Blue and green should be seen without a colour in between

Blue and green, DRSSD Workwear

We’ve all heard the saying – “Blue and green should never be seen unless there’s a colour in between.” Did you know this saying didn’t originate in fashion? The roots of this statement likely come from seafarers, who believed you should never paint the hull of a vessel green for fear it capsized and would camouflage in the blue water.


In fact, green and blue can be complimentary colours that work well together in many contexts. Think about some of the beautiful scenes we see in nature – the colours of a clear sky and lush green vegetation impeccably intertwine to create a sense of tranquillity. Blue represents the vastness of the sky and the depth of the ocean, conveying a sense of calmness and stability. On the other hand, green represents the lushness of nature, symbolizing growth, harmony, and vitality. Combining these two colours brings forth a sense of serenity and connection to the natural world.


In design and fashion, the combination of green and blue can create a soothing and harmonious effect. Experimenting with different shades and tones of blue and green allows for personal expression and the opportunity to convey a sense of sophistication and serenity through one’s style choices. Pairing our winter sky peplum blouse and meadow green crossover skirt is one such example of how blue and green can unite to create this calming effect.


It’s important to remember that beliefs and superstitions may change contexts as they are passed down from generation to generation. The pairing of blue and green is a timeless and enchanting combination that brings a sense of tranquillity, connection to nature and visual delight. Let’s embrace the beauty of all colour combinations and celebrate the serene harmony of green and blue!
