When it comes to tonal layering, breaking the so-called “rules” of fashion never looked so good. Simple yet sophisticated, tonal outfit combinations are attention-grabbing and, once you look at your closet with fresh eyes, easy to pull together with what you already own. The trick? Pick a color that works for you and then add lighter and darker tones of that same hue, with outer layers and accessories. I also like to throw a metallic or a neutral into the mix, for balance. In this particular NYFW outfit, I opted for contrasting fabrics to give the look a modern and interesting finish. For a little extra personality, I added a studded, tasseled clutch (this Rebecca Minkoff one is so fun!). What do you guys think? How would you rock a tonal look?
