Chartreuse: the perfect shade of yellow mixed with a hint of green! I’ve been a fan for decades. In fact, my childhood bedroom is still chartreuse. I find it to be a happy hue. What is not to like about that?! As a lover of color, one of my favorite things to do is mix unexpected colors together.
I cannot paint a pretty picture with a brush, but I can create a pretty cool outfit mixing contrasting colors. Tip: consider the family, not the hue. Do not waste time fixating on the “perfect” shade of red, or the “right” shade of green. Remember, if it’s in the same color family, the colors are complimentary. In this case, vermilion and chartreuse. Commonly known as red and green, no one questions whether or not Christmas colors! Catch my drift? Hopefully photos do this chartreuse top justice. I am not sure what I love more: the bubble sleeves or the floral embroidery. Regardless, this stunner is under $40 and will not last very long.
Colored denim > than blue denim. Ok fine, maybe that is a little bit aggresive. But I think we can all agree that a bright pair of jeans will have more heads turnin’ than a traditional pair of dungarees! These flame red hot pants are only $60 and will effortlessly “spice” up your wardrobe. Aside from their vibrant flair, they have proven to be quite versatile. If you follow me on Instagram, than you may recall when I wore them with a white sweater and brocade slides. Fast forward a couple of weeks and here I am styling them with a chartreuse top. Score! Now the looks are all there, but how do they fit? Like a dream…if you’re petite like me. It’s a rare occasion that I buy jeans without making a trip to the tailor. These pants are ankle length…right out of the box. I’m also impressed with the stretch factor. I love mom jeans, but homegirl has muscular thighs. The more stretch the better.
