A LOT OR A LITTLE . . . THAT IS THE QUESTION

Often, when it comes to color, you either know what's up or you don't. Sadly, and lazily, color is something that i often avoid when dressing myself because it's pretty hard to fuck up wearing all black . . . Even though many of the street-style images I post on this blog are of people wearing black head-to-toe, i'm always so much more impressed, and drawn to, those who know how to play with color.

The woman below obviously has a strong grasp of color; even though it's delicately applied. Adding one or two impressive splashes of color, bold or subtle, to an otherwise muted outfit can say so much.

Ania Arcaini (Assistant buyer for Luisa Via Roma . . . best store ever) looks just as amazing wearing loads of bright colors. . . nothing about this outfit is out of control though.
