Go beyond the typical neutrals

You killed your waiting time at the hairdresser, spa, you name it, by reading one of the magazines laying around. Your eye caught an article that talked about leather jackets and that you should go beyond just black and spice up your style with a colored motorcycle jacket. After the appointment, on your way to the parking deck you saw a sales rack with a pink motorcycle jacket. For fun you tried it on. It was a perfect fit and you looked great with your dark jeans, black pumps, white T-shirt, new haircut and that pink hide. You were feeling good, you loved what you saw and the price was right. So you gave the jacket a new home in your closet.
