For my first post I thought I would keep it simple and light with denim. It’s one of my favourite materials in rl and sl, but living in a big city with all the travelling and hectic life style, it’s not always practical to step away from dark shades to light colours. Mix and matching denim can sometimes be tricky if your items are from various stores with different wash effects.
STYLE TIPS: Mix and match colours that are from similar shade variants. When mixing different denims from different store brands, match items with high contrasting colours.
I recently posted “Judge” that contained some of the same items I wore to this year’ MAD Agency Christmas Ball shown here in this post. I either edited the pieces by changing the color or added parts from other outfits or simply wore a different color. I wanted to show how you could use the same items in an outfit and can change them around to create a completely different look. I hope that this clearly shows how you can create your own look for different occasions using the same items without having to purchase a whole new outfit.
Color coordinating your pieces. If you start with white, black, or gray, stick to those colors and maybe add one colorful item. These new pants from K!ING come with various color options of belt and headphones including: shades of green, yellow, orange, white, black, red, pink, blue, and purple. They also include a shorts option and belt with and without headphones and an iPhone. By selecting items with many options, you can choose the ones that best fit your needs.
In truth, color is severely lacking in many wardrobes, and it’s such a shame. Wearing color can do amazing things for your skin tone, hair color, and overall appearance. While basic black will forever be a wardrobe staple, adding in a few more shades can spice up your wardrobe and add interest to your look.
Never go wrong with choosing classic pieces that you can match with others to create your look.
