Clinton finds the separation

Secretary Clinton spoke at the African Growth and Opportunity Forum last week. She wore a gold suit:

This is a lot of one color, especially one that's so close to her skin tone. What makes the outfit work? The accessories!
  • The chunky necklace in a darker color creates a strong visual separation between her skin and her outfit. The length of the necklace is just right too - wearing large beads too tight around the neck will make you look like you're choking, even if it doesn't feel that way. This is particularly important for women of a certain age, who tend to have looser skin on their necks.
  • The jaunty pocket square helps break up the solid color further down the outfit.
