While I do love a good pop of color every now and then, what I really love is when my colors blend into my neutral pieces just like they were neutrals themselves. They become more wearable, and therefore a better investment.
I'm pretty specific about the colors I like to wear - pinks, blues, the occasional olive green or mustard, and definitely red. But how to make these colors act like neutrals? I've found that the trick is to go for a pastel that's so light, it's really just a whisper of color. Add in a little texture for balance, and you've got an easy, every day kind of statement. My favorite kind.
