I'm all for wardrobe rules. I have a very long unwritten list of rules that I shop and dress by - No shoes with ankle straps, No trousers, Always a cinched waist but never a drop waist and Coco's words of wisdom are ever present, too. One of my favourites is "When accessorizing always take off the last thing you put on". And that's only the beginning of the list.
However, I tend to go against classic colour combination faux pas. I'm fully aware that red and green should never be seen but some crazy people (my GBF included) think that black and navy are a No-No. How could I possibly live without them? They are my go-to combination! I feel pretty safe wearing black, grey and blue but adding in brown isn't so easy. I wanted to balance out the brown in the necklace and in the elbow patches of this sweater, they are under there I promise. I was a bit unsure but I always admire Amy's use of grey tights with brown loafers so referred back to my favourite colour combination from last summer.
So here I am, breaking all the rules. I have black,navy, grey and brown all in the same outfit and -Shock-Horror!!- I think it looks alright. Else I wouldn't have worn it.
What do you think? What colours do you love to wear or hate to mix?
