These colors seem intimdating at first and might be even down right scary to try and match with other clothing and accessories. Once you get over your fear, or keep reading on, you'll see how unscary and really fun playing with bright colors is. As we get closer and closer to spring stores are putting out brighter and brighter clothing. This is the best time to head to a Zara or Topshop to try on this trend for less.
The whole idea is to color block and to use bright on bright colors and to even mix in some neutrals or duller accessories to bring it together like in the first set (1st on the left). When pairing bright top like a coral top with a brighter bottom like the Zara Colorful Skirt in turquiose ($39.90) try to blend to use white and neutrals. The Aldo shoes and bag help tone down the brightness of the outfit. Also the color blocking in the shoe gives the shoe a little bit up spice but without being total over kill.
Bright colored accessories can be paired with brightly colored clothing. Try pairing a coral dress like the Nasty Gal Serious Flare Dress (last on the right $48) with a brightly colored bag like the Forever21 Date Night Leatherette Bag ($21). When pairing colors you can try to keep them in the same family: coral, oranges, and yellows can all be paired with each other.
If your scared of going to bright do a dull orange pair of pants and pair it up with a mellow yellow top like the second set to the right. To keep with the mellow bright colors flowing do a blush pink bag like the Forever21 Buckle Cross-Body Bag ($20). Spice up the whole outfit with red pumps like the Topshop GLAM Red Suede Court Shoe ($90). Red's will always make an outfit pop.
You can also do one bright piece of clothing with one bright accessory. If you do a bright pink pants like the ASOS pink skinny pants (3rd from the right $63) pick a shirt in the same family color in a mute tone. Use an accessory like a shoe or a bag to color block with the your bright piece of clothing.
This spring trend is very exciting and so much fun to play around with. This is the season to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. What do you guys think of this trend?
