I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think fit/shape might matter more than color?! I used to shop almost exclusively by color. I didn't care if things even fit me, I just wanted specific colors (paints in my style palette!) to wear together. Fast forward to today, and this top gets a "fail" solely because of fit. (I purchased while in a rush without trying it on, so back it goes...) Perhaps if the pants were high-waisted that would give the shirt more shape? I so love this color combo, but the fit is falling flat. What do you think - is shape or color more important in an outfit?
