One of my best friends is a fourth grade teacher and he asked his kids to write an essay about anything they think they’re an expert on. Happily for me, one girl chose to write about fashion and he let me read it after he corrected it. It gave me hope for future fashionistas everywhere. She was very concerned with matching colors for example if you’re wearing a lemon colored top then you should be wearing lime colored shorts. If you’re ten this will make you a style star. If you’re older it might be taking it a bit too far.
But she’s definitely right about the lemon colors. I’m currently obsessed with ANY shade of yellow like the above Marc dress or the Wendy Woven Platform Sandals by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent, both at Shop Bop.
If you want to go the lime route I suggest the bright shade in small doses like Kate Spade’s Clinton St., – Tayrn Vachetta French wallet. It’s bright, super preppy and you’ll fit right in walking around the Back Bay. Or, if you’re still in high school, you could get this Chanel knock off by Juicy Couture and be the queen bee just like my favorite fourth grader.
