The Challenge: Trend Benders
Pick your favourite Summer or Fall 2012 trend and make it work for you, whether it's going all-out, incorporating it into a professional outfit or using it in moderation. For example - how would you bend this neon brights trend into something in sync with your personal style? Challenge yourself - you might even take something you think would never work on you and get creative!
For this challenge, I decided to go with Burgundy (which seemed to photograph red but is a deeper, darker shade in real life) and Leopard. When burgundy hit the mags as fall's "it" color, I was a little puzzled on how to mix it with non-neutral items. So what did I do? I went for a work-appropriate look and made a burgundy sheath dress (inspired by the stylish P of Phiphis' Blog) paired with leopard (inspired by Ping's awesome burgundy incorporation post) & neutral accessories.
