The Rules Are, There Are No Rules

If you know me at all, then you must know that color will always be a topic of conversation. I bore people day in and out about the importance of color and what works with their skin tone. Again, boring for you but so much fun for me! I am going to let you in on a little secret... although color is very important on top, there are no rules when wearing color as a bottom. Woop Woop!  I love loop holes. Please note, if for some reason you do find a rule, throw it out the window... thanks!

Okay, so lets take a scary color like orange. I personally love orange; it is so vibrant and full of life. Orange also happens to be a good color on my warm skin tone; sorry, not sorry. Unfortunately, cool skin tones tend to look washed out when wearing orange on top. This is just one reason why many people are scared of this color, and I don't blame you. But you don't have to be scared anymore.
Here is just one way to wear it. I paired a fun orange skirt from Zara, pockets included (because who doesn't love pockets??), with a simple white crop top and a turquoise necklace. Just to add a little more flavor, I wore my favorite Stan Smiths. Today was a more casual day, but if I were going to brunch or a daytime event, I would either wear this outfit with nude wedges or a nude pointy toe pump. 

Tip of the Day: Pointy toe pumps make your legs look longer... wedges have the opposite affect. If you need help deciding, feel free to post a comment.

Whatever you do, remember to always have fun in orange!
C'est la vie

  1. OMG thank you so much for this tip. My wardrobe is filled with mostly neutrals..this gives me more confidence to try on a little color at least on the bottom..And I would've never thought to pair a skirt with those shoes..As a mom, I am always trying to find ways to look fun but comfy shoes are a must when you're running around a toddler. I am definitely going to try your color trick with those shoes!!!
