Last week saw Melbourne’s fashion elite strut their stuff and parade in their finest for the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. Monica and Ben, the duo behind the fashion and lifestyle online magazine M.B Harper, were up there in my list of best-dressed couples. This pair know how to coordinate their outfits.
So what should you look out for when planning an outfit with your partner? The first thing to consider is your collective colour palette. As a pair, your colour choices should complement each other, stick to the same colour tones and shade. Keep the silhouette simple and classic, this will ensure a polished and cohesive look. The fit is the most important factor when putting together your look. You should always aim for the perfect fit on your body. An ill-fitting attire is the quickest way to look dishevelled. And lastly, no one person should stand out more than the other, unless of course you want to!
