look 16: the sunshine palette.

color has always been a big thing for me, especially when it comes to putting a look together. hues that don't flow or balance each other out make me uncomfortable (which is why you'll rarely ever see me wearing random, wacky combos). now, don't get me wrong, i'm a fan of skillful color-blocking; and if you're one of those people who hates anything "matchy-matchy," no problem. but as for me and my wardrobe, i need a certain level of coordination. case in point: this spring-ready 'fit i threw on this morning.

wearing: asos man zip-neck tee with retro paneling, river island cropped trousers, vans authentic dx sneakers in tan.

breaking down the look

this one all started with the shirt, which gives the look a small, but solid pop of yellow—muted just like I like it, and still perfect for the sunshine. from there, i pulled out a couple of easy neutrals that complemented the top half, but didn't compete. and thankfully, i found the perfect spot at the last minute to shoot it. the end result: a color palette that i could definitely get used to this season.
