The difference now is that there's less focus on color blocking. Clothes and accessories in the same palette are fall's newest BFFs. Invest in one intense shade-whether it be emerald, fuchsia, scarlet, or canary-and then work it as hard as a thief with an alibi. Don't hold back. HOW TO WEAR ITIgnore the old finger-wagging for going matchy-matchy. To safeguard against overkill, reveal a hint of skin: It could be a bare shoulder (see Prabal Gurung's romantic one-shoulder dress) or legs sheathed with black sheers (rather than opaque tights). Resist pairing with neutrals like gray or beige (too safe and too '90s). And punctuate your glow with a poppy-red lip.
