Therefore, you should incorporate bright and clear colors and patterns more and more, but don’t suddenly make your clothes gorgeous. However, earrings are easy to incorporate, and since the area is small, it is difficult to make a mistake even if you choose a bold design.It also has the effect of making your complexion, which tends to be dull, brighter,” explains Shiino.
