The red in this is actually a hair closer to rust, but since we’re moving toward warmer weather here, and rust is IMPOSSIBLE to find, I’m working with a more poppy red. These accent colors don’t have to be a flawless match to the color in the scarf, nor to each other. Unless you plan to wear pieces together, you needn’t be madly rigorous in making the colors perfect in a capsule wardrobe.
Of course, when building around a single accessory, 1 outfit at a time is a good approach:
I love to see the accessories all together! Again, it’s doubtful that you would purchase new shoes each month, but showing all of these together gives you a clear image of what the overall, desired “shoe effect” is. And those scarves… sigh… I love me a good scarf!
I hope this is helpful to my friend with the dilemma, and to everyone looking for a fresh idea or two!
