It's no secret that I love color. As great (and easy) as black and white can be, a rich navy or a sunny yellow can be so much more. Most people probably stick to the same few shades, which is totally fine. There's really no point in experimenting with acid yellow when it will just make you look sickly.
The solution isn't switching the colors you wear but how you wear them. It's unexpected and on-trend to try out color blocking or even clashing colors. I am always finding inspiration from unlikely sources... ladies on the train, home decor magazines and most recently, the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Hong Kong Museum of Art.
I've always been drawn to the pop art movement because it is so bright, bold and disturbingly famillar. On this particular trip, I was really drawn in by the rich bold colors (I'm aching for spring). Some of my most favorite pieces are below... along with a little styling inspiration chock full o' Vaughan.
This Mobilgas piece is one of my favorites. I'm not sure if it's the fact that the Mobilgas logo is no more, or maybe that I just love the orangy-red color. I must say, the Keeper of the Flame orange silk shirt is on heavy rotation in my closet.
Sometimes Warhol really just got to the point. The dollar signs are completely crass and totally fabulous. I'd love to have them up in a home office. The coordinating look is a little tounge-in-cheek and definitely self aware. The Vaughan navy silk shirt and Donna Karan knit skirt are a nod to the polished UES girls while the ghetto-fabulous jewelry and ubiquitous red sole really knock a Park Avenue Princess on her toosh.
