Summer has finally sprung in San Francisco and certain neighborhoods in the city look like a flower oasis with bougainvilleas blanketing the walls of cute little houses. I love incorporating color into my outfits and try to stay away from black looks-especially in the spring/summer months.
When you think of a winter color palette, the first thing that comes to mind is probably dark or neutral colors. But this winter, I decided I want to add some more color! Red has been the color I’ve been leaning towards all season to complete my looks.
I didn’t know what to wear this morning but I knew I wanted something with a little bit of color. I had just gotten these really cool Topshop jeans embellished with sparkling rhinestones so I wanted to create an outfit with the jeans. I ended up putting together this outfit which was totally giving me smurf vibes!
I was in Palm Springs last weekend for a horse competition in the Coachella Valley. My mother flew down to LA and we took an Uber together from LA to Palm Springs Friday morning.
Not as bright as red or as dull as brown, oxblood is that dark, rich, brownish, redish hue that actually references to the color of oxygenated blood…I know..gross.. :/ But, despite this fact, I still find this color to be the new neutral for winter. And because I love red so much, oxblood has naturally become one of my go to colors for the season. It’s moody, but sophisticated and makes almost anything look edgy and luxe!
Colorblocking is such an easy trend-just simply throw on colorful separates. But the tricky part is knowing which colors go well together and which ones simply clash. For me, it’s more like a try an error. But I typically find pairing neutral/classic tones like black, white, beige, navy with a bright pop of color to be the best combination. Because it’s winter, I suggest opting for more muted tones of navy, grey, neutrals and oxblood shades to pair with a statement coat, trousers, or shoes! This trio of colors: camel, green, and white worked so well together and is perfect for winter!
