I tend to lean towards black and neutrals when I dress almost always, but Jil Sander’s Spring/Summer 2011 Collection made me rethink color and bold stripes for Spring. I actually bought a practically neon-orange linen button down a few weeks ago from J.Crew just to test out color to see if we “go” together. The jury is still out because it’s been freezing in Chicago and pale skin and neon orange really don’t mix!!
One place I’m not afraid of color and stripes is in whimsical kitchenware for casual dinners or outdoor parties. The Jil Sander Collection inspired me to go bold or go home!
