Much like yellow, I don’t own anything in true orange.  Instead, I prefer the way a red-orange, rust-orange, or this more coral color, looks with my hair color and skin tone.   I love all shade of blue and green, and particularly favor a good blue-green.  Before these Fashion 101s, I would never have thought to pair this color with a shade of orange and still don’t feel completely myself in this outfit.  I loved the way S. wore these complimentary colors on Monday and E’s version, also from Monday, so figured I should give it a try.  To make it feel a bit more me, I am also mixing my neutrals!

Have you taken inspiration from any of our outfits and then made it your own?  If so, send us a picture and tell us about it!
