Best Bet: Complementary Colors


Forget the old fashion rules, it's time to embrace one of the chicest color combinations out there: black and navy blue. Sure, it may sound like a painful bruise, but the two hues together are actually quite easy on the eyes. Club Monaco's new Jen clutch is covered entirely in sequins, half with shiny jet-black paillettes and half with smaller dark-blue discs. The folded envelope shape is comfortable to carry and holds quite a bit more than the average evening bag. Wear this sparkly clutch with a simple black dress for a glamorous and unexpected nighttime look.
