I've been paying more attention to color lately, and how one plays with the other. What looks good together, what doesn't, and why. It all started when I saw this gorgeous chunky yellow necklace at a store. I loved it, wanted it, thought it was so cool. But I couldn't come up with any creative ways to incorporate the tacky color into my closet without looking like Ronald McDonald. Then I saw a Vera Wang runway show and suddenly it all made sense - a model wore a similar yellow necklace fabulously. Here's how to make it work: If you wear a loud fashion color, pair it with the muted version of the same color. You won't look tacky, you'll turn heads!!!
Tone on tone color done right:
