If your closet has become a washed-out mix of neutrals, grays, and everyone's favorite inky standby, it might be time to pop some color in your clothing. Actually, it is time. We love a little black dress as much as..well, everyone, but we can't live a monochromatic life, and quite frankly, neither should you. We spotted this hot look in Chicago, and thought she looked so pixel-perfect that we're making an example of her—in a good way. This bold color works because it's styled properly, letting a bright dress be the center of attention without totally muting everyone else at the party, or coming off as clownish. Read on for our version of this colorful stroke of genius, and give your style a much-needed dose of the bright side.
