Would You Wear It?: Harlequin Print
When it comes to the harlequin trend, there's a thin line between looking like a court jester and looking splendidly offbeat. The bold hues and large pattern of Lily Allen's YSL skirt, for example, are too costumey. On the other hand, Mary-Kate Olsen's bolero, though equally colorful, works fine because of the smaller print.
To be safe, we suggest rocking the diamond motif in a darker, more subtle palette like Joss Stone's purple-and-black dress. We bet no one mistook her for a clown in that glam, shimmery number.
