I don’t have rules against color in my wardrobe. I’ll wear orange. I’ll wear yellow. I’ll wear lime green. I do however, have some predispositions for certain shades, tones, and saturations of color. Generally, I’m good with bright colors, jewel tones, and neutral tones (which I define as like navy for the blue family, rose for the pink family, burgundy for the red family, mustard for the yellow family, etc. There’s probably a more accurate name but oh well). Generally I’m not good with pastels. I also generally stray away from primary colors- what I like to call “true red,” “true blue” and “true yellow.” Whip out a color wheel and those are the colors that anchor it.
However, somehow, in this outfit I managed to include some shade of each of the primary colors. All in one outfit.
Cardigan, jeans: Forever 21
Shoes, ring: Charlotte Russe
I didn’t do this consciously, because if I had realized what I was doing, I never would have done it. Red, blue and yellow in one outfit equals a playground. But I think that somehow this came out fairly sophisticated. What do you think?
