The nice thing about fashion is that you can really get creative with it, which is a bit on the obvious side. However, too creative can be overwhelming and give mixed signals about your style. Too much creativity can just make an outfit clash and be confusing and even hard on the eyes. Then again, not everything needs to match to a T and not everything has to be straight-laced and predictable. The rule of thumb is that you can throw anything into the mix with neutrals and you really can’t go wrong. Mixing burgundy with a dark grey and beige shoes makes for a cute and sophisticated color palette, but it risks being a little boring if you’re trying to liven up an outfit for the night. You can still remain reserved while adding in pops of color and (gasp!) omit the neutrals altogether. How is this possible might you ask? Hence the perfect example in photo right. The wine-colored top with peasant sleeves that taper at the wrist actually complements her forest green-colored Miu Miu skirt quite nicely. The colors are amazing together, even with the kind of complicated pattern on the front of the skirt. Don’t feel too accomplished at this point because, although you may have done well with being brave enough to pair these hues, you need to add in the shoes. And no, not brown or black. Try something totally outrageous. Who knew that these sparkly cantaloupe pumps would top off this outfit? It is, in fact, a flawless look, but one that you need to put some thought and time into in order to actually make it work out well. Breathe new life into an outfit by slowly replacing a standard color with something more vibrant.
