Yesterday I visited the Lincoln Park Conservatory in Chicago and the plants were too beautiful not to share!
Even more eye catching than the vibrant pink is the amazing texture of this flower. When assembling an outfit remember that visual interest is not only about bold patterns and bright colors, but also about silhouette and texture.
This array of plants had great pattern mixing as well as fun colors in unexpected combinations. It is amazing how perfect two pieces can look next to each other even when they both are quite bold. Although some credit must be given to the more neutral plant in the front that helps ground the grouping.

While we may not feel quite as daring in our color and pattern choices as these tropical plants, keep them in mind as inspiration the next time you are reaching for an all black ensemble.
