Tips & Trends For Columbia's Fashionistas
Be Seen In Blue And Green
Ever heard of a virtual fashion show? I hadn't until Donate Life Missouri, Donate Life America’s local chapter, contacted me about their Blue and Green Virtual Fashion Show for today, April 20. The organization asked seven fashion bloggers to create a blue and green outfit, the organization's colors, to promote the “20 Million in 2012” campaign. According to DLA, there are 113,115 patients in the U.S. waiting for organ, eye and tissue donations, as of March 2012. More than 1,000 of those waiting for donations are Missourians. One donor can save up to eight lives.
That's me on the left. For my outfit, I decided to pair a Max Mara lime green jacket with a Loft button down. I finished the look with jeans and flat boots.
Your mom may have told you “blue and green should not be seen unless there’s something in between,” but that’s one of those fashion rules no one follows anymore. The combo can work well as long as the tones you choose complement each other. A dark green skirt wouldn’t work with a blue pastel shirt.
Need some inspiration for this color combo? Check out the three famous fashionistas below. Jessica Biel keeps it classy in a ruffled green shirt and a navy blue skirt. Her look is simple, but dressy enough for a red carpet event.
To her right is Kendi Skeen, a popular fashion blogger, who shows how the color combination can be used in one piece instead of two. On the far right is Kerry Washington. Her look isn't one you'd wear to the office, but it's perfect for a glamorous night out.
