Blue and white is a favorite color combination. I often reach for a royal blue top to wear with white pants. The accessories determine whether the look is dressy, casual, or professional. Blue jeans and a white blouse are also very versatile but not always appropriate.
When I started wearing this color combination with a pop of orange earlier this summer, many of you left comments that you would never have thought of putting these colors together.
A question I get on repeat is, “How do you determine which colors will look good with each other?” I often look to nature for inspiration. Nothing is more uplifting than a vivid blue sky with pure white puffy clouds. In the fall, the leaves turn orange and gold against a strikingly blue sky to create a contrast that I have always loved.
Earlier this summer, I was at the Inn on Biltmore Estate when I saw a stunning woman wearing a blue top with crisp white jeans. She was carrying an orange Hermes Evelyne III PM bag, which provided instant inspiration. The search was on for an orange bag within my budget. The orange Dooney & Bourke bag was the result of my long search.
Favorite silk scarves also provide endless inspiration for pulling together pieces to create harmonious color combinations.
The blue top by Clara Sunwoo was from My Fair Lady last year. The white jeans are by Liverpool Jeans Company. The espadrilles were by Ralph Lauren last year. Links in my posts may generate a small commission for me at no additional cost to you.
