Fashion Week: Will work in Washington?

For our third edition of our “Will it work in Washington?” take on New York Fashion week, we look to the fall 2012 collection of Diane von Furstenberg.

Designer Diane von Furstenberg and creative director Yvan Mispelaere brought a bouquet of vibrant color to a series of fall collections heavy with dark hues. And while fashion-backward Washingtonians might balk at wearing a lime green top over plum pants, other von Furstenberg ensembles — like this relatively subdued pink pearl jacket and slacks, which get a boost from a lipstick-red turtleneck — could transition nicely from a confirmation hearing to a KenCen concert.

Would it work in Washington? Our bet: YES. Cast your vote in the poll below.

TIP: The sexy suede ankle-strap pumps won’t work in the corner office. But definitely don them for an evening out.
