Don’t ever let anybody tell you that bright and bold colors cannot also be chic and sophisticated! As with any image you try to project, it’s all in the cut and quality of your clothes, as well as the styling of your outfit. Let’s see what happens when a bright green is paired with gray… […]

the official start of summer
