Style Myth Busted
Happy day reader dear!
I need some help! I’m in a quandry. I have a few projects that need extra time through the end of the year, and I am in desperate need of a blogging break for the rest of the month. I usually take August, and didn’t do so this year. Lesson learned. I will still be posting on Fridays, and if you need a fix the other days of the week, just hit the random post icon on the toolbar at the top and see where it takes you! (It’s the icon on the far left that looks like a little box with arrows at the corners) I hope my neglect won’t break your heart! If you will be broken hearted, or if you will be just fine, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below…
When our boys were young, we loved watching episodes of Mythbusters with them. The utter silliness. The explosions. The sheer magnitude of science put to the use of entertaining education. I get to be a mythbuster of a different sort all the time! Since there are so many style myths out there, I thought it time to do a little series busting style myths. Hmmmm. (I have some of those already… They may need updating!)
Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen (together) is not a style myth I grew up with, but apparently, it’s a common one in some places. So let’s get busting!
Blue and green are next to each other on the color wheel; they are besties! Of course you can wear them together. Think: Sky and trees. Lake and bushes. We see blue and green together all the time in nature! Wearing blue green and blue-green together creates an analogous color combination. Peaceful. Cool. Refreshing. What’s not to love about that?
If nature isn’t enough proof for you, how about tartans? There are pages and pages of blue and green tartans at the Scottish Register of Tartans. It’s a fun little rabbit hole! Enjoy the tumble… There’s also the ubiquitous school uniform and flannel shirt tartan! (I know most people call them plaids, but a plaid is actually a garment, a tartan is the pattern we associate with them.)
So how about you? Was Blue and Green Should Never Be Seen part of your style mythology or fashion rules when you were growing up? If so, does pairing blue and green bother you? What colors do you love together? Or what colors can’t you bear the thought of pairing? Do tell! I will be following up with comments, even if I am not posting for the month… And do promise me I’ll see you again in November!
