Focusing on Color

May 2016
May 2016

Hello! Recently, I've been attracted to color as the focal point of my outfits. In the past, I've styled my outfits mainly around various prints and patterns as well as texture. I think that texture will always play a large role in my style choices but I've been relying less and less on prints and patterns in the past few weeks. I used to view color as one of the less important elements of an outfit but now I recognize and appreciate the ability of color to create bold looks. In particular, I've been really drawn to warm colors like the mustard yellow color that I'm wearing above. 

For this look, I styled a mustard yellow, bell-sleeve top with a matching mustard yellow shawl. I also donned a vintage yellow purse and warm-colored neutral platform heels to accentuate the mustard yellow. I shot these photos against a cheery yellow wall to emphasize the colors of this look even further. However, color isn't the only important element of this look. The knit shawl and straw purse both have interesting textures and I highlighted the texture in the look even further by slipping on a pair of lace-trimmed shorts. Accessories perfected this free-spirited look; I slipped on a pair of golden-rimmed sunglasses, a couple golden necklaces and tied a pink ribbon around my neck to capture the choker trend
