One colour.

Wednesday, 27 May 2015









Silde split top: Warehouse. Trousers: New Look - Old (Similar). Necklace: Zara - Old (Similar). Patent shoes - Old (Similar). 

I'm all about dressing in one colour.
Head to toe, including matching lipstick and all.

I would say, that if you're going to rock one colour and one colour only, there are a few rules that  will help make the outfit work:

-Vary textures (Knits, linen, leather, silk.. The options are endless),
-Use different shades of one colour, such as burgundy, red, oxblood etc,
and last, but by no means least,
-Break up bright colours with complimentary accessories.

And now you're ready!

Would you rock the one colour look?
