In fact, bold hues are a trend that most people are still afraid of, probably because they picture something that looks very alternative. But this look, even though it’s made of ruby red and grape purple, looks very polished. The secret is in the contrast, the placement, and the structure. With these three elements in balance you can make any color look high class. Click through to learn more. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →
