The Best Colors to Wear Together
Do you know what the best colors to wear together are? You may already know what I’ll say just by looking at these photos. The best colors to wear together are black and camel. I seriously think you can’t go wrong wearing these together. If I can’t decide or figure out what to wear, this color combination is my go-to and it almost always is a hit. For instance, a couple Falls ago I just wanted to go outside and take some outfit photos. Didn’t plan ahead so I just threw something together and that post was a hit! Still a favorite of mine (crazy looking back at photos with my wig on!). Or what about this outfit from RD’s Obsessions early days? That outfit went viral for me. I honestly think it was because of the black and camel combo.
Why These Colors
They are classic colors. Classics always work. In my opinion, if you wear anything classic you are guaranteed to be foolproof. Classics never run out of style. Notice how I shared outfits from two and three years ago? I can still wear them now.
Looks good on anyone. Seriously, anyone will look good in black and camel. It is flattering.
It looks luxury. Black and camel is so classic that these colors are always used in luxury. Because of that, wearing these colors have that luxe look and feel.
So there you go. My foolproof, never failed outfit. This is why I think black and camel are the best colors to wear together.
Classic Black Bag
Now let’s talk about that new bag I am wearing. I actually have never owned a medium sized black satchel bag. I’ve always been a crossbody bag kind of girl. But more recently, I’ve been wanting something a little bit larger. I love carrying my lip conditioner, tinted lip balm, planner, notebook, and new wallet (which is larger than my last one) with me. The crossbody bag didn’t have the space to carry these items.
I also wanted a bag that has a classic look with amazing compartments. My Radley London medium satchel pretty much meets all the criteria I wanted in a new bag. Have you heard of this brand? It is so worth checking out! The quality and style is amazing. So chic! I also think it is a great bag for work!
Another thing that I love about this bag is their logo! Their logo is a Westie and I love Westie dogs. Most of you already know I love love love my parents’ dog Elmo. He is a Westie and he is the best dog ever. I loved that after every chemo or treatment, he would always come over and stay right by my side. It’s like he knows something is up and just wants to protect me. I shared this brand with my mom, and my mom also fell in love with their bags and the Westie logo haha!
Wonderful look! I like stripes so much!! The bag is perfect!
