This outfit is about:
♦ balanced proportion
♦ a pleasing color combination.
Even though simplicity and proportion are important (I will cover these topics in the next posts), this time I want to discuss colors.
When I chose this white skirt, I wanted to combine it with something unpredictable color-wise. So, I put a mint sweater and a white skirt together and it came out looking kind of syrupy. Then I decided to downplay it with a few brown shades. Little brown accents such as a string of beads, a simple vintage little bag, a pair of subtle flats and sunglasses helped to unify the look.
Thus, a simple cut mint sweater + white denim midi skirt + brown shades accessories=harmonious and well balanced combo.
The outfit turned out pretty romantic and very comfortable.
Why do I recommend a knee-length or below-knee white skirt?
- A white skirt will serve as a base for unlimited outfit and color combinations, it’s a universal piece that should join your wardrobe.
- Knee length skirts are flattering for all body types and showcase your legs in the best light.
