Styling Tip #3: Keep it all in the family! Color family that is.
If you're having a hard time pairing items, don't worry. Fashion, or more accurately, what is considered fashionable evolves; and what was once considered to be taboo is perfectly acceptable today. For example, plaids and stripes together get the green light provided you keep them within the same color family; even wearing varying shades of the same color are a go ahead, like what I'm doing here.
The color taupe is such a delious shade of brown (and grey). For the suit, I went with a dark taupe then swung the pendulum all the way to brown for my purse and then in the opposite direction to a light taupe for my shoes. I opted for a lighter top in the daytime and paired it with a statement necklace with a mix of amber-orange bobbles and wooden beads for a contrast in texture to the sateen of the suit.
