Color Therapy: How to Wear Brights

by Skinnypurse

Are you comfortable wearing bright colors? Is your closet filled with garments in varying shades of black and grey? Or, does it more closely resemble a rainbow? Some people shy away from bright colors, but they can actually work really well when paired with the right items. Neutrals like beige and caramel perfectly compliment the boldness of a bright hue.

DKNY Coral Blouse With Ruffle

Universally flattering, Coral is a bright, cheerful color. I love this pretty peachy coral blouse from DKNY right down to it’s feminine ruffle. It is a great blouse because it can be worn casually (as seen below) and it can also be dressed up with a pencil skirt for the office. See how you can take a bright item, like this coral blouse, and build a Spring outfit around it that even the most color-shy can be comfortable in.

DKNY Coral Blouse With Ruffle La Mer Collections Snake Wrap Watch Inhabit Slim Cardigan
James Jeans Trumph Tapered Leg Trousers
Coach Maleena Wedge Sandal ALDO Niesen Straw Flap Across Body Bag

1) DKNY Rouge Blouse With Ruffle ($160)

2, 3 & 4) Gold jewelry, like Gorjana’ Arc Hoops ($60) and Chloe Ring ($95) bring out the richness in the caramel accents and pair so well with brights. The caramel color La Mer Collections Snake Wrap Watch ($100) echos both the color of the clutch, and picks up on the blouse color as well.

5) A soft, oatmeal colored cardigan like this one by Inhabit ($288) can be worn over the blouse when temps get chilly.

6) Straw is big for spring and summer, and the ALDO Niesen Flap Across Body Bag ($62.76) has a soft weave, making the bag appropriate for day and evening.

7) Slim fitting chinos like the James Jeans Trumph Tapered Leg Trousers ($172) offer a flattering fit in a casual look. The pants can be worn long or rolled up to be cropped.

8) Finish the outfit with a pair of wedge sandals like the Maleena by Coach ($198) Bold but not at all chunky, I love the sexy ankle strap. Plus, get free shipping on these!

What do you think? Do you like to wear brights? Or are you more of a neutral-palette person?
