Break out of the box! Try a soft silhouette
A single red piece is a great pick-me-up for most skin tones. "I dress to stand out at auditions, but I want to be relaxed, too," says actress Quinn Miles, 26—which is why this crimson goddess-style tunic (Marina Rinaldi, $665) earns a "bravo" from her. Proportion matters: The top's silky sash gently outlines the bust and enhances a curvy waist, while black leggings (Eileen Fisher, $88) and ballet flats (Cole Haan) complete the full-top, lean-bottom silhouette.
