Style Advice: Play with Colours

Hi Readers,

Hope you are having a great weekend. I love to play with colours and decided to pair this wine waist coat with camel pants. I love the contrast and finally paired with louboutin shoes.

You are probably wondering how do I know what colours to play with?

Tip 1: Personally, I say stick with colours that show your best assets and keep it within the same family of colours. For example, you can mix pastels on pastels, warm earthy colours with earthy colours.

Tip 2: Another trick is to look at a colour wheel and go for the popular saying “Opposites attract”. This is one simple and easier trick to work on colour mixing and graduate to more daring colour matches.

Any questions. please leave in the comment section.

How to Style your Black-and-white outfit

Happy New Month to my stylebytoyoc readers????????????

Thank you all for your continued support and I have great surprises in store this month.

Black and white is such a classic combination that makes you look so chic and sophisticated. This monochrome look oozes class and stylish effect. Black and white monochrome look is one style here to stay forever. Do you agree?

What’s in an outfit if you cannot add your personality. I paired my black and white zara dress with blue sandals (also from zara). I wanted a pop of color so I played with beyond beauty lip gloss (purplish pink) and my shoes.

Belfast Travel Diaries – Cocktail Networking Night

I attended a cocktail and pizza networking session at the Perch, a rooftop bar in Belfast and it was really amazing. Perch has a great ambiance and a glamorous setting with comfortable seats with blankets (great place for a date night). This is one place I will recommend everyone to visit. Did I mention, the food is really good.

Belfast Travel Diaries – Culotte Obsession

My culotte obsession started with my Fablanebyderin mustard jumpsuit and I have to say “My name is Toyosi Clay and I’m obsessed with culotte. This navy culotte is so comfortable and I felt so free. It also helped me hide my big belly (A+ for this piece). I rocked it with my gold and pink sandals and a multicoloured necklace.

I am so proud of my makeup, done by Myself and came out right (I think)…thank God hehe. Please rate my makeup, I give myself a 6…is that too much? Let me know what you think.

I have also found a new love…Giorgio Armani Luminous silk foundation…Felt so light on my skin and love love the silk finish. It is pretty pricey (Sephora, $62) but totally worth it. I recommend this product. If you are located in Lagos, Nigeria and want one, don’t be discouraged by forex rates, you can definitely order here from @beautiverse on Instagram.

I went on a bus tour and learnt so much about Belfast. Having watched Titanic so many times and always crying each time like I had never watched the movie. I learnt so much about the history and the culture, it was beautiful.

Interesting Fact: Do you know what the beacon of hope sculpture stands for? The globe at her feet indicates the universal philosophy of peace, harmony and thanksgiving, and has marked on its surface the cities where the people and industries of Belfast migrated and exported to.
