MIX and MATCH

In the last post there were 8 jackets, 6 tops and 6 bottoms (pants and skirts).Some items were casual and some more formal.

The colours were for all the seasonal palettes so someone with Autumn colouring would tend towards the blues, turquoise and orange while someone with Spring colouring would head towards the clear blues and greens. The neutral items could be worn by most seasons but perhaps a colourful scarf in your seasonal colours next to your face would improve the overall look.

How many combinations could you make out of those items?

Add some scarves to the equation and there should be many more outfits; and we haven’t even added bags, shoes, glasses and jewellery,  which can also make an outfit more casual or more dressy as well as providing many more options.

Do you know your best colours? Make sure that your colours are not washing out your skin. You should look healthy in your best colours!

Work wear
 Some of the clothes overlap from my other posts so that if you had one of the jackets, for example, you can see how it works with different skirts, pants and dresses. Silver jewellery would look nice with the red dress, but if you are a warm colouring, gold would work also.
Different skin tones need different reds. A warmer skin toned person could wear coral reds, warm spice and wild berry colours and a cool skin toned person would look best in Burgundy, Raspberry or Strawberry reds, or a blue red like the Witchery dress featured.
