Fashionista: Shopping Goodwill for favorite color combination

Some pairings are just meant to be – peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk, aged cheddar with a great wine. When it comes to apparel pairings, I can’t get enough of black and white and those fun beachy colors turquoise and coral. But my all-time favorite would have to be kelly green and navy. When I’m at Goodwill, I always gravitate toward it.

I purchased this peacoat at Goodwill several years ago and always get compliments when I wear it. When I spotted this kelly green and navy chevron blouse, I knew it was meant to be. Not only does it coordinate beautifully with my coat, but the chevron pattern automatically offers a slimming effect by giving you a long, lean look.

Kelly green and navy are cool colors and so easy to pull together. How about a pair of green ankle pants and a navy top? Or start small with a necklace similar to the one I’m featuring here. The green beads play off the extra fun detail of the blue tassels.

I found this new-to-me pair of jeans and never turn a high waist. I’m hoping this trend sticks around for a while. I stay away from low rise as much as I can and pass on ripped jeans, too, because I don’t want to look like I’m trying to hard. High-rise, classic straight-legged jeans will be your friend and stay in your wardrobe because they are classic.

Speaking of classy, to wrap up the look I found this caramel-colored bag with the cute detail of the toggle. Perfection!

So what’s your favorite color pairing? Whatever the color, GW has you covered. Have fun thrifting!
