I like creating outfits that have contrast, something visually interesting that may take you a minute or two to figure out. I put this outfit together for an afternoon of pulling looks for the Virginia This Morning segment as it was comfortable, but layered and had a few interesting details. An easy way to create contrast and interest in your own looks is to start with a somewhat monochrome base (try all grays or a mix of black and white) and then add a detail that pops – something that isn’t quite like everything else. For this outfit, the addition of this brown tone necklace, with some silver/grey accents to tie in it, really helped add a visual element. Because the look wasn’t matched, it stood out more.

I am in Colorado traveling, rock climbing, adventuring and doing all things fun until June 3. I will respond to comments and questions as I am able. Style/fashion related snaps will be posted to Chic Stripes social media accounts as usual, but most travel pictures will be here. Please follow if you like!
