Bold Bright Spring

Spring is definitely in the air. Although I adore all the vibrant flowers now, I am slightly shy wearing super bright colors. I do love to buy colorful pieces but I rarely wear them.
The other night at the Elle & Armani Fashion Event, Elle style director Kate Lanphear paired a bright fuchsia pink dress with bright turquoise clutch. I usually will pair a bright piece with neutral color shoes and bag. The whole outfit just works beautifully in a bold stylish fashion.  The model had a pair of heel on with fuchsia and turquoise colors.
I am so going to wear this bright yellow with turquoise this summer. I know I must have pieces of fuchsia somewhere in the closet too.
Back in the days, I would totally pair bright color accessories with white or neutral color clothing. Now, I can think outside of the box. Have you paired bright colors together before, and what is your favorite color combo?

  7. I love bright colors, but rarely wear two at once.

    These tops are really cute, especially the yellow. I hope you'll post photos of yourself as you experiment with brights this spring.

  15. i love the first shot!

    i think you could wear bright colors. just start out slowly. i had to do the same, and i also used to be afraid of patterns. it isn't so bad if you go slowly, and if you just make sure to wear colors that flatter your skin tone! :)

  20. love this idea to pair brights with brights - just brilliant! I would have thought like you too to go neutral. I think magenta and yellow would work nicely,

  25. I really love Kate's bright pink and turquoise color combo- that is probably my favorite combo. I think I love the pairing because those colors remind me of this book cover of a book that I really loved growing up :) Hope you can come to my slumber party! xo, mel
