Making Brights Work For You

0 comments
Want to look like your favorite celebrities when it comes to style? Lately, stars are living up to their names and looking star light and star bright. From New York, to Milan, Paris and most recently Toronto, one thing is clear for Spring fashion: bright, brighter and brightest color-wise is the way to go. A trend that is easily wearable, fresh and flattering? Now there’s a reason to add a little brightness to our days! From daytime, to the office, to a night out and formal, there are a ton of ways to make neons work for you.

Daytime

Daytime casual looks are the easiest to put together with bright colors. The easiest way to go is a bright denim. Jessica Alba has been rocking a an entire spectrum of skinnies lately and it’s making us crave jeans in every color! Pair with chunky platforms, a breezy t-shirt and a blazer in neutral colors to finish this effortless look. Or, if you want to emphasize the trend completely, go full color-block mode with both your skinnies and blazer in different bright colors! We love the mint green and yellow combo, as well as bright blue and pink.

Office

While most offices have become relaxed over the years, the emphasis remains on looking sharp, professional and put together. While we would save the neon bright shirts for a night out, there’s nothing wrong with adding pops of color to an otherwise dull office wardrobe. With ladylike and classic silhouettes returning to the runways as well this season, tying in proper lines and brighter colors is a must. We would suggest a maxi skirt in a bright color, a blouse and a blazer all tied in to pumps with a kitten heel. Professional, proper, and totally business. Who says trendy can’t be fit for a work environment as well?

Night Out

Neon to a club that isn’t a rave? Why yes! There are two approaches when it comes to the bright edge and a classy night look: flowy or tailored. We love the look of a bright mini dress under a flowy sheer maxi, a loose tucked-in tank or a sequined/embellished top to pull it all together. A neon clutch and bright heels make for a spring look that will pop when the sun goes down. Or, if your style is less romantic and more edgy, you can go sharp and geometric with a neon sheath that’s structured and bright heels. Top with slicked back hair and your look will be avant garde with a side of amazing.

The Romantic Look:

1) Zara Long Skirt with Splits in Coral

2) Zara Top with Sequins in Ecru

3) Steve Madden Color block Heels

The Edgy Look:

2) Topshop Stare2 Platform Pointed Courts in Fluro Yellow 

Formal

For a black tie occasion such as a wedding or gala, why not try the bright trend mixed with formal wear? There is no shortage of stunning gowns in electric hues to choose from, and celebs have shown us that bright can be elegant and stunning on the red carpet! When wearing a gown in a eye-catching color, stick to toned natural make-up and either slicked back hair or a simple down-do to keep things minimal and all attention on your show-stopping dress. A bright colored dress, plus heavy and harsh make-up and a complicated hairdo on top of it all would take things from fresh and forward to forced and frivolous. Streamlined is definitely the way to go!
