Hi! Someone made a great point in Friday’s comments, that I want to address. They pointed out that there are a LOT more ways to mix a neutral and an accent color than just “column of neutral + accent cardigan + accent scarf and shoes.”
Of COURSE there are! But I’ve tried to keep these outfits as similar as possible, with the only variable in the accent color, so we can focus on the effect of the color and not be distracted by things like necklines and drapes and lengths and all of the other dozens of variables in clothing.
I’m always more than happy to approach these projects from another direction – I think often of the idea of a “suit” – a matching jacket or cardigan with pants or skirt, and then an accent blouse, sweater, or other top.
And then there’s the matching 2 pieces above the waist – a twinset of sorts – with neutral pants. SO. MANY. POSSIBILITIES.
Let me know what interests you…
And now, let’s finish off our study of the navy column with some bright colors, and some other colors that I ran into in the course of my browsing.
I’m not daft about these loafers, because I always prefer a thinner sole and a more graceful profile, but these are the shoes that are EVERYWHERE right now…
Oh my! If you live in Chicago, and have to do something Chicago Bears related, this is a low-key way to participate. Buying specific clothes, scarves, and EARRINGS that are sports-themed isn’t a good use of money for most of us.
I love this green, and the texture of the cardigan, and the snappy gold buttons…
This is such a lovely, rich color. Not red, not rust – maybe russet?
Yes, it’s another green. I chose to include this cardigan because so many people seem to be looking for a deep forest green. This cardigan, with the pretty pointelle sleeves, caught my eye…
I’m not necessarily sure that all of us would want to wear ALL of these accessories. Unless we decided that we DID want to… Some days you’re bold, some days you aren’t!
Peacock! Or you may call it teal. Maybe petrol. At any rate, when I spotted THIS cardigan, I knew I would share it with you!
For our very last navy outfit (for now), I had to share this lovely, bright and eye-catching cardigan. It’s certainly not something that just anybody would want to wear, but on the right woman, this would be stunning!
And yes, those loafers HAD to show up again…
Wednesday, you get to see the August Bracelet! It’s lovely…
