Runway for Less: 2011 NYFW Bold-Color Fashion

One of the many fashion trends at 2011′s NYFW was bold colors. My favorite examples of bold colors came from the runways of Jenni Kayne, Costello Tagliapietra, and Rebecca Taylor. Get the easy-to-replicate looks yourself by checking out my guides below. Just wear all neutral-colored pieces (i.e. black, gray, cream, or navy) and add one pop of color (i.e. fuchsia, orange, or rose). Make the look your own by changing up your pop of color with other colors like teal, amethyst, or crimson.
