Style: Bright Ideas

Boldly go where you’ve never gone before, in shots of color-intense suiting and separates.

 

If you’ve ever stopped and scanned the contents of your closet, only to come to the realization that your go-to color palette hasn’t evolved since your Boy Scout days, take note: a bright spot is on the horizon. Thankfully, the summer-to-fall trend has nothing to do with overhauling your investment black suits and khaki cargos in favor of Rod Roddy-approved pieces; instead, it’s about rotating a few color-charged staples into a wardrobe that borders on tired—one at a time (you want to look savvy, not shocking). Shots of personality? Come on down.
