Dance around a bold color as your centerpiece and work miracles.
Today we are going to let you in on a little sartorial secret. Those days when your imagination simply escapes you, or the clock ticks in a strange, hectic mode, those are the days for you to fall back on this simple, easy, elegant outfit. It doesn’t need time, matching or styling. If you pay attention now and learn the basics, you’re ok.
• First things first: Choose a piece as your protagonist. Here we have selected the trousers. For you it can also be anything else, say the jacket or the sweater.
• Your protagonist needs to have a bold, assertive color, one that will dominate the whole outfit. Dark red is one of this season’s faves, and it is slowly becoming one of ours, as well…
• Building around your centerpiece is fairly easy. Choose one more color to dress the rest of the style, like we did with this dark gray jumper and wool overcoat. Gray and red look fantastic together, by the way, don’t they?
• After you have almost completed the look, think of a small detail that is going to take it to another level. For us here it was this baby blue cotton shirt, barely visible but strongly appreciable.
• So, remember the three color rule we have talked about so much and note in your head that if one of them is so big that it becomes your protagonist, the third one is going to just play the role of the interesting outsider that only comes in at the end, to twist everything around!
