How to Wear ColorI have to give credit to the stylists, because they did a really good job mixing bright colors with neutrals. I usually play it safe and wear jeans, a white tee and a bright pink jacket (nothing crazy here). But I like the idea of mixing in some other bright shades (that don't match, but compliment) in the mix.
Attention, people who only wear black and safe neutrals! This is the season you’re going to venture into pink, cobalt, even orange. Deep breaths. We’ll show you how.
If you normally wear camel: Adding sunset hues like orange, red and fuchsia plays up the cozy feel of fall.
1. It all begins at the collar: The piece nearest your face will get the most attention, so start the outfit here.
2. Layer your shades: Mix two or more tones of the same spectrum for a big impact, like these shirt-and-jacket combos.
3. Experiment with shape: A playful hue is unexpected and fresh in tailored pants; so is camel done in floaty chiffon.

However, I am not sold on some of the pieces themselves. In particular, the boxy jacket looks sloppy (let's swap it for a fitted jacket in the same shade). Also, I can't tell what is up with the skirt's length. Is it asymmetrical on purpose, or did part of her skirt get accidentally tucked when putting it on?
What are your thoughts on the advice shared? Do you have any suggestions when mixing color in your outfits?
