Your jelly lesson, from us to you.
Jelly Step One: When you think blue.
You think denims! Amélie shows
off some summery acid blue dungarees
teamed with some girly pink Salsada
pumps! You can’t go wrong!
Jelly Step Two: If you want
to wear a blue and pink look that is
set to turn heads – look no further! Emma
works the electric blue tone with shocking
pink for her #MeduseColor magic. Simply
Jelly Step Three: Showing off
a #MeduseColor style that is not only rich
in blues and pinks– it’s so very chic! Fluffing up with
a pink jacket and some simple blue denim jeans,
Sabrina shows how to contrast colours with
a touch of luxury!
Jelly Step Four: Not only do we have
a punch of denim – we have a wave of
double denim in Julie’s look! She’s
teamed it with her salmon-pink Méduse –
it’s city – chic with a hint of the exotic!
Jelly Step Five: And finally – Denim will never
die and Joy shows that! Mixing a dusty pink shirt,
with some cool denim shorts, finished with our
bright coral SUNLIGHT, it’s a look that
stands out from the crowd!
Blue and pink – two colours that are so vivid whatever the shade. It seems like these two pop-tastic colours are shades that work together so well – so whether you pair a soft salmon shade with a baby blue, or shocking pinks with electric blues, this is a match made in heaven.

Colour – it’s what makes our minds tick.
Discovered when the Egyptians found ‘lapis lazuli’, blue was seen as colour that was rich, royal and
regal. So what is the story of blue, from then to now?
– Around 2500BC, Egyptians experimented with inventing the world’s first artificial pigment,
the ‘Egyptian blue’ – hoorah! The world then followed suit…
– The industrial age was when the perception of the rich blue changed – ‘workaday woad’ was
a plant used to create blue fabric dye. Unfortunately it reeked (as it was made with manure)
and the colour was not as intense. Boo!
– But with the wave of modern manufacturing methods, blue pigments became cheaper. Cue
Picasso and his blue period from 1901…
– And from the 1950’s to present, blue has never been more alive. From Elvis’s Blue Suede
Shoes to the blue and black dress (or white and gold ha!), blue is in all areas of life.
How do you see blue? Rich and regal? Or, awesome and accessible?
