Keepin’ it teal (…and tan and red)

Often when we’re experiencing a lack of inspiration otherwise known as blogger’s block on SL™©®(?), we will peruse RL fashion magazines/blogs and see how things are being reflected in-world. We came across an article which caught our attention, mainly because of the colour combination the writer was endorsing. Teal. Tan. Red. dahlnicteal.png

I try to avoid the Paris Hilton matchy match fashion trap , but even still, these were three colours I had never thought to group together. To my surprise, they make a very striking and still put together combination. Just the right amount of earthy and splashy. Best of all, it looks great on ladies and gentlemen!

I will keep the clicking keys to a minimum and let Nic’s snaps do the talking for our favourite colours of the week.

Side Note: I am loving this new-to-me cropped bob. Admittedly, I didn’t wear a lot of ETD styles as a blonde, but as a brunette I have found some of my favourite styles and shades there. Hence, this perfectly sheared Cleopatra meets Natalie Portman, a style I love for Spring.

  1. I’m diggin it! It’s interesting because when you say those colors out loud and picture them – it’s kinda like “hrm” but then seeing them actually in use makes you go “wow, they actually work!” …great choices, I imagine that has alot to do with how it came out – I bet a teal button up, red leather pants and a tan neck-tie wouldn’t have come out as well. lol.

  2. That sounds like a dare – Nic, you’re up. lol
    You’re definitely right about that, Dove. One colour certainly needs to be the dominant otherwise it could hurt your eyes, and of course it needs to be matched up with tasteful articles of clothing.
    I’m really glad you had the same reaction we did! Now it’s made me think, what other crazy colour combinations have the power of wow.

  3. How about Blogger’s SLockage (grrr)… it and great ideas always looking at RL stuff—and totally loving the Natalie Portman—ahh the new realms of pleasure you will find at ETD, Truth, Armidi and so many more for those lovely chocolate locks.

  4. I am liking the teal skirt. It does go very well with the other stuff in the outfit. I should really give that a try. It’s a very spring look! Good job, you guys!
