Dyer communicates with color

Jane Dyer won the Democratic nomination this week in the House race in South Carolina's 3rd district. She shot a campaign video on the campus of Clemson University:

I love the way she uses color in this outfit. The orange blouse is an overt nod to Clemson (she's an alumna). The intensity of the color could overwhelm her, but it's covered enough by her jacket to balance the look. Her suit is a cool stone beige - perfect for a hot southern climate and incredibly elegant on a tall woman. It also fits her really well, which is so important.

My only concern is, well, is she wearing socks? White socks? In general, hosiery should match your pants or skirt, but in the case of white and cream, it's usually better to break that rule and go for something "nude" color.
