LIKE A LOT OF WOMEN, I take comfort in solid hues. They are safe and always flatter. The downside: How many black sweaters does a girl really need? This season is all about fresh starts. Begin yours by stepping beyond your comfort zone with one or two totally outside-the-box pieces—a blazer in a graphic print, a loud-and-proud statement necklace. You'll be amazed how they transform your wardrobe—and your outlook. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @nicolettemason for more plus-size tips!
