color adventures: oh joy wears blue and green!
30 Mar 2017


This month's Color Adventures challenge seemed easy in theory, but as much as I love these two colors, I rarely wear them together! Here are four outfits I put together in green and blue from dressy to casual...

1. Just a Hint—Here's an outfit that brings in subtle touches of blue and green with shades that are slight and subtle. The velvet pants made the smoky blue a bit more textural and offers contrast to the lacy white top. The mint green shoes here are meant to be a focal point with the pop of contrast and fun shape.

2. 50/50—Here's an outfit that plays with equal amounts of kelly green and turquoise blue with an embroidered dress layered with a flowy spring jacket. Neutral silver shoes top off the dressy look ready for the office or for dinner out.

3. Pastel Pop—This one mixes a bunch of shades of blue and green but stays in the pastels for a flirty look perfect for spring. When mixing similar shades in different colors, make sure to add in a small contrast of color for visual interest (like the scarf) so there is a focal point of the outfit.

4. Bright and Light—Finally, here's an example where one color is bright and bold and the other is pale and more subdued. I paired this bright cobalt top with these pale mint pants for a casual and comfortable outfit made a tad dressier with silver heels.
