Ways to Wear Bold Colour

As we all know, spring is about colour, colour and more colour. This spring, its all about bright red, sky blue, golden orange, honeysuckle pink and seafoam green. For a few tips on how to wear these vibrant hues, read on.

Bright Red
If you’ve got the confidence to pull off rarin’ red, go for it! Pair a loose-fitting, relaxed red dress with a brown, leather belt é  la Lanvin. If this seems like a bit much, try a pair of red shorts with a white skirt. Whatever you do, however, don’t try to match your red shorts with your red shoes with your red lipstick.

Sky Blue

This spring, sky blue is refreshing, soothing and, most definitely, in. Best of all, its easy to wear. At Diane von Furstenberg and Zac Posen, silky, sky blue trousers were paired with neutral tops. However, a blue cardigan or shirt from J. Crew can be just as fresh.

Golden Orange

We know, orange can be overwhelming. So, keep things simple with an orange belt or a pair of shoes with orange detailing? Looking for something a little quirkier? For the weekend, layer an orange cardigan over a yellow top. Or a yellow cardigan over an orange top. (Tory Burch did this perfectly!)

Honeysuckle Pink

This colour was all over the spring runways, including at Nina Ricci and Jil Sander. For a vibrant look, pair honeysuckle pink with other spring hues like yellow, orange and lime green “ but don’t overdo it! Instead, pick just two colours and block them, so to speak. This means one on the top, one on the bottom.

Seafoam Green 

If you’ve never worn seafoam green, you should. Not only does it look good on just about anyone, but it makes you stand out! This spring, pair a seamfoam green skirt “ short or long! “ with a white top. Or, find a pair of seafoam green earrings or shoes.
