A Chic & Easy Trick For Breaking Out Of Your Cocktail Frock Rut

Check out Anna Kendrick on the red carpet at the premiere of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World earlier this week, wearing an adorable cocktail dress by Marchesa, with a totally unexpected accessory--bright yellow Jimmy Choo shoes!

And if you go bold with an unexpected color combination of your own at your next big party, I doubt anyone will be able to resist telling you how chic you are. Here are a few we really dig.
