Outfit Of The Day For May 30, 2012. How to Wear A Shot Of Bright Color

May 30, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

If you are like me and feel most comfortable wearing black, don’t be afraid to try a shot of bright color from time to time. Today is gorgeous and sunny and it should be summer, but our cool Chicago weather keeps me in layers. It’s easier to wear intense colors when it is sunny! This saturated citrus Rachel Rachel Roy top works well over skinny jeans and under a boyfriend jacket. I love this Susan Hanover gold cuff because it adds a few more bold colors, brilliant red and coral to my outfit. I borrowed the cuff from Lauren and (shhh!) have still not returned it.
