Wanted: styling advice!

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if this outfit is too matched or not? I like how the colour of the bag and the shoes match, but perhaps it's it bit too much? I'm afraid I'm not really a styling expert lol..
Which jacket would you recommend wearing with it? I tried it with a plain black blazer but I'm not entirely sure if it works..







Thanks!

Me too but the 2nd is in case it gets too hot (without the scarf) and the 3rd if it gets colder (with a jacket). I'm not entirely sure about the jacket though but black just seemed the safest option

The whole outfit depends on what your hair is like as well don't know.. something about the colour of your tights looks a little off to me? they are too see-through, or maybe you need to change the colour altogether..

The tights are indeed a little see through black but not as much as they seem in the pictures (especially the 2nd one), I think it has something to do with the flash of my camera.. I thought about wearing bordeaux (burgundy) thights with them but I'm not used to wearing a lot of colour so I kind of tend to stay in my comfort zone with black
Oh and my hair is dark blonde, usually in a high ponytail, I guess this goes with anything.

I like the third one the best. Your scarf is amazing. It looks great with the coat. But the whole look would tie in better if you wore darker boots.

The first outfit looks good because the lighter coloured cardigan makes the whole look more harmonious.

So depends on if the weather calls for the coat or not.

Cute! I agree with Jasmine and Lynne.
You should post a picture with your burgundy tights too.

I like the first and third best but I'm not sure I really like the purse and boots together The colours look too close, but not close enough to match if that makes any sense.

I keep coming back I definitely like the first best, and have figured out why. I think the grey sweater somehow makes you look taller...can't explain why exactly.
My preference would be to go with darker boots, or bag. It can be hard to match different leather effectively. But I think I still like the colors you have chosen!
Pretty scarf btw!
