Wearing Colors: Do's and DON'Ts
Note to Bright Colors:
Now that summer is in full swing, it is tempting to wear you to match the bright weather. I love to wear vibrant colors, they accent a tan, and somehow put me in a better mood. It is just important to remember to not wear every color of the rainbow at once, whilst matching purses, shoes, and even hair to this color scheme. I promise to wear you often this summer, but I will be careful to not look like the girls above.
Note to Readers:
Now is the time to break out the bold hues that you have stuffed in back of your closet. Summer is the time to get courageous when integrating color into your wardrobe. Here are a few helpful hints to keep you from looking like a reject from the Rainbow Brite fan club. Don't be afraid of bright colors, some of my favorite shades of this season are "highlighter" inspired hues of yellow, green, pink and blue. (They are neon versions of these colors that look like highlighter ink) Just try to use the brightest color of your outfit as an accent color. Also, if you have a really bright top on, balance it out with white, black or denim on the bottom, and vice versa. When wearing a colorful dress, throw caution to the wind, wear it confidently and you will look fabulous. (just don't over-accessorize like Lily Allen and her friend in the above picture) Most importantly, have fun with your outfit choices, life is too short for boring clothes!
