I once heard on some HGTV design show that in order to successfully incorporate an accent color into a room, the color should appear in three places. I’ve never personally tested that theory, but it seems true. When working with the decreased surface area of an outfit, on the other hand, that number can be decreased to two; a single note of color can feel random or ill-conceived, but if you can pick up that color in a second, more subtle place in your ensemble, you’re on the way to success. That’s where Miu Miu, Marni and our latest edition of Perfect Pairs comes in.

It would be a bit much if both the bag and the earrings were the same solid color, but the tie-dye effect on the Marni pair’s resin panels tempers the potentially match-y look. There are several shades of blue to be seen here (in addition to the shades of gold), and one of them happens to coordinate well with the Miu Miu’s dominant leather color. On the bag’s gussets, you get a more traditional navy color, and when taken as a whole, these two pieces set you up with a nice color palette within which to complete your look.
