Matchy Matchy

This is a look I recently put together for a video I did for the #StyledByLumia campaign. (You can check out the video here.)

The outfit was inspired by one of the color menu options the phone offers — red. As I was styling this look, I wasn’t sure how I felt about how well it matched. I’m all for coordinating, but I think if you’re wearing too much of one color you can start to look like a cartoon character rather than a well dressed lady.

But the longer I wore these pieces together, the more I really liked this look! I think the thing it has going for it are the basic pieces I started the look with — simple skinny jeans and a gray sleeveless turtleneck.

Although I’m working with almost identical shades of bold red, they vary in texture; and because the shoes have interesting cut outs, my pale skin helps to offset the boldness of the shoe.

Maybe I should look to technology for outfit inspiration more often!
