Which colour to choose: Gem Tones (deep reds, purples, blues, darker greens) - For summer 2012, can go with lighter colours
What to wear it with: Pair with neutral tops (black, white etc) and either black pumps, booties or simple flats/loafers for a more casual look
When to wear it:

For a day look: wear with neutral/tan knits and loafers - add a multi-tone scarf to complete the look
Ps: when dealing with colour, it is important to balance out bold colour with neutrals - and the opposite holds true as well, when wearing neutrals, it is important to add pops of colour to create a balanced look
