I haven’t been a big fan of vibrant colors for myself. I love the look on others, but I always thought I was too “low-contrast” – pale hair and pale skin – to look great in brights. And I still don’t like many brights next to my face, like vivid yellow, orange, green, or bold colorful prints.

This hot pink jacket by Cynthia Rowley is one of the pieces changing my mind. I picked it up at Housing Works thrift in Chelsea for about $30, a great find. I wrote about it here, calling it a new “key piece” for my closet. I can always fall back on my navy or black blazer but this one makes me happy. For me, one bright color per outfit is enough – some fabulous blogger friends would call it a starting point, and add lots more glorious color.
The remainder of the look is neutral, but not dull: a wonderful wrap dress from Karina, and thrifted Donald J. Pliner knee boots (similar). Faux pearls (sim) and red lips – I’ll wear red lips with any color outfit – and we’re done.
