Some garments remind you of how bad you are in the world. This look did that for me. For starters, this color blocking is the diagram for a color theory class, honey. I can hear the teacher saying; “Turn to chapter 5 in your text. The lesson is on, how to color block like, SoShenell!”
As far as color, it is all about showcasing the primaries. Yes, red and blue are primary colors that can be perfectly married in an outfit. Although, visually, they graciously fight for attention. I mean, do you blame them, one is cold and the other is hot, but don’t forget opposites attract. I have this awkward obsession with the gravitational pull of two contrasting entities; Twilight’s Bella and Edward, light and dark of an Aurora Borealis, the battle between love and war, then there’s the junction of a river and waterfall. Take into consideration my examples, these concepts evoke a feeling rather than a theory or rules of color. Like my scenarios, the primary colors marrying are intense. There’s an infinite parlaying with, which is dominant and which is recessive. The complex interaction between the two colors forces them to release their vibrancy equally-depending on the hues you’re pairing.
After styling this look, I did get a slight drift of a Lone Ranger at a saloon. Perhaps it’s the hat, jeans, boots, and this coat sashaying across my shoulders. I don’t know. What I do know is, this ensemble is, casual, trendy, chic, Midwestern, and not too fancy, but definitely nothing to be played with!
