Make a Stylish Move in Color- Kirsten Dunst Did, Here’s how you can too…
I’ll Have What She’s Having: A burst of stylish color in my wardrobe because THIS yellow is far from mellow!
Last week actress Kirsten Dunst worked one of the season’s most vibrant trends while donning head-to-toe monochromatic color in Stella McCartney separates and looked all the more put together for it.
While making her stand out from the crowd in a dinner ready suit, Dunst’s outfit also elongates her look while giving off a polished sense of maturity that should serve as a guide as to how girls in their early 30′s should consider dressing.

What made it work and saved it from making her look like a marigold column were effortless styling tricks and a restrained hand at pairing the look together.
When going monochrome, keep these tips in mind:
- Look for a suit with contrast like Dunst’s who’s pants have a delicate pattern on them
- Start the look off with a neutral, classic minded foundation like the actress’s white blouse
- Keep accessories & your beauty routine simple and on the traditional side as to keep the eye focused on how the color of your outfit highlights your face
- Show some skin and look for breaks at the neckline and pant hem to keep you looking long and lean
