I'm not repeating myself again (and why not repeating colour creates a more interesting outfit)

I would like to talk about the effect of not repeating a colour in an outfit and see if the samples below here help bring it home for you too.

Here we go.

These photos below were taken only 2 years apart from each other. The one on the left was when I was using my Light, Dark, Colour and a Print system (which is a super awesome system) and I was framing my light dress with a dark shoe But...

I was repeating the colour in my scarf back down again in my shoe giving you two places to look at, at one time instead of allowing you to just look around and enjoy my entire outfit.

Having the whole ensemble on the right below not repeat a colour gives your eyes a chance to look around and then see me rather than struggling to flip back and forward on the repeating colour (first outfit) which actually compacts the whole outfit (and me).

I did show a few more examples and wrote a little spill about this some more in my FREE CLOSED FACEBOOK GROUP of which you can actually join if you would like to learn even more ==> HERE <==

I would also give you some examples of another "Boss Babe", Belinda Turner who has been in the Boss Course for over 2 and a half years now so is simply nailing her wardrobe on a daily basis.

Let's have a look at Belinda's already awesome outfits and watch how much "smoother" they have become with my "no repeating a colour rule" today.

The black of the jeans and the white of the street sneaker have both been repeated in the scarf with the photo on the left but there is no repping to be seen on the right. Not repeating a colour adds visual height.

Let's have a look at another one.

The white from the scarf has been repeated again with the white street sneaker while the outfit on the right is very free and easy to look at. Extremely stylish while still using my "Light, Dark, Colour and a Print" system.

And just because we can never really get enough inspiration for outfits, here is one more of Bel.

The white spot in the jacket repeats the white street sneakers in the photo on the left but check out how awesome the outfit on the right looks with not one single repetition in sight.
