I feel like it’s starting to become old news for me to say that I like mixing colors. But let me just say it one more time, with feeling, I LOVE mixing colors. Exploring with different color combinations can really make an old piece shine like new again.
My new Favorite way to do colors is with the complementary colors. Here I use yellow and purples. It can also work with blue and orange and red and green. I know that a few things may be coming to mind with these pairings…sports, high school colors, Christmas. yuck! I too have the fear of looking like an obsessed sports or Christmas fan sometimes when doing this, but here is a little trick…try mixing different shades of the complementary colors.
Here I am wearing an obviously VERY purple skirt, but with the yellow and white striped shirt, not only is the yellow more of a pastel, but its also toned down with the shear chiffon and the white stripes.
Another color combo I am absolutely love is turquoise and coral. Its a nice was to do the blue orange with out being overly bright, and the colors are everywhere this summer, so it’s an easy combo to accomplish.
I did decide to style my outfit with ( what do ya know!) more colors! I promise that this wont be the only thing I talk about, but my next post will be obnoxious with a red, white and blue post. Whoops!
