When styling bright and louder pieces, I try to throw in some less pronounced neutrals. In this case, I looked to a white tee and grey utility pant. I stayed with red hues for some major parts of this look, but the warm tones are balanced out by cool grey bottoms and shoes.
Layering over basics can take things up a notch and is loads of fun to experiment with! Personally, I like to mix textures and prints. It's probably easy to go overboard, and I won't say I never have. Personal style is so dynamic, though; sometimes, playing with ideas you usually wouldn't entertain is just how you find what you like. For this look, I was inspired by a mannequin displaying a statement necklace layered over a scarf at Nordstrom. I had always loved the idea of combing the two, but hadn't come to any conclusions about the best ways to do it. I didn't take the display apart, so I'm not sure that I did it in the same way, but I think it turned out well. Stay tuned to see how I did it.
I brought some great company, a trusty photographer.
