Dress code: Color story

The first rule of style: There are no rules. Or at least not when it comes to color blocking. It’s the trend that seems to return every season, combining vibrant hues in unexpected ways. To get the look, try pairing a tangerine-colored skirt with an emerald top. Or, mix a bubblegum-pink shoe with a mustard-colored dress. There are no wrong answers here, so turn the saturation up and create your own color experiment.
