Pretty Bright

Sometimes, all you need is a pop of color to brighten your day. So I was happy to see so many bright colors on the runway for spring. Sure, some are terrified to don shades of hot pink or chartreuse. I, in fact, went through a short-lived “serious” phase where the only colors I wore were shades of black and gray. Then I remembered my love for all things colorful! Here are a few lovelies that might have you stepping out into a world of color – and some tips to keep you looking fabulous while doing it.

Take a Clue from Mother Nature

She always pairs brights with a neutral. Bold colors look sophisticated when paired with black, brown, cream and olive.

Stick to a Classic Silhouette

A simple tailored frock and black heels is the easiest way to pull of bright hues.


Still unsure about a wardrobe filled with lime green or electric blue? Grab a colorful accessory to compliment your basics. It’s a clever and affordable way to make your closet dollars stretch while adding some much needed cheer to your day!

  1. Love that necklace! I am not a fan of bright colors but I have been seen about town donning a brightly colored scarf, over my black & grey of course 🙂 Thanks for posting!
