Be Bold. Stay Solid. In Bold, Solid Color Dresses!

Wearing a bold solid color 
can be as striking as wearing
an allover print.

A few rules for wearing brights:
1. Select a color that suits your skin tone.

Rule Number Two:
2. Select shoes and accessories that balance the colour 
(and style) of the dress.

Or let the dress —and the body— speak for itself.

Love the necklace and somehow the red shoes even work?!

Rule Number Three:
3. Spend more money on bold colors. 
Look for quality!

A hot pink or bright green dress from a discount store 
sadly might look 
like just that. 

But a similar dress in a fine fabric like silk, cashmere or wool makes all the difference. 

In the case of how to wear bold colour...
quality may the most important rule of all.
