Ask the MB: Muted Color Palette

Ask the MB: Muted Color Palette
Q: How does the MB approach color? Not as a seasonal rule, but in general, does the MB embrace color, or shy away? I've been using color mostly in accents and smaller articles of clothing, leaving the main pieces to neutral color palettes. Is this the way to go?

A: Matt, you've basically got it, except for the part about color in accents and smaller articles of clothing. Just look at how these MBs keep their palette simple and almost completely devoid of color.
