On The Otherside of The Tracks

Sarah B -- Shirt: Parker from Nordstrom / Shorts: Express / Shoes: Tory Burch / 
Bracelets: Kate Spade and Tory Burch / Watch: Michael Kors / Cross Necklace: dbDesigns
Long Necklace: Nordstrom

With fall soon on the horizon, Jobless Betch Sarah B has started to transition some summer outfits with fall-like color tones into her daily looks. All year round we all try to stay in a variety of color families, that compliment the season and the end of summer-beginning of fall marks a stage of warm tones. Staying in the same color family allows you to get away with just about everything. For example, Sarah B's outfit is made up of browns, red, and golds. In combining these warm tones, that are complimentary colors, she can get away with color blocking the warm red, against the warm brown. 

The rule of thumb is you can always get away with colors in the same family -- for example, you can always wear black with white and/or grey. That's why outfits consisting of opposite colors never really go together, the outfit will clash. Colors not in the same family include: red and green, orange and black, or purple and orange. What makes colors not in the same family ironic is that the majority of holidays focus on colors that usually clash (are not in the same family) -- sorry we will never be caught dead in red and green or orange and black; but we suppose maybe with the holidays they surround exceptions may be considered...emphasis on the considered. 

Just remember, colors are fun -- they may even be your fashion friend -- but be wary of the clash.
