This week I had an argument (good-natured, not escalating to Rabbit or Duck level) with one of my best friends about complementary colours. First was whether it was complementary or complimentary. I won that one thanks to the internet. Next we argued about the actual colour combinations. My friend argued that blue/orange and purple/yellow are horrible combinations. I countered with “what, you know better than the colour wheel?” and argued that both were great combinations, and she is just afraid of bright colours.
Although I didn’t see her today, I present exhibit A:
I don’t really like the blue and orange with black; I’m thinking a softer neutral on the bottom would have been better, if comfort in the form of American Apparel leggings hadn’t won out. But back to blue and orange. I love the combination, and my friend is wrong. I might concede that it is personal taste, however. What say you?
