This spring is all about vibrant shades and patterns. When wearing a bright-hued item, it is good to compliment it with a neutral piece, to make a statement without clashing or being distracting.
Stripes are a fabulous way to add interest to an outfit. Simple yet chic, the pattern is very classic and cute. Pair a bold colored skirt, like Modcloth’s Tiger Lilies skirt, with a striped top for a cute early summer look. Adding bold jewelry like beaded earrings, a cute wrist cuff or a bohemian-inspired necklace add drama to the look, taking the outfit from simple to sassy.
Sandals are a must when the weather gets warm. Anthropologie has a cute pair of brown leather slides, for just $70. When going open-toed, however, don’t forget the pedicure. Orange is a great shade of nail polish that adds a glow to any complexion.
No outfit is complete without jewelry and a cute handbag. Accessorizing is a simple form of self expression, and while matching is good, bringing in bright colored items like a patterned straw purse or bright blue earrings completes a look.
Jessica Alba was recently spotted wearing bold orange while out with her daughter. She kept it simple with a white button-down nylon tank and minimal jewelry.
