The general meaning of "out of context" I know is with the word 'take' i.e. when you take something out of context then it means that it has a chance of being misinterpreted.
As my question says:
- If I dress awkwardly, then is it or can I say that I did something that is out of social context?
Does "out of context" here mean "an unsuitable choice of dress"?
It seems to imply that I did something inappropriate.
Here's a picture example [source]:
Its description reads:
Display what you love, even if it seems out of context. Curiosities in this drawing room belonging to interior designers Philip Vergeylen and Paolo Moschino include two of Paolo's collection of silver tortoises | Soft neutrals with toned down gentle pastels combined with textured, worm wood gives this space a lovely, laid-back feel. Love!
This all seems to imply that "out of context" = unsuitable or inappropriate. So, is that another meaning of it?
