Perfect Pairings for Every Color

|
For a long time I have wanted a quick and easy reference guide for what to wear with any given color of Portofino Shirt. I usually end up searching Pinterest for new ideas or looking through my outfit archives to see how I wore it last, but today I'm putting it all together ROYGBIV+ Style. (Plus pink!) (And by the way, from the comments I'm learning that ROYGBIV is not universally known! Sorry about that ladies. It stands for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. It's the visible color spectrum of the rainbow. You can read about it here.)











Except for Violet, all of these sets feature at least one girl wearing a Portofino Shirt in her outfit.  It's my go-to shirt for just about any occasion, and obviously I am not alone in loving it. Once you try it, it's hard not to want to collect all the colors! On Wednesday, I'll have the Non-ROYGBIV Edition of Perfect Pairings including my favorite colors, black and white (now available here).

  6. So many fantastic outfits with all the many different colors of the very versatile and super chic Portofino shirt. Next time I am in the States I need to stock up on them, in solids and some prints. I especially love all the outfits with the orange and yellow shirts.

    Happy Monday dear!

    1. I'm so sorry! I shouldn't have assumed that everyone (especially non-native English speakers!) would know what ROYGBIV means. It stands for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. You can read more HERE .

  14. It's like you wrote this post for me or something. I always shy away from color, but I have been thinking lately I need to incorporate some into my wardrobe and have been thinking a good solid color blouse or striped blouse would be a good way to do it. I love Rachelle's skirt and blouse combo and have been surprising myself by liking red a lot lately too.

  19. I really don't know what I would do without the portofino in my life. It's such a great staple and baseline for any and every outfit, throughout every season! Loved seeing these color pairings! Nicely done!

  25. Gorgeous colors! All of these brights make me so happy. I love carylee's especially! I used to be so afraid of "odd" or interesting color pairings but I think blogging has changed that for me. And thank you for including me :) I'm wearing that green portofino tomorrow!

  26. What a neat post idea! I don't own any of the Portofino shirts but I have three that are very similar. I'll have to keep these combos in mind next time I wear one!

  27. This post is such a great color combination lesson! I definitely should buy THE CONVERTIBLE SLEEVE PORTOFINO SHIRT in multi colors!

  28. The portofino section at Express is a sight to behold as well! A bevy of tops in every color of the rainbow and in between! It really is hard to pick just one and not want them all..the camis are just as enticing! The ladies as always look fab! I see Kreyola & Caryl make repeat appearances!

  30. This is fantastic, especially since I own them in so many colors! I love this and now I want to wear them every day (although I already do)! I love the printed ones and am waiting to wear my pineapple and flamingo prints. You are amazing with this post!

  33. Wow - so many pretty colours...I think one of my favorite combos is Carylee's hot pink with navy stripes! It's nice to have all the choices in one place - great job creating a reference list - it works well for non-portofino blouses too - I have some F21 blouses in primary colors, so this is a HUGE help!

  41. The portofino are truly worth having a couple colors in. They are just so versatile!! Even now I was thinking for Saint Patrick day, it would have been nice to have the green color version. Thanks for the feature :D.
