This or that?

Sometimes I come up with different variations of outfits, and while most of the time I typically gravitate towards one more than the other, sometimes I find myself perched a top a fence and can’t decide which one is the winner.  Hence was the case a few days ago when I was getting ready for work. Because I work for Macy’s, I have to wear all black when I visit my stores, which is typically two days a week. So when I am in my office (we do have a business casual dress code), I try to wear color as much as I possibly can.

That said, let me preface by saying that if you take one thing away from this blog today, let it be the fact that turquoise and coral are ALWAYS a winning combination.  Always.  The question I had however, is because the two colors are so saturated and warm (and perfect together), would it be possible to add another hue to this combo?  And while I might still be on the fence as to the definite answer to this question, I am kind of thinking that the answer just might be yes.  So after trying out a very safe coral, turquoise, and black combo, I decided to get a little wild and try my turquoise and coral back to…RED!!

Silk Blouse:  Forever21

Turquoise Cardi:  H

Black Jeans:  Gap Always Skinny

Red Jeans:  American Eagle

Shoes:  Steve Madden c/o o.co outlet

Watch:  Michael Kors c/o Nordstrom Rack

Bracelets:  Macy’s, World Market

Ring:  Deco Fox (etsy)

Turquoise Necklace:  BasiltheCat (etsy)

Cateye Sunglasses:  Guess c/o TJMaxx (recent)

In the end, I went for safe and wore the version with the black pants to work.  BUT, if I were going to try this look again for the weekend, or a night out, I would definitely choose the red.  The more I look at the colors together, the more I like them, and the more I like them, the more I love that I can put so many colors together and be on trend!!!  It ‘s also a great bonus to be able to come up with multiple outfits using essentially the same pieces.  Maybe it really is true that less is more-well at least in an instance like this.  ;)
