No Pants Summary: Mixing it up

May 4, 2011 in Fashion, Style, What I Wore by alliemcc

Part 2: How I did it

30 days with approximately 47 garments (not including accessories & shoes) in 32 different outfits…



Neutrals-only outfits.

There was a whole lot of black going on last month, something I had gotten away from the past few years…


Days and Colors

Number of days I wore a color or combination

  • black – 14
  • neutrals only – 11
  • blue – 10
  • a neutral + a bright – 8
  • more than 1 bright – 7
  • green – 5
  • pink – 3

brights collage

Outfits with 2 or more bright colors or prints.

I LOVE mixing prints and wearing brights, especially in combinations—it’s like a vase of flowers on your desk…


midtone blues greens

Midtone colors – mossy greens and dusty blues.

I found I don’t wear a lot of these midtone color combinations with very little contrast…


neutrals plus brights

Neutral colors (black, gray, brown, cream, sometimes navy) with just a pop of bright color.

Memorize this formula for an easy way to create a polished look. It’s just past boring without being too bright…
