Pair a colorful dress with neutral-colored accessories

"Colorful, short dresses are hot this season, and stars around the world are rocking fun frocks in bold hues. But when you're dressed in a bright little number, picking out the appropriate accessories can be a challenge.

Instead of searching high and low for the perfect complementary shade, why not pair your get-up with neutral-colored accents?

Unlike black, which can seem too formal for a daytime or casual affair, and white, which may feel too stark, beige is a wonderful tone that can match any bright-colored fabric you happen to find.

Eva Longoria Parker recently stepped out at The First Annual Benefit Hosted by Los Angeles Nomadic Division, wearing a cobalt blue frock. The Desperate Housewife paired the bold-colored short dress with a tan clutch and heels.

Meanwhile, halfway across the globe at the Ischia Global Film and Music Festival in Italy, Heather Graham donned a strapless fuchsia number with beige strappy sandals.

Beige is a perfect accent color for bold summer brights, and the neutral hue will also look smashing against rich autumnal shades and cool winter tones."

Beige is a great color that works with dresses that are hard to match.
