Subtle sparkle

Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs Maria Otero led a panel discussion earlier this week for LGBT Pride Month.

She wore magenta:

This deep, clear, cool color is perfect for Ms. Otero's olive skin tone. But what I like best about this jacket is the very subtle sparkle it has, courtesy of some silver threads woven in to it. They add dimension and sophistication to the look, without crossing the line into evening wear (which is always a risk when you add shine or sparkle).

  1. Very interesting. On TV it makes the fabric look textual, like raw silk.
