Which colour combinations should NEVER be seen together?

Think navy and brown.

Someone mentioned black boots and jeans on another thread - not 100% sure about that one.

Also not sure about Trinny and Tranny's no colour with black. So, what do you wear - just white/cream/beige?

Not white and beige together. Not Navy and black.

doggiesayswoof · 09/11/2006 12:46

Navy and black. At least that's what my mum says.

doormat · 09/11/2006 12:47

yeahinaminute · 09/11/2006 12:47

Lime Green and Scarlet with a dash of bubble gum pink ... definite no no that !!

navy and anything ( I HATE navy) (except with white/cream)

some odd colour combinations look really good, i think stuff rules wear what you like

Tutter · 09/11/2006 12:51

navy and black from me too

used to see lots of navy suits + black shoes in the office

Tinker · 09/11/2006 12:52

Red and blue - depends on shades. Jeans are blue. Mind you, never buy blue clothes, not had to think about that one...

green goes with virtually everything, there are flowers of almost all colours after all

Mid toned blues look rubbish with blue denim jeans.
Agree that navy/black and brown/black don't go.

What's this about black boots and jeans?
I think black boots look fine with darker jeans.

saadia · 09/11/2006 14:02

Didn't realise navy was so unpopular. I think the worst combo is pale blue with red.

I think black boots look OK with very dark jeans in a semi-smart-casual situation. Other than that, I wear blue trainers.

White and cream are a no-no.

Why are so many 'work' outfits navy blue, when you hardly ever see decent navy blue shoes to wear with them?

marymillington · 09/11/2006 14:08

I think it depends on the navy - french navy can look fab with black (if clothes themselves are of a youngish/non fogey sort). And it can look wonderful with greens and greys. Brown and black can also look fantastic together in wintry outfits if the brown is not too dark.

I reckon the absolute no-nos are black shoes/boots with anything other than a black outfit, black with denim, and any combo of red and white (blood and bandages).

foxtrot · 09/11/2006 14:09

Do you count dark blue denim as navy? Hope not!

the only combo that I find really offensive is pink and orange - strangly popular on small girls clothes for some reason
