This weeks issue of The Rail* demonstrates the ability of creating an outfit using only two colour palettes. Blue’s contrast with tan’s to show a uniform made up of wardrobe essentials: a shirt; pair of trousers; sturdy shoes and a bag. Each work hand in hand to create a look that is not only simple but also easy on the eye.
