WHY WE LOVE IT
Like blossoms pumped up with Miracle-Gro, these exuberant hues entice even those who shy away from paler versions. To add power to this glory, pair pastels with… more pastels!
HOW TO WEAR IT
Because these shades are intense, choose clothes with clean lines, and balance solid on solid. A void neutrals as a base, but rely on them for accessories, especially shoes.
