|Only if you're an on-trend Satyr.|
Many of the closets I visit are devoid of color. For whatever reason color is a little scary, slightly impractical, or just plain confusing. Good news: if you've been avoiding color for the past few years then you have the perfect base wardrobe to support a few new acquisitions in this year's eye-popping palette.
Here are some approachable, practical ways to incorporate bright color in to your spring/summer looks:
- Bring it down a notch: mix brights with solid neutrals like khaki, navy, gray and olive
- Stick to accessories: if you're really spooked, save the color for bags, shoes, and jewelry
- Go muted: your color story doesn't have to be super-bright - softer hues like aquamarine, lavender, and orange sherbert are colors too
I have loads of shopping suggestions. Here they are:
|Pair this soft orange with a white tank and a neutral or brown shoe. So breezy! From Urban Outfitters.|
|Juicy stripes on this Nine West clutch.|
|How 'bout this with white jeans and a simple gray T? Other colors available at Old Navy.|
|Lots of bold prints out there this season. This one is a bit more restrained, but super-fun. From local designer Garnish.|
|This is a tough color next to the face ... so fab on the foot! From J.Crew.|
|Colorful and comfortable ... gosh I love these. Find 'em at Zappos.|
I'm hoping the color trend is here to stay for a while. (Giant, neon goat-boy shoes, not so much.) It certainly makes the shops prettier for browsing and sunny days look a little sunnier.
