December is officially red, white and black month this year at 40+Style. So I really hope that you’re not sick yet of this color combination, because you are going to get a lot more of it this December!
Black and white has always been a favorite of mine and this year it’s absolutely everywhere. Since I feel the need to add color to my wardrobe, I like to splash in some red or blue. As I told you recently in my post on effective sale shopping, I came away with quite a few prints. Most of these can be mixed and matched with one another, so over the coming week(s) you will be seeing some nice combinations in mainly these 3 colors: red, white and black.
Pattern mixing, yay!
Above you will see this simple polkadot dress I bought. I combined it with an old (and neglected) pencil skirt I have, which actually has an assymetric undercover (not really visible here). I thought that outfit looked quite decent, but I wanted to add some more pizazz…
Red hat versus black hat
Also note, that I tried this outfit with both my red hat that you have seen before and my new black hat that looks a bit like a hat from the twenties. The red hat is a little bit more photogenic while the black is a bit more chic.
Adding the second graphic top, makes for some nice pattern mixing, a trend I have admired in others and was keen to try out myself. The top is also very versatile and you can really have fun with it for photographs! In the end I decided to go with the black hat, as I felt that the outfit itself was playful enough. Of course, I kept the red shoes and watch.

I will also be going on a winter holiday and due to limited suitcase space, my clothes capsule will be in those colors as well. Fear not my friends, I’m sure I will be tired of it by January and i can show you some new color combis. Or better still, why don’t you show me how you wore your Sunday style this week?
