Perfect Pastel Pairing


Spreading Autumnal Sparkles

~ Style Notes ~

Wearing a ‘column’ of one colour can really lengthen the frame and elongate the body. I love doing this - and it’s important to remember that not every colour has to match exactly. In fact, it’s more interesting if they don’t match! Every piece I’m wearing was purchased at entirely different times. Just be sure that they’re in the same tonal family - ie if there’s a warmth to the colour you’re matching, look for similar warmth in the pieces you put together. Likewise, try to identify if colours are white and ‘milky’, or bright and ‘juicy’. Then try to pair like with like.
