Who What Wear - Pantone colour mix

This week I have reconnected with my sense of playfulness. I have been experimenting with my favourite colour-mix, with some calling it dramatic. Here’s hoping I can inspire you to experiment too.

This attention grabbing colour combo is cherry red paired with little boy blue. First Lady Melania Trump wore a baby blue Ralph Lauren ensemble to her husband’s inauguration in January 2017, but the clear blue sky-inspired tone has continued to be prevalent. 

I personally love the juxtaposition created by the strong and heated colour red, compared to the calm and cooling feeling that the blue evokes. I’m also no stranger to this combo wearing it in October for a colour block post and investing in a few pieces a couple of years ago because let’s be honest, I can’t resist the allure of red!

|| LOOK ONE ||

For the faint hearted wanting to test the waters a simple way to work this trend into your wardrobe is adding  an accessory in the contrasting colour.  For me this is looks like a tailored red jumpsuit worn my favourite earrings from Sportsgirl.

The next look I created in this palette from items in my wardrobe is a modern take of Marlyn Munro. There is something about a pleated flowy skirt that makes me feel uber feminine. 

However, sticking true to my style, I added my custom made snakeskin heels with red accents and a vintage printed belt for a bit of edge.

For my third look I introduced a print to this combo. I purchased this pencil skirt from H&M years ago as the punchy print reminded me Kenzo and Moschino. 

I’ve worn it with a cherry red jumper that has some extra detail on the back and silver and white accessories. If you wanted to pull it back for a more subtle look I’d recommend wearing a print like this with white instead. Navy also works incredibly well too.

Finally my last look it the most playful. You would catch me wearing this out for a dance with my girls on a night I am feeling super confident. It’s a sports luxe look utilizing a classic cut vest that I picked up on my travels to the states four years ago. I'm sure there is a ‘stylist’ rule about wearing a trend a second time around, but I’m choosing to ignore it! These 90s inspired snap button trackies are too much fun.
