Tonal Attire

Sep 10, 2018

Mother Nature can often teach us very well when it comes to which colors work well together, and staying in the family of one hue is a smart, chic and simple sartorial choice. 

To see an outfit pulled together with rose and blush hues as shown above or various shades of navy (just below), it initially looks quite complex, and while it can be, the trick to simplify curating an outfit with familial tones is to pair different textures as well. 

Each of the outfits shown here today demonstrate this differentiating texture well. And the good news it, it need not be a drastic difference in texture – i.e. an extra fine knit cashmere turtleneck sweater paired with sturdy wool pants (third image). When the different shades are included, the textures look more different than they actually are. 

Today or sometime this week, perhaps go through your closet (and if you’re like me, you have a dominant color in your closet – mine is navy), examine if you have more outfits than you had thought originally, simply by bringing two seemingly unmatching shades together as you accentuate their slight difference and highlight a very svelte look.

  1. I would love to get more wear out of my rose-colored jeans which I generally put away until spring. Perhaps this is the answer. Thanks!
