Sequin Issue: There are certain things in my closet that only match with other specific items.
My biggest rule when it comes to colors? If it lives in the same color family than it matches.
Sure, when you hear me say, 'Blue and Green', you think maybe it can work. When I say the words Teal, Dark Blue, Sea Green and Baby Blue what do you think? I have a feeling that many readers would look at me through squinted eyes and declare me to be off my rocker. The truth is, these colors can work together, as long as you are purposeful about your choices. These colors are in the same color family, which means that they have the ability to work together. You would wear brown and tan together wouldn't you? The same reasoning applies here. Teal and Sea Green are just a few wedges away from each other on the color wheer.
A common misconception is that if two items are different shades of the same color ( teal and baby blue for instance) they the two items don't work together. I maybe wouldn't suggest wearing a baby blue belt over a teal shirt, but putting them in the same outfit can work. Take for instance the above shoes and bracelet. Because there is so much distance between the two items, in an outfit they give the appearance of being a match.
