So I finally got around to watching some of the 15 episodes of Ellen I have PVR’d and I settled on the one with Meryl Streep. Little did I know that she would become my latest colour combination muse!
You can see in the photo that she is wearing red pants and a drapy, almost 70s style blouse in a peachy shade, which I loved as a contrast to the boldness of the red.
I usually default to the cooler shades but had just tailored my red pants and was looking for an excuse to break them out.
SO… here is how I translated the colour inspiration:
My top is a bit more structured and I added a 3/4 sleeve beige blazer for work but I would go with the softer top with longer sleeves if I had something similar.
The funny thing was, after I started searching for images of Meryl on Ellen I realized that I was my inspiration was a total accident! Apparently, because of the way the colours translate to TV her top looked peach but here is how it looked in real life:
Well you gotta love accidental inspiration. Now I can say this daring stab at colour combining was all my idea *wink wink*
Would you work a peach & red look?
