I learned a valuable lesson when putting together this latest 3 Ways To Wear post. Aqua is a bitch to match! Despite the sequin collar sleeveless blouse being a pretty simple piece to work into your wardrobe, in this particular colourway you have to be very careful what you match it with. Aqua is one of the few colours that's hard to pair with denim (get the wrong green to blue ratio and you can end up looking awful) so black is a safer bet, but experiment with texture and detail (like scallops, studs and suedes) to keep the look interesting. Add pops of contrasting colour like bubblegum pink, or go for a neutral palette in a striking print and play on the glittery collar to turn skinny jeans and boots into something a bit more unusual. Here are three ways to make Lavish Alice's cute little blouse into something very special indeed...
