The olive accent keeps re-appearing! I really like using it as a secondary neutral with navy – it warms it up and gives it a rich glow. And of course, grey and navy were born to go together…And I must share something sort of inexplicable that I keep running into: there are MEN’S scarves, and WOMEN’S scarves. Why, in all the worlds, would this be? But please be advised – if you’re looking for a scarf in a plaid, paisley, or timeless menswear pattern, look in the men’s department. They are usually less expensive too, which REALLY hacks me off…. sigh…
You knew there would, eventually, be a red vest in here somewhere, right?
Another tip for anyone trying to replicate these ideas: sometimes, you are just NOT going to find everything in the same colors, or colors close enough to wear together. Don’t force it – that will just end up looking wrong. I sort of knew all along that I had very little chance of finding purple boots or shoes of any sort that would work with this vest. But one can ALWAYS revert back to the core neutral – these waterproof navy boots aren’t a compromise in any way. And the gloves turned out the same way; navy were by far the most attractive choice.
Never settle for 2nd best….
The muted colors were such fun – the maroon works beautifully here, too! And I couldn’t resist that fuzzy vest… And note, both of these scarves are for men. Just bizarre, that…
I was able to keep the off-white accent as one of the “soft” accents, with just a chance of scarf. That is a color that will probably go with any neutral you can imagine, I suspect.
And I loved the idea of mixing shades of blue. I don’t see people do it very often, and it looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself!
Tomorrow, olive green is the neutral color! THAT will keep me busy…
