Black and white is timeless. Keep in mind, however, wearing too much black can create a harsh contrast that emphasizes unwanted shadows and wrinkles.  Concentrating on white in your outfit will add a lively color to your complexion. Here, showing off your figure with skinny jeans and a well-tailored jacket equals a look that's current and fashionable.

The most effortless way to look on-trend is as simple as adding color while minimizing fuss.  Jewel tones flatter nearly every skin tone. Colors like turquoise, especially near the face, will lessen the washed out effect.  So throw out your Mother’s rules!   You have the right to wear bright colors and drape yourself in the hues of summer.
