We have had some pretty unbelievable weather in California this past week- I mean 75 degrees in January… is the universe confused on its seasons or did we miss Winter? Our condolences to those of you struggling in snow boots and North Face- good for you really because us California girls are just not cut out for that. Anyways, for the time being, we are so grateful for the beautiful weather. And of course beautiful weather always means beautiful bold colors.
When wearing brighter colors women always worry about two things: 1. I wont look good in that color or 2. It’s simply not appropriate for the season.
UMMMM seriously you’re WRONG. Here’s why: On the topic of picking brighter colors that compliment your skin tone- yes, we will acknowledge not every color looks incredible on everyone but we assure you, you will find a bright color that you CAN wear. The hardest part about a bold piece is that you are going to make a statement- do not shy away from this! You have an opportunity to stand out and truly express yourself through your clothing. Once you find a color you enjoy, the best accessory you can pair it with in confidence (cliche yes, but ohhh so true).
The same can be said for wearing bolder pieces for colder seasons- every women in the fall or winter always looks for black, grey, navy and oh gosh if they are daring they just may wear burgundy. Pair a brighter piece with a neutral as Danielle did here- it doesn’t look overwhelming and still looks carefree and chic. Obviously if it is snowing where you are shorts are probably not fun. We would recommend a bright pair of pants with layering or simply a brighter coat.
Here, Danielle pairs two bright pieces: sunglasses and skort with neutral accents: jean jacket (vintage by the way- so cool right?) and shoes. The sweater really brings the outfit together and makes it cohesive.
In our hearts we believe any great outfit is not complete without a pair of killer shoes. We are seriously obsessing over these snakeskin heels from Kelsi Dagger. We’re totally in love with this brand!!!
Bold, Bright colors are meant to be fun and bring liveliness to your outfit. Remember to be confident and own it! Share with us your favorite bright pieces!
Be Bold, Be Beautiful, BE YOU!
