Blue, White & Stripes


I am really beginning to have an obsession with wearing different shades of the same colour in my outfits, and this one is no exception. I loved mixing and matching the different shades of white and blue in this outfit, bringing out the navy blue stripes in this Cooper Street blazer with these navy blue Wittner boots, and adding turquoise jewellery to bring in a different dimension of blue. Although I love colour-blocking outfits with clashing colours such as bright pink against a bright orange or blue, I also think you can come up with amazing outfits just with playing around with different shades of the main colour that you’re wearing.
