What do all these outfits have in common?
and how do these outfits look compared to those above?
What was the first thing that stuck out to you for all these looks?
Was it the fit?
A specific item they were wearing?
Or did you notice the colors?
The biggest difference between the first batch and the second is COLOR.
The first batch has too much of it and the second batch showcases outfits that are more thoughtful in color coordination.
How does the second batch of outfits look cool, cohesive, approachable and more put-together?
These outfits focus on only FOUR colors!
These 4 colors are season-less, look great on all body types and look amazing when paired together to create an outfit.
Today, I’m going to share with you “Next Level System” that I use for all my one-on-one clients to make sure they avoid style boredom with their wardrobe.
First, let’s look at this color hierarchy pyramid that I’ve created.
This is a guideline that you can use for your wardrobe to ensure you have the right colors in your closet so that you can create more outfits with less clothing in your closet.
Next, let’s dive into the details with some outfit inspiration.
50% : CORE COLORS
40% : TONAL TEXTURES
These colors are light to dark of Navy and Grey.
You can also incorporate the Tonal prints as seen in the 2nd the 4th picture.
10% : SEASONAL COLOR & PRINTS
This is where you can interject seasonal color trends.
One of the biggest reasons that I recommend my 50/40/10 Rule is because I have found that it will make you look instantly more put together, intentional with your style and prevent common frustrations.
