At first thought you might think you can’t wear purple with blue…

Purple and blue as far as outfit combinations go are two colors that might seem like they wouldn’t really work well together; but you might be surprised to find that purple with blue doesn’t look like a mismatched combination at all.

Of course it really depends on the colors that you choose to combine.

It’s said that there are over 60 shades of blue and over 50 shades of purple. So you have a wide range of color combination possibilities. Some combinations are going to work better than others.

We suggest contrasting lighter shades with darker shades. For example if you’re wearing electric blue trousers you might consider a lighter purple top. But

To help give you a visual idea of how your purple with blue outfit might look, we scoured to web to find pictures of ladies wearing purple with blue.

Have you ever worn a purple top with blue jeans?

You’ve probably worn purple with blue before without giving it a second thought. No one would question if a purple top goes with a pair of blue jeans. Or if a purple bottom goes with a blue denim shirt.

There’s nothing in Baubles to Bubbbles blogger Olivia’s look above that would make anyone question the purple with blue combination. Olivia wore this look in 2013 and blogged about it in a post titled “Chambray & Pencil Skirt“.

So you can see that purple with blue is actually a perfectly fine combination.

At least we think purple and blue go nicely together. But we appreciate that you might not agree even with these examples we have shown. That’s the thing about style. Style is subjective. And what one person thinks looks good another person might not. So if you want to wear purple with blue keep that point in mind. If your friends tell you that the colors clash don’t worry about it. Just because they don’t like it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear it.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
