My mother gave me these pearls for Christmas, how classic, right?! So I went for an ultra ladylike outfit to showcase them. I got several compliments on this "dress" which is actually a blouse and skirt! Since both are from Banana (even though they were purchased, literally years apart) the colors match up perfectly, which is one advantage of pairing pieces from the same store--compatibility!
I also think this is a great example of an outfit of neutrals being graphic and chic. Regular readers know I love bright color, but I also enjoy pairing black, beige, white, grey, navy,--any combination of these "workhorse" colors can be just as striking as a look of bold hues.
