When we think of the color yellow, we think of sunshine, spring days, and everything light and bright. Needless to say, our minds don't immediately jump to edgy. While certainly not one of the easier colors to pull off, Naomie Harris does so seamlessly in "Naomie's Moment" in our December issue. And Reader of the Week, Lauren Potter, not only managed to channel Harris's look, but also added her own daring twist. "Naomie looks effortlessly chic with just a hint of untouchable cool," says Potter. "I was inpired to try wearing yellow, wide-leg trousers, but added some edgy elements to make it fit my personal style." Potter's choker and leather toughen up the sunny bottom half, but still works as a cohesive look. Our inner emo kid is swooning.
