Tonal Vision

Hello, my dear friends! I’ve had this post in my draft for a few days but not sure if it is still “appropriate” to show coats since it should be spring but not feeling like it at all! ;D When I read on British Vogue that tonal look is a trend for spring, I thought I should share this regardless because this outfit is exactly that sans the coat.

Color is often a no-go zone for many because of it could be too much to handle. Personally, I find it challenging to mix and match more than three colors, but within the same color group, I am all for it. The style rule I go by when it comes to tonal look is mix in different texture (chunky wool, glitter pleats and velvet) and slight variation of the same color (dark burgundy, deep red and wine).

Agree that from head to toe to handbag in the same color, especially if it is a bright neon or citrus hue, the whole look could be too dramatic for everyday. Break it down a little with neutrals, like camel in this case, or gray, even white. I think the same outfit topped with army green outerwear would be a great look, too.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope this post would give you a quick tip on how to pull together a tonal look for spring. See you in my next post!

      Thank you so much, Mia! This heel design has become a DVN signature, more spring /summer shoes have the same heel.

    Oh Holly, I totally love this look. And of course that wearing coats is still appropriate. At least for us in Switzerland where winter still reigns.

      Hi Miri, so glad you like this look. This color combo is one of my fav for winter, I wear a similar every year. ^^
