Ask Shopbop: Bold Separates

Look 1: Tibi blouse, Wildfox jeans, Monserat De Luca necklace, and Kelly Wearstler cuff. Look 2: Equipment blouse, Free People skirt (similar), Pamela Love and Alexis Bittar bracelets, Erickson Beamon necklace.

Pairing a bright blouse with a bold pant can be a dynamite look, and I have a few tips for pulling it off with style.

When going bright and bold, keep your silhouette well defined. This isn’t the moment to experiment with shape, so stick to tried and true. Keep things lean on the bottom and go a bit looser on the top, or vice versa.

Keep accessories simple and supportive. Rely on classic favorites or pieces that tie into your theme.

Consult the color wheel! Some colors enhance each other and some compete. Look to combine complementary colors, and beware of notable color combos like black and orange or red and green. These pairings can look very “calendar girl” in an un-chic way.
