Somebody once gave me a very handy piece of advice about how to get away with wearing colors that don’t particularly flatter you. It’s quite obvious, but in a million years would not have occurred to me:
You just throw on a hit of another, more flattering, color—and make sure this is the one that comes closest to your face. So easy! And so easily accomplished, with a scarf or a necklace, or a bit of strategic layering. Or, if you’re the too-lazy/busy-to-style-yourself type—and if your most tragic hue, like mine, happens to be grey—you can just throw on this this clever little number.
