Color Couples || Black, White, & Pink

New Yorkers are tough folk, nothing fazes them. However, there is something that can strike fear in the hearts of many a hardened city dweller... COLOR.

Wearing color can seem daunting to a black uniform dresser. Responses I have heard from clients afraid of adding color to their wardrobes range from, "But everything goes together when it's all neutrals and black!" to "I'm just not used to color. I feel like myself in black." Baby steps my dears. Touches of color in an otherwise neutral outfit can help clients (or you!) step out of their comfort zone and into more varied clothing options.

 

A color combination I love that still incorporates that safety hue (black) is black, white, and pale pink. If you're not yet ready to commit to a whole garment in a shade that's new to you, accessories are an easy way to add color to a look. This necklace by Marchesa features blush roses and pink glass. I paired it with an off the shoulder top by Milly that makes a statement with graphic black and white stripes. Light-wash denim is essentially a neutral while being a summery jean option for warmer weather. And, with a flared pant leg that hits the floor, I've just added inches to my frame not to mention visual interest. This is the perfect look for clients who like to flaunt their legs but feel more comfortable in flowy tops that don't cling to their midsection.  Try this outfit for a summer night out or bring it into fall with a bootie and cropped moto jacket.
