Pastels and Gold

Wearing a monotone outfit may not appeal to many people. Moreover, it may also end up a little tricky to wear and sometimes boring to sport too.

I, for one, love pairing two similar toned/printed pieces together; be it, a black on black outfit or all an white theme, monotone sort of always kept me intrigued! While wearing an entire similar printed separates could look overwhelming, one always has to be careful about breaking the same colour / tone to strike the right balance. Florals or pastels when done subtly, bring the right contrast to your all white outfit. The key lies in accessorizing the look. You may wear black on black with a pair of black shoes and bring contrast through bright lips or a tan bag. However, when you are wearing prints all over, one should refrain from accessorizing too much as it might look overwhelming.

Herein, I’m wearing a layered mint green crop top and palazzos from Ajio. This season is all about wearing flowy and fluid fabrics and this outfit grabbed my attention on the very first look itself. The pastel colour might just portray a day look, but you could very well embrace this outfit for a dinner as well. I accessorized the whole look using gold jewellery pieces as they sit really pretty against the pastel green palette of the outfit. I didn’t want to go overboard with jewellery, so stuck to one statement necklace (Stylefiesta) and went on to add a gold ring to enhance the gold accents a little further. At this point of time, the shoes needed to be of a neutral shade and hence, I opted for this taupe/ off white sandals from Koovs, which add to the elegance of the whole look. The only other pop of colour came via my orange lips. I did bright lips so as to minimise the chances of being washed out due to the colour palette.
