Your Favorite Color Combo


This is totally random, but did you have a favorite color combo back in your awkward middle school days? Pink and heather grey was a hot one during my middle school stint in the late eighties, but I preferred pink and royal blue. Because I was a REBEL, you see.

What about now? Oh, do tell. I love love love talking about colors. I’m quite partial to a red and turquoise combo myself.

    Oh back then I loved black and white or black and red.


    Now I love pink and brown, green and brown or light blue and brown. Oooh ooooh or orange and brown! Yeah I win and brown!

    my current absolute fav is turquoise and red combo! Second fav is fuschia/green combo. My middle school years I seem to have completely been blocked–they too were in the late 80s. Maybe its a sign that I wasn’t quite put together so my memory has conveniently forgotten it.

    Then: Teal and white. (I had a “units” outfit I loved in those colors.)

    Now: Purple & black… particularly my current outfit, which is a soft wine-purple sweater dress, black tights & pale-mushroom-y colored suede slouch boots. (I should’ve done a Working Closet post today – I’ll admit it, I look cute!)

    Oh! I love these! I’m mentally creating outfits with these color combinations right this very second.

    (Does that make me strange?)

    I loved red, purple and green, like this one ESPRIT sweatshirt my best friend had in fifth grade. Somehow it encapsulated all that was cool and classy to me. Ha.

    I’m digging on grey and yellow at the moment. And royal blue in general, but also with grey and black.

    But oh how I rocked a purple and pink TIE-DYED shirt (with pink! shorts) in the 6th grade. Sadly there is photographic evidence. And feathered bangs, SAVE ME.

    As a general rule in junior high, I tried to wear as many colors as possible. I was really into tie-dye. With shoulder pads.

    My favorite outfit, though, was turquoise and white. Picture, if you will, a scrawny seventh grade girl with giant hair. White jeans, turquoise keds. Giant turquoise t-shirt – pulled over to one side in one of those t-shirt tie things – that reads NOT! in big white letters. Turquoise and white checked headband behind my huge bangs.

    It’s amazing I made it out alive.

    TOTALLY pink and grey. I still have a nostalgic love for the combo, I must say!

    To this DAY when my bff from 6th grade thinks of me she thinks of Dark Hunter Green and Royal Plum Purple. Oh yeah. and sometimes I’d be all teal and purple and it would mess her world up.

    Scarlet red and Barney purple. Preferably together on one striped garment.

    I was always in to brown and blue or brown and pink. When I was younger and trying to not be noticed (my main goal for, oh, grades seven through nine), it was navy blue and olive. Please, don’t look at me.

    I now like gold and turquoise, turquoise and coral, gold and red, and pink and gray.

    I probably wore EVERY SINGLE COLOR AT ONCE back in my awkward days, wouldn’t surprise me at all. But now I love turquoise and ANYTHING — my house is slowly turning into a turquoise and red shrine, but I’m also partial to turquoise and gold (like my wedding!), turquoise and dark smoky gray (also like my wedding!), and turquoise and hot pink.

    Back then… LOVED hot pink & black.

    Now, LOVING chocolate brown & turquoise, brown & grey, orange w/ red accessories.

    This is fun!
