Shocking bursts of color brighten up otherwise-mundane palettes. Red gloves add a burst of blush to austere grays (Trina Turk, left) red belts brighten up earthy patterns (Geren Ford, middle), and vivid red tights add immediate flair to any look (Bill Tornade, bottom right). The look works the other way around, too. Black tights and belts tone down lively patterns (David Meister, top right).

Mixing color is one way to create a unique style; mixing materials as well offers even more exciting options. Touches of bright colors, paired with a patterned dress, leather vest, and muted leggings and scarf create an eye-catching look that is truly one of a kind (Tom K. Nguyen, left). Sticking with a muted palette, a pleated skirt paired with layered blouses of varying materials offers a different kind of mix-up that is equally unique. (Anne Valerie Hash, middle). The simple black dress is updated with a textured leopard print vest (Alexander Wang, middle).

Accessories and eye-catching accents top off any look. When looking to “mix it up”, accessories are a must-have. Long chains or strings of beads offer opportunity for increased expression to ensembles that are already highly personalized (H. Fredriksson, left) (Trina Turk, right). For subtler looks, gems and flowing ruffles also offer opportunity for expression (Didier/Angelo, upper middle) (Rory Beca, lower middle).
