Pairing a warm color like a mustard skirt with neutral or cool tones is a perfect way to balance an outfit. Today’s mustard skirt and classic black is one of the easiest looks to pull off.
First, in the past I have done 2 blog posts on clothing color palettes. I have talked about how pairing colors in outfits together and mix and matching them is like playing with an eye shadow palatte. Read both style guides here and here. Today, I am talking about mixing a warm color with a neutral color. Black is neutral. It is not really considered a cool or warm tone. It is neutral. Black goes with anything. The mustard skirt I am wearing is the statement piece so I wanted to add something neutral.
Next, the black blouse is such an elegance style. It also has a certain dazzle to it without being overdone. The black blouse is also the perfect length to fit just over the mustard skirt. Also the mustard skirt is called a mini skirt on the website so I ordered both my normal size and a size up. Looks are deceiving because it fits true to size. It was not short on me at all. I have a very long torso so I tend to pull my skirts higher but it did not fit like a mini skirt. It was not tight and also not clingy. Also this skirt is on sale for $36 as of posting time lol.
Finally, the accessories are neutral with the black tights and the black patent leather pumps. That is a great combo especially since it is still winter season so I kept my legs warm. The stunning messenger handbag is my current go to bag. It is quite the investment but you really can wear it with any outfit. Also my sunglasses have been featured here. They were really popular with my last post I featured them in here.
Lastly I wanted to share a little Monday Motivation inspired by this look. “Elegance is the only beauty that never fades” (Audrey Hepburn). Ladies hold yourself in the highest value and respect because being classy is a gorgeous thing to be.
