Hey beauties, ever had the thought that wearing the same colour on top of each other would be too much and ended up scrapping that idea and paired your blazer or cardigan with a white or black shirt instead? Well, you don't have to worry about wearing the same colour on top of each other anymore, in fact you can style an entire outfit with the same colour scheme - which would be fun! But we'll save that for another day. Let's keep it simple today and style our top half with the same colour scheme. Now you can do this with any colour, I just chose to play with my pink pieces today.
Tips on styling an outfit with the same colour scheme:
- Wear different shades - Mix & match dark and light shades of the colour of your choice together or mix & match pieces with different undertones. For example I've paired a light pink blazer with a salmon pink blouse. Salmon pink has an undertone of peach to it.
- Play with textures - Mix and match different textures such as ruffles, velvet and knit to allow each piece to stand out. Here I've pair my straight cut blazer with a sheer ruffled blouse. Both the ruffles and the salmon pink allows my blouse to stand out and not blend in or hidden under the blazer.
- Play with patterns & prints - This one is a little more tricky, but it can be applied to both just the top half of your outfit or your entire outfit. One easy thing you do is to mix and match a blazer with loud print/pattern and the blouse/shirt inside with a smaller scaled pattern (i.e. polkadots) and vice versa. Remember, this can be applied to an entire outfit as well if you want to challenge yourself or simply just to have fun picking out a look. Another other thing you can do is to mix and match with completely different the patterns & prints. Since I'm not wearing any patterns or prints here, below are a few examples.
I hope this post gave you some inspirations for your next outfit or for whenever you just want to have some fun with it!
