Light Layers

As much as my loyal love for all-black outfits, one cannot deny that combination of light colors can be so refreshing and fun to style. Due to the low color saturation, layering effect can be achieved easily without looking OverTheTop or redundant, compared to darker colors. Admittedly, more consideration is needed for lighter looks but who’s to say it’s not worth it?

One thing to note when you are trying to score a monochromatic look – variation of textures. It’s especially visible when wearing all-black since there is only one black in the world. But let’s not get carried away just because the light colors have more variations, you’ll still need to mix different textures in an outfit if you want that effortless chic.

I’m wearing a chiffon blouse, a wool sleeveless coat and an asymmetrical tweed skirt, to make sure that I have a monochromatic but not monotone look. The matching handbag and lipstick color also constitutes a sweet little secret to keep for myself. Girls need that to feel playful and happy inside out, no matter if others can spot it or not, don’t we?

一身黑是我的真爱没错,可是浅色搭配更能够让人耳目一新。因为色彩饱和度很低,所以使用不同的浅色更容易叠穿出效果,看上去也不会觉得很刻意或是累赘。确实,想要把一身浅色穿的好看要花费多一点心思,但是那种轻盈感与新鲜感所带来的喜悦是所谓的安全色系无法比拟的哦!

全身搭配同一/类似色系要注意的重要一点就是材质上的不同。全黑搭配中尤其明显,因为黑色无分色相、明度或饱和度,简言之就是世上只有一种黑色。但不要因为这样就觉得因为浅色有很多个变种,就无需注意材质的混搭。这个是effortless chic的必需要素哦!

今天的搭配中用了一件雪纺衬衫、羊毛无袖外套和花呢不对称半裙,达成单色而不单调的整体风格。至于matchy matchy的唇膏跟手袋颜色,就是我为自己准备的甜蜜小心思啦,不管别人是否注意得到,这些小细节都会让我无比开心,你get到我了吗?
