Start with a base colour you can build a look around. I’ve chosen neutral tones of beige and white, ALOT of my wardrobe is made up of these colours which makes getting dressed easy, I can mix and match super quickly and know ill always look ‘put together’.

I’ve added in a scarf which has the same rust colour running through it as the blazer, this could be styled as a head scarf, neck scarf, however you like! The tones tie in really well, the scarf really helps to pull it all together nicely!

Matching tones or complimentary colours layered give your look another dimension. A blazer is just perfect for that and adds an element of smartness. With my beige look I’ve also added this pretty crochet crossbody bag for another tonally matching layer. The rust blazer works well as another complimentary colour injection that also serves to bring a pop of colour that will brighten your complexion if head to toe is too much.

Tonal dressing doesn’t have to mean head to toe block colours, by picking a print and matching your accessories in colour you have a different take on the tonal look. I'm obsessed with this shirt dress. It will work well for so many occasions and it’s so easy to wear! The mix of paisley pinks through the dress is super pretty, I've used this colour as the tonal match for my shoes and bag which has really brought the whole look seamlessly together.
