Those shorts were the first thing I saw in my closet. I didn’t want to over-think my top so I wore this grey one, which has been on serious rotation.
I was shocked at how my “I don’t give a duck today” outfit actually looked cute and wondered what it would look like with some heels, particularly my red ones which I sample with every outfit. The results were amazing, so I whipped out my camera, asked my neighbor if he had a few minutes and here we are.
Now I know you’re wondering where a person who wasn’t bothered about looking cute got the time to contour her cheekbones. Long story short, one time I did a shoot with no make up, outfit was popping, face looked like I’d come out of a fight, so yea…never again.
Jokes side, this is why the outfit worked. The shorts are the loudest, so everything else would simply accentuate. Red might be a bold color but it’s a good accent to black and white, plus I distanced it from the shorts by putting it on my face (lipstick) and feet (shoes), then a bit in the necklace to tie it into the whole outfit. Light grey makes for a good transition because it can never overshadow anything.
The moral of the story is, a functional closet is one that has a good mix of bold prints and handy basics. All you have to do is put pieces together and try to find a balance with colors.
Alright folks…carry on.
