Playing with colors is one of my favorites, both when it comes to my different silhouettes but also when making changes to my pictures, I always try to keep as little yellow nuance in my pictures as possible as it actually make big different how your saturation and colors appear in a photo.
You could of course just use lower saturation to remove the yellow nuance in the picture but that will affect all colors in the pic, green, red, blue, pink, you name it.
Bellow I have used the Hue/Saturation function in Photoshop to get a more monochrome look of the picture
1. Select 'Hue/Saturation' from the bottom right 'globe'. 
2. A popup window will appear and you can then select Yellow instead of the 'Master'.
3. In the Saturation, drag the arrow to the left as much as you think you need to, here to -40
4. In the Lightness, drag the arrow to the right, here up to +48
You could of course play with the other colors as well, but this gives you an understanding of how you could color correct your picture, if it has too much red, yellow, blue etc. by selecting the appropriate color to play with.

Have you ever took that picture and thought, if the light was less/more, the angle was just a bit different and if I just could look more tan or bright, well you could in easy steps in Photoshop do those very simple changes to have your pic from being good to being great or even amazing. I have during my blogging period tried learn how to take that perfect shot and how to make few changes to my pictures to make them more interesting and appearing for my followers. Below is one example of my pics where I easily played with Curves and levels in Photoshop. You have to make sure you don't exceed the darkness of the pic nor the lightning.

In Photoshop, on the bottom right panel, there is a 'globe' picture.
1. Select 'Levels...', move the dark arrow to the right, just where the pic's dark spots are dark enough and where you don't lose the details. The pic below has a value of 34. I left the left arrow as is '255', as my pic is way to light.
2. Now to play with what and how dark/light some of the colors you want to be, select 'Curves...' from the 'globe' on the bottom right. In 'Curves...' anywhere on the line, you can click and adjust the brightness verses the darkness. I pulled it slightly down, closer to the right to make sure I keep the brightness of the pic but make sure the overall silhouette has the right light on it.

Below is before and after, the change isn't huge but the quality is way different. You can better see the color of my Stuart Weizmann boots as well as the beautiful color of my Chloe Faye bag.

Leather pants and a simple shirt is the perfect outfit for daily work or a night out as it dresses you up but you still have that simple and elegant look. I always search for the leather pants that don't have that very edgy leather feeling as I could find it too appearing. the once below are from Asos and have a nice fabric. The shirt is from Monki and love how the stripes are merged in color. For more inspiring pics, visit my Instagram page @taghridhodroj
