We’d like to put one major fashion rumor to rest for good: You do not have to wear dark colors in the fall and winter. Need a little proof? Allow us to present style icon Freida Pinto, who showed once and for all that turquoise is just as fabulous in November as it is in August.

Attending a private dinner hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue fashion director Roopal Patel in Los Angeles Tuesday night, Freida was positively dazzling in a ruffled, high-neck turquoise shift. She completed the ensemble with nude accessories, allowing the bright, beautiful dress to take center stage.

Though Freida, whose new Showtime mini-series Guerrilla premieres next year, was out in Beverly Hills — where the weather is significantly warmer than in most other parts of the country — you could still wear this frock on a fall evening in a chillier state. Simply pair it with tights and a long overcoat, or with boots and a leather jacket for an edgier take. Its high neckline will keep out any cool breezes that blow your way, too!
