Strong prints, bold colors and striking silhouettes show no sign of backing down for fall. The 1980s geometric shapes and neon hues are here to stay … at least until next season.
No need to shy away: These seemingly daunting trends are quite wearable if you follow some simple guidelines. Pick a print that you love — chances are it will look good on you. We naturally gravitate toward colors that flatter us. Next, accessorize with one or two colors.
On this Mondrian-inspired dress ($50), I focused on orange — a delicate gold necklace with small orange stones ($15). Not only does the necklace add a finished touch, it balances the one-shoulder neckline by softening the angle. At the wrist I added dainty gold, pink and crystal bracelets ($22 for a set of 9).
Neutral footwear is always a safe bet, so I opted for nude platform pumps ($40). Handbags need not match shoes, and in this case the electric blue purse ($50) pops an added layer of fun.
