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.

    Then: hot pink & purple, usually in the form of two pair of socks, alternated & DIFFERENT COLORED UNLACED KEDS. Hot.

    Now, red & turquoise or pink & green.

    I was partial to watermelon (or hot pink) and lime back then, but I love turquoise with white and orange right now… more for decor than clothes though. I guess turquoise seems to be a bit of a color of the moment, judging by everyone else’s preferences!

    I was a big fan of fuchsia with teal. I’m not proud.

    Then: probably hot pink and electric blue.

    Now: It changes a lot but my favorites lately are a navy & berry combo OR mustard & eggplant. And then if we’re talking triads, I love my some purple with green and red-orange. (Dark green and eggplant hues, of course. Nothing eighties here.)

    I really did like and still do like fuschia and orange. That sounds bad, but I had this jacket that was that color and I LOVED it. It reminded me of this bubble yum that I liked that had orange inside of pink. That was actually in elementary school for me.
    I was in middle school for the flannel phase. So, I guess I liked plaid.
    I’ll have to think about what else I like, now. I do have some funny or odd ones.

    Jr. High? Turquoise and white or Pink and heather grey (I believe we are the same age!) :)

    Now? Everything!

    Pink and gray. Everything in my life was this combo, bedding, moon boots and even my hair bands. Funny thing is, now that I have a daughter I inadvertently put together outfits with this color combo all the time.

    I went to middle school in the early 90s and I think my favorite combo was forest green and maroon… or navy and forest green… I sort of gag a little when I see those colors (except navy, still got love for that one)

    Now? Um, I really like gray with anything – mustard, purple, black, brown, navy (see, still love)

    I assume, given your hubs, you know of this site?

    Like a colorgasm.

    Then: Pink and Purple. I had this long sweatshirt I wore over black stirrup pants with pink and purple hearts on it. So I would wear LAYERED socks…3 pairs! Pink, purple and white with my keds (and no shoe laces).
    Now: turquoise and white always makes me feel pretty and beachy. This time of year I am wearing lots of black with my carmel colored scarf….with gold accessories.

    Horrifyingly, I was SO into off-white and white together. Maybe NOT such a good look.

    Back in junior high, I was a fan of the dark purple AND light purple combination.

    As in: Light purple mock turtleneck under a dark purple v neck sweater.

    I am very much into the red and turquoise combo lately. In fact today I wore a red sweater with turquoise earrings. But back in the day I was all into hot pick and black. How very “regular” of me.

    I LOVE gray and yellow nowadays. I think I used to go for more all black and white back in the day.

    I was a neon green and purple girl back in the day. Ahh, memories.
