Color-Pusher

Shorts - J.Crew, Top - Skies Are Blue, Blazer - INC, Handbag - Apt 9, Wedges - LC Lauren Conrad, Necklace - New Direction

Pairing pastels with a primary color, like I did above, isn't always going to work. And while bold pairings may not be for the color-shy, they certainly do make a statement, which is why I always urge others to participate in a little color play. I'm kind of a color-pusher. I push colors. For a glamorous old Hollywood flair, pair black and yellow together or -- for a juicy summer scheme try incorporating pink and orange into a look. What are some of your favorite color combos to wear?

  52. The colors work so well together here! If I was the one piecing this together, I would never have had the confidence enough to make the outfit work (color wise...I would have looked at the individual pieces and shrieked, not thinking they'd work together!). Kudos to you!
