Reader question:

EastbourneWilko @StylistMagazine is it true? Should blue and green never been seen? #fashionadvice

Answer from Stylist's Fashion Desk:

In my opinion, any colour can be worn with green, even blue. As my florist mother used to always tell me, flowers are every colour of the rainbow - yet they all have a green stem and leaves. The simple trick to wearing blue and green together is to concentrate on the shades and to remember to always opt for a colour contrast. Don't try and wear lime green and sky blue together for example, the combination will be bright and garish. Instead, try lime green and navy blue together for a still colourful, but more modern combination. The same will also work for a darker bottle green, which you could wear with a brighter teal.
