South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley spoke at an award ceremony for volunteers last week. She wore cream: http://youtu.be/t5i0YdCv1AA?t=1m20s
Light creamy colors can be difficult to pull off, especially on camera. But this jacket looks great. Why?
1. Cream can make some people look washed out, but the governor's skin tone naturally lends itself to this color.
2. The texture and color variation that this tweed fabric lends to the look, along with the organic folds of the draped collar, prevent the light color from looking severe or reflective.
3. This video was taken in a natural setting, without glaring television studio lights.
