some more that i love..

yellow or mustard with grey..
grey / navy..
blue / grey / black..

whats interesting is that i have almost no bright colour in my wardrobe..
i wear mostly earthy tones..i think because they are most flattering to my dark hair and olive skin..
i am really drawn to the bright colours in pictures..but i dont tend to buy any..
ive never really noticed that until now..

i have one coral coloured cardigan..
and i love to wear it with white / navy / grey..
but i cant handle any more colour than that..

i wear mostly grey, white, black, beige, blues and olive greens i think..

sari gueron


sari gueron


see by chloe


sportmax


sportmax


ter et bantine


YSL


sportmax had one of the best colour palettes this season imo..
almost every look has me salivating...they are so good they look edible..

hanne you seem to be quite drawn to pinks / purples no?..
do you wear a lot of them?...if i remember correctly you have fair colouring....so i'm sure they look lovely with your hair and skin tone..
pink doesnt look very good on me i dont think.... purple looks better....come to think of it i have a pale purple tshirt that looks quite good, and a deep purple dress which i love (especially with silver)...

ooh that reminds me... purple / silver is beautiful when done right..
does anyone have examples of that?...

I think I pulled a lot of purples from my folder because I've rediscovered purple.. it's been banned (wrongly) for some time..
And yes pink suits me.. I'm a 'pink lady' *Grease Music starts to play* I try to stay away from obnoxious pink (candy/neon/hot pink only take up minial space in my closet) but I do own a disproportionate amount of powder pink/oyster pink/baby pink

love the pictures posted here, it definitely makes me want to incorporate more color into my wardrobe!

I love many of the combos mentioned here: blue with black, yellow and grey, navy and olive. I went to the tom scott trunk show and ordered a hunter green sleeveless sweater that I want to pair with a pair of slate blue cropped pants and maybe white jazz shoes

After the Dries Fall 2005 show I fell in love with the orange/grey combo seen here:

(style.com)

Here was my attempt at the orange grey combo that I posted in the waywt thread, which I loved at the time but am not so sure about anymore ...

adore, a coral colored cardi, Oh I really want that, I love coral. !
I love the pics you posted, and I really haven't noticed this before but I think that I tend to wear mostly neutrals and then add a colored piece. I absolutely love that first Sari Gueron outfit in post # 24
- that's how I want to dress. !

a few years back I used to wear a lot of brown, olive and black as well, but I've found out that I can actually wear color, well as long as they aren't too harsh or neon-ish

leyla, I second Hannes comment. Great colors.
I'm thinking that the garment in last pic might look great with some brown or navy pants/tights. What do you plan on wearing it with.?

tourist, nice. ! I really like the grey with the orange. I think I need some sort of orange t..

every autumn/winter I usually resort to the same colours, and happily, because typically spring and summer colours don't suit me.
my favourites: black, charcoal, slate, raspberry, forest green, grape, navy and sapphire blue, scarlet and very dull gold.

the general idea:

marni a/w 07
