How To: Wear Mismatched Colors
I saw this picture of a Lucky Magazine staffer online and the first thing I thought was why is she wearing so many different colors. They're fairly mismatched and then as I let the image sink in all of a sudden I didn't mind. I realized that the cut of all the clothes she was wearing was pretty tailored and for some reason it helped offset the conundrum of color that's going on. I think if you're going to go for an unconventional color pairing, keep the silhouettes tailored, avoid loose shapes and baggy fabrics and keep it sleek, and well-fit. The result is you'll focus more on the way it looks on you than the way it looks together.
