It’s no secret that color is my secret weapon when styling outfits. I love to mix & match to create unexpected combinations. It allows for the simplest of pieces that when combined, look more polished and chic then they do on their own. Colorblocking is a tried and true method to achieving this because it allows you to combine two completely different shades. However, it doesn’t always have to be opposite colors. Sometimes, it can actually be the same color, just blending different hues.
This look is a perfect example of that. Green is the foundation however, with the top being lime green and the skirt being an olive tone, it showcases the differences even within the same primary color. There are endless options when it comes to color and the ways in which you decide to wear them. This same method can translate to really any shade under the sun. And as you will see from the links below, this outfit is very affordable yet still stylish. It’s the best of both worlds!

Thanks for writing this post, Kristine. I have also been experimenting with color mix and matching lately. I have been using resources such as design-seeds.com as color inspiration. By the way, I love the skirt. I just love the ruffle and shape of the skirt. It’s just so cute!
Thanks so much Gigi!
Genius! Kristine every week you keep surpassing the previous week. The skirt is all shades of beautiful.
