As they say, Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, and in our opinion, this heat definitely proves summer's arrived. ☀️ This week, were focusing on the colors of summer, with bright pops, staples, and accessories. There's a way to do brights in the summer time without it being obnoxious or too neon, and we're here to show you how. 💓
We're ready for beach days, summer cocktail parties, and bright nights out, and we know you are too. 😘🍹🍉
Hot Brights can be hard to pull off, but when it's done right it can make for an amazing, eye-catching outfit (especially with a nice summer sun tan 😉). Try balancing out a striking color like hot pink, orange, or yellow with a calming print. Soft florals or paisleys can help tie together brights in an outfit, as can pairing a hot bright with a neutral, white or black.
Incorporating brights into different patterns doesn't always have to be boldly tropical. If you're timid, try a brighter tribal print. We love this tribal print sundress, it's subtle yet has all the colors of summer, evened out with a neutral contrast. The back is a racerback with a lace up detail to add just a little extra cuteness. 💗 Sundresses are a summer go to, because they are lightweight and leave very little outfit planning; less stress for you. 😘
Brights with Blues is perfect for a casual, everyday outfit too. We love the way this printed floral cold shoulder ties brights in with tiny flower print. The back has a tie detail feature as well, making for a more open shirt on the back and sleeves. It's an easy, breezy look we love. 💙
When dressing in vibrant brights, you don't want to accessorize with them too heavily. This could cause a major color overload. Try more dainty, simple, light pieces. Using more dulled colors in jewelry, or just simple silvers and golds, can make for a great complement with a bright outfit, as they stand solidly against them. ✨
