Fall Winter Fashion Formula #3: The Power of Color

Omiru Fall Winter Capsule Wardrobe: #3
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: sometimes all you need is a splash of color.  You don’t have to have a technicolor closet to have some fun with color.  Against a backdrop of neutrals, it’s amazing what a small dose of color can do.  Here’s a fashion formula that shows you how to dip your toes into the world of color:

1. Start with a neutral foundation.  Here, we paired a crisp white tuxedo shirt with a pair of cuffed grey pants.
2. Layer on some more neutrals: a shawl collar sweater vest in taupe and a black sailor style peacoat.  Note how the oversized buttons on the sweatervest echo those on the peacoat.
3. Accessorize! A black and grey checkered scarf finds itself at home with the neutral palette of the outfit, but a pair of cherry red slingback heels gives these neutrals a kick in the pants.  The result? A sophisticated outfit that gives a nod to your playful side.

Metallic Flower Sandals

Metallic Flower Sandals

These metallic sandals are the perfect foil to a pretty day dress, but they’re also cool enough to glam up jeans and a tee.

$39.50 at Gap.
