Get to know:Poppy

Color description: A vibrant spring ready hue, this orange-infused red is happy and universally flattering.

Runway inspiration: Monique Lhuillier

Pair the shade with: 1) Fuchsia; the equally peppy shade makes for an unexpected and modern twist, 2) Salmon; the muted color acts as a neutral to tone down your ensemble, 3) Chocolate; the deeper shade offsets the brightness, and 4) Lime; due to its eye-catching nature, this combo is considered a wild-card pairing—wear both together for an unforgettable look.

Avoid:Orange; a clear distinction between shades needs to be created, and poppy will seem less exciting when paired with such a similar color.
