World Cup 2014 is moving into the playoffs tomorrow and all eyes are on Brazil. There is quite a lot of reporting on the country at the moment and in one of them, it was explained what the colours of the Brazilian flag actually mean:
– Green represents the forests of Brazil.
– Yellow symbolises Brazil’s mineral wealth.
– Blue represents the sky over Rio de Janeiro on 15 November 1889 – the day the Republic of Brazil was declared.
I found that really interesting and was thinking that Green – Yellow – Blue would actually make an interesting colour block combination, too.
The key to mixing black and blue is to ensure that it appears as an intentional style decision. You don’t want people to think that you just confused the two colours, so make sure the colors are distinguishable from each other.Also keep the fabrics in similar families, i.e. combine lace with lace, wool with wool, jersey with jersey, etc.
And lastly, wearly this colour combination only if the color characteristics of your hair, skind and eyes are pre-dominantly cool. If they are not, I would advice you to get hooked on another trend. This color combination will do nothing more for you than taking away all vibrance in your appereance (and nobdy wants that, right?).
It’s about time for a new article on trends for this fall/winter season. And this one is a real shocker for the fashion world: Mixing black and blue has become acceptable and is now even considered chic and trendy!
For many years we have been told that mixing black and blue is a huge fashion faux pas. Together, the two colors are just too dark, too cool and will make you look like a bruise. And besides that, why combine those two if both of them go so well with a lot of other colors?
Why? Because they look GREAT together!
So get over your antiquated fear. Pronto.
When done properly, black and blue can add a very sophisticated dimension to an overall clean and classic look. For fall 2013, designers like Celine, Michael Kors and Rebecca Taylor are just all about it.
