#STYLE: Muted Highlights For Moderate Summer Experiences


In an ocean of season and trans-seasonal trends, keeping your style simple and elegant with a nifty dose of casual is key if you plan on transiting between work and play. Think highlighting what you already have with smart colours – colours fresh for a season that will continue to drive your wardrobe in an alternative period of the year. Our ‘Muted Highlights’ ensemble is just such an example of a look that can multiply itself into other looks by simply breaking the pieces apart and wearing them as separates with other staples or fashion pieces in your existing wardrobe.



Key in this specific look are the faded peach shirt and the black and white sneakers with the beige highlight. Why? Because these two pieces together create a fresh, updated look when worn against neutral colours such as white, black and grey. In a similar fashion, they can be worn independently, with monochromatic family members. Thus, creating entirely new looks from two items combined with other wardrobe staples of a similar colour group.

Don't forget to explore the monochrome family of your desired colour for added looks.


Look at colour families and consider your options. You’ll be surprised to find the vast array of options you have with one specific colour and the variety of composites you can develop from just mixing and matching. Try to always play around with your options during the morning or day, using the natural light to capture an image of yourself for review. Generally, photographic yourself under fluorescent lighting doesn’t result in the best colour interpretation of your look.

Don't forget to explore the monochrome family of your desired colour for added looks.



Remember to be kind to yourself. Fashion is meant to be enjoyed and your style, evidence of the fun you’re having. Also, consider swapping colours. So, if you look at the example we have for you, consider wearing pink suedes on your feet with a grey pair of trouser or jeans, vest in a different tone/shade of grey and the beige on top as a shirt.
