IN MOURNING FOR BLACK
It will never be entirely over for black, even though midnight and navy have given it a beating lately. And now, enter darkest eggplant, deep purples, and bottle greens to the competition. A peacock-blue lace dress (as seen at Michael Kors) is as sophisticated as black, less obvious than red, and much softer and more surprising than either of them. Swap your default white shirt for blue chambray and observe how much more modern you look (and feel).
