If I were to advise you, sight unseen, to try an accent color, this would be the one! It’s not TOO bright, it goes well with everything, and it flatters most people. Plus it’s pretty readily available in all kinds of garments and accessories – what’s not to love!
But I struggled to find a “nice enough for you” pair of shoes in this color, so I’m opting to include a clutch bag. When you think about it, a clutch or other small bag in an accent color adds some color to your outfit without being worn near your face, and won’t break the bank. If you want to retire the accent color after a season or two, you just pack your accent pieces away for a few seasons… A clutch, wallet, or cross-body bag isn’t going to go out of style!
Olive is always a challenge to work with (for me!), but I think that these balanced out nicely…
Silver and turquoise jewelry feels just right here…
The intensity of these two colors is very similar, and they’re somewhat opposite of each other on the color wheel – two factors that help them work really well together!
Mixed shades of blue always appeal to me:
I love turquoise with brown! And if you haven’t taken a closer look at this scarf, I encourage you to do so – it’s just amazing… Completely not my colors, but if I wore brown, I’d be painfully tempted…
When I chose pieces to show with black, I considered if I would wear the item in question. I own these 3 pieces in black, as well as the black boots, so the black ensembles are always my very personal favorites. While I don’t own any turquoise, seeing all of this together could turn my head! (especially that scarf… I LOVE scarves…)
