I’ve always loved the somewhat off beat color combo of tomato red and baby blue. Apparently so does Victoria Beckham. Though this outfit couldn’t be simpler it’s striking because of the color mix and the perfect proportion of the slightly cropped sweater to the slim cut but not tight pants.

Fashion recently has adopted a more is more attitude but sometimes the power of simple, understated chic is a welcome relief.
