The runway: Ivana Helsinki
The look: A nice change of pace from the frilly styles and muted tones of the fall, splashes of bright color are making bold statements this season. This graphic trend works its magic by pairing either contrasting primary colors or complimentary jewel tones — a sophisticated shout-out to the '60s and '80s.
Why it works: The pure geometry of the solid shapes creates an incredible visual that can also be used to camouflage problem areas while calling attention to one's best body parts.
Best bet: This lightweight jewel-toned sweater from A.L.C. is a perfect match for a solid colored skirt or trouser. $295; alcltd.com for stores.
