Who doesn’t love Autumn? Halloween, vibrant colors, beautiful trees, fallen leafs, pumpkin spice latte, cosy socks and blankets, warm nights in, the leading up to Chistmas, etc. Isn’t Autumn the best season?! It is probably British’s people favorite one, and for good reasons! Something I love about Autumn is all the gorgeous colors to play with in fashion, my new favorite color combination being yellow and green!
What is yours?!
There are some rather famous color combinations that are deemed impossible by the fashion rules. Red and pink was one of them. Although we now know that those two colors actually go pretty well together and can make up for great outfits! Like yellow and green!
I have to admit something though. Before this photoshoot, I had never worn both colors in an outfit together.
But I think it turned out quite well.
Green and yellow are both typical autumn colors. Along with orange, red, brown and purple. They are warm, vibrant, gorgeous on trees and even more amazing on outfits. Some of them can be styled together super well. So why not yellow and green together?
Because just like red gives pink, yellow gives green. While one is a primary color, the other is a variation of the same primary color. Thus, not deemed complimentary.
There isn’t always the need for a color contrast in fashion. Yes, red and cyan are great together. And so are black and white, yellow and blue or green and pink. Even though a green and yellow color combination does not give a big contrast, it still looks amazing.
I think so at least.
Once you’ve made peace with that, you can start to think of the accessories and how to create that contrast. Or just had some pop of color. A green midi skirt with a mustard chenille jumper can be teamed up with some more autumnal shades. A burgundy bag and tortoiseshell earrings that recall the statement chain of the bag. Its all in the details my friends!
Well, I don’t know about you, but now that I have tried this color combination, I am absolutely loving it! It is absolutely perfect for Autumn, classy and versatile. The outfit can be worn in the office, on a casual day or for drinks out. And that mustard chenille jumper is the comfiest thing ever!
Also, how amazing is that skirt? How gorgeous is the new flower display at Les Senteurs?!
