As a Florida girl, I have a sincere love of bright colors. I think that if you can mix 3 or 4 (or 10) in an outfit you have a fun, eye-catching and girly summer look. I love the pinks, blues, greens and purples in this Kate Spade shirt. I wore it in a recent post with a much more casual vibe. Mixing a fun bright top with some denim is an easy way to dress down this colorful vibe as seen in my Kate Spade or Monet post. Here I chose a giant poufy midi skirt and some casual summer heels for a fun and girly look that can be good for work, brunch or even a party.
I think the key to wearing brights is to go with neutral accessories, as I did here with muted brown leathers. It is also fun to pull a key color to highlight for the whole look, as I did with the pink. But ultimately I am a huge fan of experimentation. This shirt is a peplum so I wasn’t sure it would fall nicely under the skirt, but when I tried it you couldn’t even tell! I think summer brights are a fun way to add some spark to your wardrobe, and encourage everyone to experiment a little with them to find new combos that you love and that work for you! What are you favorite seasonal colors?
