Color Wheel: How To Match Brown With Turquoise

Pairing Brown WIth Turquoise
         I am taking over the color wheel for the next couple of months to show you guys how to pair different colors and how to style them. Today we are pairing brown with turquoise. Turquoise is the color you get when you mix blue and green together. There are different shades of turquoise. For example: we have light turquoise, medium turquoise, Celeste turquoise, dark turquoise, blue turquoise and so on.

 The exact opposite color to brown is blue,which means we can pair any color from the blue family with brown.

Pairing Brown with turquoise:

  1. Turquoise top, two-piece brown suits (pants or skirt) as an accent color for work
  2. Brown dress, turquoise shoes, nice brown clutch purse for date/dinner night
  3. Striped brown/black skirt, turquoise top, black shoes for a casual look
  4. Turquoise skinny jeans/skirt, nice brown cheetah top, black heels, for an  after-five look.
  5. Turquoise gown, brown shoes, brown clutch purse for a wedding, or a more formal event.

Color Wheel: How To Pair Yellow With Brown

             The best way to pair brown with any color is to think of it as either a neutral color, or black because you can pair black with pretty much any other color. I learned at a very young age that there are two things you should never try to discuss; these things are taste and colors. My taste will never be yours and your color preference will never be mine. Pairing colors is all about perceptions. Brown may not be your color at all, but you might consider it if it is paired with a color that compliments it.Mixing yellow with brown

  1. A yellow tank top or blouse under a two-piece suit ( pants or skirt) for work
  2. A yellow dress with brown cardigan and brown shoes  for  a cocktail party
  3. A yellow blouse with brown skinny jeans and flats for a day in the city
  4. A Pair of Yellow shoes, a brown dress, a yellow belt for a dinner night in town
  5. A pair of yellow shorts, brown T-shirts, black and yellow sneakers for a casual look
  6. A brown dress, yellow shoes, a yellow clutch purse for a more formal affair.

Speak your mind.

Would you wear brown with yellow?

Lace shirt / Topshop hot shorts / Visconti & du Réau orange sandals / Kate Spade cross body bag / Vanity Her chain bracelet, $50 / Wallis rope necklace / River Island spike jewelry
     
 About the look:
         The sandals were inspired by Jamaica, but they were made in Italy. They are made of real leather and they have zip closure in the back. They cost over $300. Shorts are always in style during the summer. Green is for the trees. The yellow top was inspired by the sun that’s always shining over this great island. The black cross-body bag, the earrings and the bracelets complete this casual look.

       Would you dare wear green with yellow?

 
 

 

Outfit Ideas: Fashion Inspired By Fast & Furious 6

Outfit Ideas: Fashion inspired by FURIOUS 6T By Alexander Wang / Skinny leg jeans, $38 / Friendship bracelet / Charlotte Russe earrings / Zirconia jewelry / Black military boots 

         Ladies,  You have to see Fast & Furious 6. It is really an action packed movie. It will keep you on the edge of your seats. I paid $23 for me and my husband and I did not regret a penny. All the viewers got so engaged. We clapped. We Cheered. We talked to the actors like black people do:-) You get the idea!
        Now, about the look:
             Letty, the character played by Michelle Rodriguez, is sexy, smart, and she has a little mean street in her. This look was created after seeing her in action. The punk motorcycle military combat boots really suit her because she is a racer. The little bracelet and earrings make her look more feminine. You would have to watch the movie to find out why I chose the cross pendant necklace. I don’t want to spoil it for y’all.
                                 Would you wear this outfit?

Outfit Ideas: Fashion inspired by Rihana (Black Flower Dress With Black Open Toe Boots)

Outfit Ideas: Celebrity inspired look

 

About the look:

       The dress only costs $30.00 at nelly.com. The boots Rihana is wearing cost over $ 1, 000, but I found those at nastygal.com for $98.00. The bag is originally $106, but it’s on sale for $89.00 at yoox.com. I completed the look with a necklace, some bracelets, and a 24 K pair of  gold earrings from macys, which costs around $60.00.  What I love about dresses is that there are so many different ways you can wear them. With this look, for example, you can either wear a cardigan or a denim jacket depending on the occasion.
       I am crazy about the boots. What do you think?
       

Have A Safe Memorial Day Weekend!

Get Memorial Day Beach ReadyHi friends,
        Heading to the beach today?  I don’t know about you, but I am ready to have some fun in the sun. Read my post for a complete list of everything that you need for the beach. My sister had this crazy idea about having a BBQ by the great Acworth lake today. The idea is crazy because I don’t think there will be a grill left for us to cook for this large family of ours. We will either grill at my house or go to the movies, which means we will still have to grill on Monday if we don’t grill today. I know we will have fun either way. I’ll be posting pictures. Yey!
Anyway! Remember to drive safely, pack all your beach essentials, and do not overeat. Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend!
