How many colors can you wear without looking color schizophrenic? We managed to work with nine (black, red, royal blue, mustard, white, orange, teal, and purple) in a single look that is cohesive in its singular focus on color. This study in color is accented by the schoolgirl pleated skirt and the geek chic glasses, but this look will take you anywhere but the library.
1. Start with a colorful striped sweater, paired with a pleated skirt. Notice how the brights in sweater are made even more vibrant by the springy green skirt.
2. Royal blue heels provide a solid foundation for the look and pick up on the blue in the sweater.
3. Add a bit more color with your handbag - a colorblocked purse in orange, purple, and teal extends the look even further on the color wheel.
PS: Geek chic classes - optional, but we love the look.
