FACT: I have only recently been opened up to mixing colors.
Excluding my 90's-era elementary-aged "fashion" (I rocked the oversized sweatshirt like there was no tomorrow), I've stayed within normal color parameters. I knew what matched and what didn't, and stayed far away from the didn't. Black and brown, mixing bright colors, even introducing a new color into an outfit: no. no. no.
Honestly, it was Fall Fashion Week that really helped me explore new fashion choices. The women who participated were so encouraging, supportive and creative that I felt inspired to make new fashion choices, one of them being colors.
Skirt: Forever 21
Boots: Merrell, from REI
Hat: Gift, from Forever 21
As this outfit shows, I'm still fairly moderate with my color mixing. But only a year or two ago, I would have never thought purple and green would be in my outfit, at the same time!
Have your fashion choices changed in the past few years?
