Here is my second-to-last entry in Katerina's color challenge, crazy clashing colors. The first one is a high-contrast clash, cobalt & rust. The other two are tonal clashes, orchid & burgundy, and then turquoise, cobalt & teal. This was fun to do, but certainly not something I can do often.

1) Keeping it simple with cobalt silk blouse tucked into rust pants. Accessories are rust booties that match the pants and lighter - cognac bag.

2) Going tonal with orchid modern twinset and burgundy faux leather full skirt. Accessories are tall burgundy boots that match the skirt, and black bag. I wore it with the cardi closed as in the second photo. I have been seeing looks with multiple leather items together and trying it out here, but not sure I like it or if the skirt and boots together are too much. Old school of thought was suede boots with leather skirt and vice versa.

3) Another tonal look, with three colors: turquoise wool blazer, cobalt faux leather shell, teal crop kick flare pants. Accessories were silver: snakeskin booties and old satchel. This was the last wear for the old pleather shell - it ripped parallel to the side seams and had to be thrown out. This is why I generally avoid faux leather clothing, as I find it peels/cracks easily after certain amount of time. I caved and got a couple of new pieces this year with faux leather trending (including the skirt in #2), we will see if these new ones fare any better.
