How to wear it
Channel your inner Queen or Aristocratic Vampire (whatever floats your boat). Keep in mind that there’s no such thing as “over doing it” in this brave, baroque new world. Opt for heels, exaggerated collars, frills around your wrists, jeweled headbands, dresses with wallpaper patterns, silk scarves, leather pants, geometric silhouettes, and red lips.
- Deep Plum
