I don’t like purple. I don’t like yellow either. I never thought I would say this, but I think purple and yellow together are rather cool. In small doses. Not too often. You also need to tread very carefully, one small mistake and you look terrible rather than chic!
This is the pic which made me change my mind:
I am not sure about the camisole, it looks a little too sexy for my liking. Here’s at random some clothes and accessories in the two colours:
And here are a few ideas of how to put them together:
I would wear purple for the top, just because yellow near your face is way too difficult. This way, it doesn’t matter whether your blond or dark haired and whether you have a sun tan (which, btw, if it’s too dark, isn’t nice either with yellow). Another matter is naturally dark skin, which tends to look fabulous whenever. Having said that, I’d still put purple at the top).
I never thought I would fancy a pair of light coloured shoes but, having seen these cute Zara Derby cream ones, I think I am going to have them!!
The price is right, I can just wear them for a season or two, without feeling guilty. They have such a short season, maybe a couple of months and they will be too heavy to wear, not much point in spending a lot.
I can already see them with this classic pleated navy skirt by Arket:
And you? What have you got your eyes on for the Spring?
There’s just too much out there, far too much. There’s plain but classy, there’s colour, there’s kitch… I am just going to post some clothes and accessories at random. I only want to point out, one doesn’t need to be half naked to be dressed for a party and there are plenty of things for more “seasoned” women. I could not go through all the sites I have saved, in order to find the best options, the following are merely the tip of the iceberg…
Among others, I went onto Boden’s site: I had forgotten how cute their party footwear was! Why not go for fancy shoes/sandals on a plainer outfit? Or the opposite of course, or even the “full works” look? Careful though, in this case, it does need to be amazing!! I especially like the idea of a suit, jacket and trousers in the same garish fabric, or bright shoes, or both!
