Blue and purple – do they go together?

Wondering if you can wear a blue coat with a purple dress? We think you definitely can. Blue and purple work together quite nicely. To illustrate we’ve created a mock rendering of a model wearing a purple Diane von Furstenberg Wrap Dress with a blue McQ Alexander McQueen Belted model blue coat purple dress copy 2

The color purple contains blue so it makes sense that blue and purple would compliment each other.

If blue and purple are your favorite colors and you’re wanting to wear them together but you’re not sure how best to combine them, you can play it safe and just wear a purple top with blue jeans; or a blue denim shirt with purple jeans/pants/skirt. Denim is pretty safe to pair with anything.

But we don’t think you need to play it safe when it comes to wearing blue with purple. We think the two colors work very well together and you can approach styling with blue and purple without fear.
