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?

I detest yellow and green together
and I know exactly where that comes from: from making a necklace at primary school with yellow and green beads and I thought it was horrible

also dislike navy and black, orange and khaki, green and red......

Im not a fan of black and blue, think it looks awful, although sometimes there are exeptions depends on the shade of blue.
Light denim with black shoes...ugh
Oh and double denim...even worse if the denim doesn't match. Hate that.

BIGlilBUBU · 09/11/2006 14:26

I dont count dark denim as navy, thats one of the exeptions imo.

Smurfgirl · 09/11/2006 16:25

Hate black and brown - but this seems acceptable now? Black and tan is ok.

Also navy and black.

Navy and grey is v.popular at uni looks a bit school uniformy to me.

expatinscotland · 09/11/2006 16:26

Never heard of this black w/denim thing.

harpsichordcarrier · 09/11/2006 16:29

I wear quite a lot of brown and black, I don't mind that.
I would wear white and beige too (not cream).
navy I hate because it used to be my school uniform, with a maroon tie

SoMuchToBits · 09/11/2006 16:32

I wear navy with lots of things, but not brown or black. I really hate yellow with either red or purple.

northerner · 09/11/2006 16:32

When you are as gorgeous as me, colour combinations do not matter.

hoxtonchick · 09/11/2006 16:33

and another rather fine x-post!

welshmum · 09/11/2006 16:35

I accidentally tried on one of those Roland Mouret Gap dresses in navy with brown tights and shoes. On paper that sounds hideous but it looked ok. Would wear it with black tights and shoes too. Don't think it's a disaster....

northerner · 09/11/2006 16:36

Cod do you wear your brown boots with your swishy sequined skirt from monsoon?

TheHighwayCod · 09/11/2006 16:37

i havent got a skirt from monsoon
i haev a greena dnwhite kaftan

thats it

Bozza · 09/11/2006 16:40

I have black and brown boots - which ones I wear depends on which jeans I am wearing and also the top. I have red boots too, but they are very spiky and not practical. I would not wear the brown boots with the grey skinny jeans.

So that is one I am not keen on:
brown and grey

BIGlilBUBU · 09/11/2006 16:53

I have some of those flat boots, got them in black and brown they only really go with jeans. Not light jeans mind.
