Elements of Dominique’s Style:
1. Earth Tones!
Dominique plays with a chocolate brown base (her dress) and adds additional earth tones. This isn’t easy to do because you want tones and shades that contrast each other, otherwise it looks like a mess of mud. The good news is that earth tones are perfect for fall! Remember the golden rule: pick colors opposite each other on the color wheel. Here are my favorite earth tones:
2. Vintage accessories
Dominique has a great eye for unique accessories. She frequently shops at vintage and thrift stores to find unique pieces that no one else has. You can also find great vintage and vintage-inspired accessories on websites such as Modcloth.
3. An open perspective
Dominique lets her style evolve and doesn’t stick to any single genre. If you’d like to see more of Dominique’s style, check out her blog, Dress Darling, where she documents what she wears around her campus!
