Your new fashion mantra: "Instead of my LBD, for my next date, cocktail party, wedding, or other excuse to dress up - I WILL wear color." This sweet Tibi frock has an exuberant print that's completely irresistible in a cut that's begging to be taken out and shown a good time. For a picnic, BBQ or beach party, go more low key in flats (try Juicy Couture's "Violet" toe-ring espadrille sandal, a casual-chic tote in "Teaberry", and a fabulous straw hat - as seen below), But when the sun goes down, step out South Beach style in vibrant grass-green heels, a coral bag, and jewelry with fringe. Worried about how to balance so much color at one time? First, focus on one or two key hues in the print - in this case green and coral - in order pick accessories that coordinate in a non-clashy way. Then, evaluate whether the background of the print is cool or warm. Here, it's a warm beige, so a warm-toned metal such as bronze or gold is your best choice - and the reason that with this dress, gold-toned jewelry works so well.
