three colour combos you MUST try asap

Honestly these are two very bold colours – pairing them together is a huge move but I can almost guarantee it’ll pay off.  This combination was seen quite a bit at Coppenhagen fashion week. Prhaps I’m biased as I’m one 60th Danish (aren’t all white Australians?) but the Danes are some of the most forward fashionistas on the planet (um Ganni, Cecilie Bahnsen anyone?).

If you’re a little hesitant – ease into it by pairing navy with a burnt orange.  It’s still a gorgeous combination and you’ll become more comfortable experimenting in no time!

Recently I spent the bulk of my last $10 on an $8 purple turtleneck from a consignment store.  I was left with $2 to purchase dinner (canned chickpeas are my lifesaver) and seemingly nothing to pair my new sweater with.  I tried wearing it with a black skirt but it was too harsh of a juxtaposition.  Following this I thought blue jeans would surely be a match – alas no luck!

It was scrolling through the throes of pinterest, while having my gourmet meal of rice and sweet chilli sauce, that I came across the ultimate combination and my life saver – purple and brown!  Of course, why hadn’t I thought of that before. Now you can all learn from my mistakes and save yourself time & heartache. I’m like a modern day mother Teresa - with very expensive taste and no virginity.

Maybe my admiration for this colour combination stems from intense nostaligia for Pheobe Philo’s CELINE – in particular this outfit from her last season.  Combining pastel yellow and baby pink reminds me of the queen’s rein at my favourite fashion house and feels like a nice way of paying homage.  The fashionable version of wearing black to a funeral.

Coming into summer in the southern hemisphere I look forward to sporting these fleshy colours at the beach and outdoors instead of actual very pale body.  I look so much like a piggy that there’s very little difference between pastel pink and my natural skin tone anyway.  Surely no one will notice!
