Michelle is a Modern Classic dresser who incorporates boho and Western influences into her style. Her beautiful red hair and accessory game add interest to every outfit. She documents her looks on her Instagram account, yourcolorcrush. An aptly chosen name, as our blogger is not afraid of bold colour combos, and rocks every colour in the book!

The olive booties paired with the olive, burnt orange, and brown patterned blouse make this polished casual look. Michelle has tucked a silky cap-sleeved blouse with gorgeous abstract print into straight-legged camel trousers. A brown belt with Western-style buckle echoes the Western-y vibe of the footwear and hat, and accentuates her waist. The back part of the booties have a striking zebra pattern that subtly adds extra visual interest. Dainty necklaces and bracelets, and oversized hoops add subtle bling. Michelle’s straw hat and bright orange-red lippy finish off the look to perfection.

This smart casual look has lots of romantic flair thanks to the combination of swooshy palazzo pants with an off-the-shoulder ruffled blouse. Michelle has tucked the deep rust blouse into white wide-legged palazzo trousers, whose tiers cleverly echo the tiered ruffles of the top. The rust looks stunning with our blogger’s beautiful red hair. A brown belt with gold buckle cinches the waistline, and the gold is repeated in her bracelets and the decorative chain on the block-heeled sandals. Michelle adds pattern with a leopard print clutch. Art deco-ish geometric-shaped dangly earrings and a bright red lip add extra colour.

What a fantastic example of one-shoulder dressing! Michelle’s unique mock-neck sweater combines a solid cool-toned brown with a warm-toned leopard print. The buckle shoulder strap creates an edgy alluring effect. Tucking the sweater into relaxed-fit cropped white jeans lengthens the leg line from the hips up. Rust pointy-toe stiletto ankle boots bookend our blogger’s red locks, and emphasize the Fall vibe. Michelle finishes off the look with a black mini crossbody that matches the black in the leopard print, large bamboo hoop earrings, and glam oversized sunnies.

The unexpected combination of bright orange-y yellow and coral screams Summer. Michelle is sporting an off-the-shoulder boho-style polka dot midaxi dress. She accentuates the high waist with an earthy brown suede belt, and has thrown over a chunky hip-length cardigan with raglan sleeves. The vertical knit and cable detailing on the cardigan create a vertical effect that draws the eye up and down. Dainty flat silver studded ankle-strap gladiator sandals add subtle polish. So do our blogger’s jewellery, trademark bright red lip, and glam sunglasses. Michelle’s wavy locks suit the romantic vibe of the look wonderfully. A canvas satchel in earthy beige and brown completes the outfit.

Michelle is wearing a crisp white button-down shirt and relaxed-fit straight-legged jeans. She’s layered an eye-catching orange chunky knit V-neck sweater over the shirt, which makes both colours pop even more. Our blogger has wrapped a hair tie around the bottom of the sweater and tucked it under for a fun gathered look. She’s also created an accessory and footwear complement that suits the Autumn vibe of her outfit with block-heeled leopard print booties and matching shoulder bag. This adds punchy cohesion to the look. The stones in the chunky statement necklace complement the outfit’s colour palette. And, as always, Michelle’s hair and lipstick add striking visual interest.

Michelle wears bright colours and earth tones equally well. Here, she dresses up distressed skinny jeans and a cream mock-neck sweater with a fabulous red wool-blend coat. Her unique square-heeled lace-up booties bookend the sweater and amp up the dressiness. Our blogger adds a touch of pattern with a wide elasticated belt with zebra print. The black is repeated in her quilted shoulder bag with chain-strap. Deep red lipstick, Michelle’s go-to bracelets and earrings are the polished finising touches.
