Red and Pale Blue

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. Sleeves casually pushed up, dark glasses and clean nude sandals with undone hair emphasize the nonchalant attitude. This is a clear case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Fashion recently has adopted a more is more attitude but sometimes the power of simple, understated chic is a welcome relief.
