Colorblocking Greens

I had some styling help again recently in hopes to accessorize a two-toned forest green sweater.  I loved the color but didn't know how to make the sweater more interesting.  The grey trim around the neckline sort of threw me.  I sent a link to the sweater to a live help agent, and she said she knew just the scarf to add.  Since the sweater has two shades of forest green the colorblocking of the scarf with the lighter shade of green plus the navy and grey - it seems to work.  I wasn't sure what to do about the handbag, so I tried with both tan and black.  I think the tan works better, even though there is no other tan or brown in my outfit.  When looking at the photo, I notice the gold stitching of my jeans brings out the tan in the bag.  Or is it vice-versa?

  1. I think I like the tan bag best also. I've found taking pictures helps me see my outfits better. The scarf is perfect with this sweater and those are some great fitting jeans. Very cute casual outfit!

    1. Hi Stephanie, thanks for stopping by! The regular customer service agents who work the Live Help also help out with styling if you ask them. They have been awesome.
