This week's Goldman Sachs hearings got plenty of play on late night television in part because of some of the colorful language the senators chose to quote in their questioning.

Senator McCaskill gives a great example of how blondes can wear bold colors by use of color blocking. Her black jacket is broken up by the white facing on the stand up collar and red cuffs. The red top is broken up by the chunky white necklace. Creating variation in this way keeps her from being overwhelmed by color saturation. This look is very successful for a high-profile day.
