    Take, for example, the recent look Jaime King put together. Spotted running errands in Beverly Hills two months ago, the actress caught our eye in Juicy Couture’s Polka Dot Silk Blouse ($145) in Seaside/Angel paired with a Rodarte for Opening Ceremony leather skirt, Prada Sunglasses ($290), Henri Bendel’s Saddlery Ostrich Crossbody Bag ($240) in Yellow, and Vince Camuto flats. The outfit works on two levels: the combination of cobalt blue, lemon yellow, and burgundy is striking, but not overwhelming, and the casual bag and shoes keep the skirt from feeling fussy.

    Bag: Go bold with a bright bag. A color like yellow pops against the blue top and burgundy skirt, making it the focal point of the look.
