Outfit of the Week: Uptown Modern


J.Crew's navy cotton café trouser anchors bright hues, like the watermelon shade of this Saint Laurent clutch and the soft coral of this bias-draped top. Then take the palette down to a darker tone; pick up Nars 413 Blkr lipstick in a semi-matte deep-oxblood color or Zara's quilted satin heel in the same shade, both perfect transitional items as you begin to plan your wardrobe for fall.
