The Fashion Industries Favorite Business Network ...

Since this issue is kicking off our personal style campaign, we've been talking non-stop about different ways to express your individuality through your clothes and taking chances with your style, one particular element that seemed to be the easiest way to start was color! When you're just starting out, it can be hard to determine which colors are right for. Questions like "does this compliment my skin tone" or "do I have anything that could actually go with this" are common and important to address. Also, if your wardrobe revolves around neutrals (like mine does), color can also seem a bit overwhelming. Here are a couple tips that can help get you started in the beautiful world of color!

-Start small. If you feel that head-to-toe yellow might make you look more like a large banana than a super model, then start with little punches of color. This dress from Max Studio (top left) is a great way to get started. Mostly black and white, this cotton sun dress offers the safety of neutrals with the pizazz of color in a gorgeous fucshia scarf belt.

-Be brave. If you've tried small doses of brights and now you're ready for the big time, then don't hesitate! You'll never know unless you take a chance and put it on. Try to choose colors that compliment your skin: a safe bet is always deeply saturated color. The paler it gets, the more danger you face in washing yourself out. Try something like this Victoria Secret halter dress in a bright yellow(bottom). The detailing is simple, so the focus stays on the color without appearing fussy.

Liz Clark - did you really see these same exact styles on that other website. Please becareful to provide accurate information. The halter dress in the original post is from Victoria Secret. I do not think that they sell garments on websites other then their own. Anyway, it is great that you wish to participate in the concersations and advise people of your websites. However, please be careful because we draw a fine line between being helpful and spam.. thanks for your understanding.
