Colour Coordinate Your Outfit


Colour Coordinate Your Outfit – I hope you’re all well and having a great day so far! In this post I’m talking about how to colour coordinate your outfit – not over the top and barbie-like, but cute and elegant! 🙂

Colour Coordinate Your Outfit – Accessories

Accessories are key when it comes to your outfit, you could be wearing one of the most basic t-shirts yet layering it with a statement necklaces transforms everything!

Colour Coordination doesn’t mean that you have to colour coordinate everything, it’s little touches here and there that keeps it from looking tacky!

See this beautiful BVLGARI Monete Necklace  – simple and very chic!

Colour Coordinate Your Outfit – Handbag & Shoes

Your handbag and shoes are two main things when considering what (and how) to coordinate your overall look – If I’m wearing pink heels, I’ll opt for a grey bag with a keyring that’s pink – I won’t choose a pink handbag….that’s all a bit too much.

If I’m holding a grey pink handbag, I’ll wear black shoes and team it up with a pink chain necklace or pendant – again you’re keeping things simple but still co-ordinating your outfit.

See this lovely Kate Spade Handbag  and these gorgeous Valentino Heels (bloggers love these) 🙂

Colour Coordinate Your Outfit – Keep Things Simple

I always say it’s better to keep things simple, there’s nothing worse than trying too much or being over-the-top with things you wear….an all black or white outfit looks great against a bright pink handbag or shoes – classy and elegant remember!

Even a simple grey t-shirt with boyfriend jeans and pastel yellow / green heels would look cute – add a statement necklace with touches of the same pastel shade to colour coordinate your outfit – simple, edgy and chic! 🙂

 These Alexander Wang Boyfriend Jeans are really cute and fit in all the right places! Along with this comfortable basic t-shirt from H&M!!

I’d love to know what you all think – do you colour coordinate your outfit? If so what do you look out for and is there specific items and colours that you like to use?

    I don’t always colour coordinate my shoes and bags. Like you, I will wear black shoes, for example, and pair my grey bag with a grey scarf. Looks really cute! 🙂 Hope you’re well. x

    Simple is what I mostly go for. I like colour coordinating my outfit when I have a special occasion however most of the time I just wear what comes to my hand 🙂 x

    I’m always trying to find the balance between coordinating things and being too matchy-matchy! I absolutely love the idea of the Kate Spade bag with the Valentino heels. x

    I always struggle to colour coordinate my outfits! I think my sense of fashion is just poor to be honest. 😛 I think accessories make the biggest difference, I’m not much into handbags but a matching necklace, or a bracelet can really transform an outfit! x
