I’ve always been a fan of slightly unexpected color combinations, and for some reason when I bought this super basic open back tank from Zara, I knew I wanted to contrast it with something different. It’s so easy to pair neon with neon, or balance it with metallic, but lately I’ve been loving the look of dull neutrals with brights (I sported this concept previously here), or pastels with brights. In this case, I incorporated both, and went one further with a tiny splash of modern leopard print in my shoes…so as not to keep everything too basic.
It was a hot day, and involved running back and forth between two studio lot campuses, being both inside and outside, so layering with the vest was essential. It gets pretty cold inside our buildings, and as we ALL know, this summer/fall has been brutal outdoors as well.
One of my favorite pieces to pair with bright colors is my utility vest, this one being from H&M. It’s pretty much a staple in my wardrobe, and I wear it over everything. Neutrals, brights, ikats, florals, polka dots, crotchet, long sleeves, short sleeves…you name it. The bright lime of this open back top needed a bralette for sure, so I tossed on my trusty black longline bustier from ASOS. I’m extremely lucky to work in an industry where I can literally wear almost anything I want to work! I added the lilac sunglasses to offset the lime, partly because my nails already happened to be painted my most favorite shade for these past few months (Essie in “Playdate”). Then I tossed on my standard layered necklaces, kept my hair product free (hey…it was a work day), and threw on the flats for some added comfort to all of the running around. I ended up really liking the subtle, yet eclectic mix of elements.
