfect for being on my feet all day.

A large green bag followed, as it was essential for lugging around all of the things I needed.
Navy blue trousers and a patterned black top (See it in this post more clearly) were easy to wear, and comfortable.

Throwing this black and white coat over the top, was a decision I grew to regret later in the day.
This coat is made of a polyester mix and is unlined.
Consequently, it is not very warm at all.
Boooo.

Luckily, I had an extra cosy thermal layer hidden underneath my top, but it was not enough.
{Wishing for a cosy cardigan...or another coat!}

It's so disappointing when a coat does not deliver any warmth at all.
Although, for the price, I was hardly expecting great things.
Smarter layering is the answer.

The bright side was: I didn't get hot and bothered while running around!

A colourful and chunky necklace (last seen here) and some hot pink gloves, finished my look of nicely.

  1. I love those boots! And I love wearing black and blue together. I think in part because it is taboo and I'm contrary. Love the pop of pink gloves here!

  2. I do love putting together unexpected color combinations!
    My fave lately is yellow & pink--also strange for the colder months but oh well!
    It is amazing how some coats can be so warm, yet others not at all!! At least you didn't spend an arm & a leg on it!

  4. I love your boots, and they look perfectly matchy with your coat. It's a pity that your coat was not warm enough (that's a big dissapointment!). And I like your black and blue combo, because blue looks bright and interesting, and accessories make everything looks cool and kinda matchy!. You really rock!
    I like many 'forbidden' color combos, blue&green, red&pink, orange&purple. I think most of the colors could work together nicely if you find an intermediate color to add to the mix, or if you wear an accessory which involves all the colors in the outfit.

  6. If anyone can carry off evolving hair styles it's you dear Samantha. At this point it is reminiscent of a flapper, during the 1920's I love it!
    Perhaps you can wrap a style around that!!
