If you asked me to define my style, the first thought to pop in my head would be that I like all sorts of colour combinations! And the number one tip I give my friends and followers is to either combine completely opposing tones on the colour wheel, or to combine different hues of an either warm or cool scheme. Today's outfit can be applied to that second option.
I suppose this outfit could be considered less of a super bold fashion statement, and more appealing to the general population out there. Considering blue, white, green and black are colours that one will find more frequently within their closet, and be open to wearing with more confidence as well. So nothing highly bold, flashy or neon to be spotted here. I have however, noticed how many individuals can be somewhat intimidated by the pairing of these two. But my mission here is to help and provide inspiration and confidence for you to try combining some of these colours in ways you never thought. Don't forget, that future showstopping outfit might already be hanging in your closet 😉
Blue and green are on the same side of the colour wheel, so in my opinion it would be accurate to refer to them as "cousins" , well, for the lack of a better term.
With them being in the same family, yes, they work well together, but it is important to bring in a contrasting colour into the mix. I chose white, as you can see, with a tiny hint of black in my tweed ballerinas and camellia detail on the collar.
Don't ask me to go to detail with the grey bag 🙈 It just seemed like a proper fit at the moment, and I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Fashion tip # 1 : Go with your gut. Do what feels right.
I bought this organza blue blouse and emerald green tweed blazer together at Zara earlier this summer, which was what originally gave me the idea for the outfit. As if it were meant to be.
In terms of the bag, I had purchased it earlier this year when seeking for a new satchel style handbag in grey. I wasn't looking to make a big luxury purchase, but still wanted something with that feel to it. This is a question I often get asked from some of my readers, being about not always being able to afford high-end designer handbags, and to help find a few just-as-good alternatives.
In this case, I'd normally turn to my beloved Aldo or Zara for sure. Additionally, I recently found Jessica Buurman, a high street online store with some great quality pieces inspired by many classic designer styles.
Fashion tip # 2 : Don't ever purchase fake copies.
I found when putting together this outfit, it would certainly be favourable for a casual weekend get-together with friends or even a business scene. I admit the white makes it a bit too casual for an everyday office attire, but it could very well work brilliantly for a daytime lunch meeting or a job interview. It also depends on a few other factors such as, your actual line of work, where you live, and the season.
