Amal Clooney Shows Us Why Bold Color Trumps A LBD

Wearing bright colors can be intimidating, but on the right piece a bold hue has the power to quickly become one of your favorite go-to outfits for a night on the town. Case in point: Amal Clooney’s head-turning minidress. She paired her kelly green Versace frock with monochromatic strappy sandals, glamorous chandelier earrings and her signature voluminous locks. The key to keeping this ensemble chic is to opt for a classic silhouette and wear minimal makeup. Do not—we repeat—do not go heavy on eye shadow or highly pigmented lipstick. Instead, choose a simple berry gloss and swipe of black mascara to allow the statement hue to steal the show.

Of course, the perfect LBD is clearly a universal wardrobe staple, but if you want to amp up your vibe this fall, step out of your comfort zone and opt for a saturated shade instead.
