A week ago I went to Renner and fell in love with this pleated green midi skirt. There are so many positive points about this piece, I love the color, the pleated, the fabric. The length is almost perfect, because as I am short I will need to take a few adjustments to look better on me.
But while I was in the dressing room, I was thinking about which pieces I would match with the skirt. Although I find the color very beautiful, I confess that I was in doubt about the possibilities. The colour is totally out of my usual, nothing to do with black, white and gray, and also my usual color chart with earthy tones, red, rosy … I realized that I have just a few green pieces, it’s kinda like a new colour for me.
That’s why I got home and went to set up some options, a different color makes us think differently and force ourselves to be a little more creative when it comes to putting the pieces together. And that’s great. It’s good to get out of our comfort zone!
So I made 3 different options with the same skirt. I kept the gray tshirt and changed only the coordination of colors and accessories. Ever thought of using green in a monochrome look? And with a leopard print? Maybe with a purple jacket?
My first idea was to try a monochrome look. The color is totally out of the obvious and the result can be super cool.
I discovered that I do not have many pieces in shades of green, and they are few, but good. Look at that green velvet jacket! Besides the fabric being among the trends of the moment, I really like this modeling with the pockets. I decided to wear it with the pleated skirt in an attempt to look monochromatic and I liked the result. I matched it with the Esdra military green scarpin too. What about it?
My second option was to match it with a piece also in a darker tone, just like the skirt. If I said that I wore the green skirt with a purple jacket without showing you the picture, it might sound a little bit weird, right? At first green and purple may not sound like the best combination.
It turns out that both colors appear in darker tones in the pieces and this brings a certain harmony. It does not always work, but try to coordinate very different colors that share that thing with lighter or darker tones. You may discover some awesome colour coordinations.
I loved thsis outfit, because it’s completely different. The gray tshirt works as a neutral base, so I chose the color also for the accessories like the bag and the sneakers.
Finally, the classic leopard print! All colors work well with this print, have you noticed? There are variations of this print and many options of background colors and such, but in general I have not yet seen a color that does not look nice with it.
Once again the gray tshirt is a neutral base that does not break the harmony of the other pieces. I chose an all printed leopard jacket, but if you’re not a big fan of the print you can also try with a printed clutch.
In this case I chose accessories in neutral colors, but nothing perfectly coordinated. Notice that the belt is black, the bag is gray, and the heels are brown. But all these colors also appear in the other pieces, so it works well.
And since I could not decide my favourite outfit wearing the green skirt, I want to hear from you, which look is better? Any favourite?
