We love bright and bold ⠀ ⠀
Don’t shy away from adding bright pieces to your wardrobe. With some style guidance, you can work these pieces into any season. Learning how to style brightly-coloured outfits can really bring your personal style to life.
There are a few considerations when styling bright pieces. You want to be sure that it compliments:⠀ ⠀
Body shape⠀ Skin tone⠀ Height⠀ Accessories⠀ Day/Night looks ⠀
The seasons⠀ Make-up Patterns Formal/Informal Personal style
We’ve got a few ideas.
Brights go well with structured patterns like polka dots and stripes.⠀ ⠀
•••Adding white or black often works well too. If you’ve got paler skin, dark statement jewellery would look amazing!⠀ ⠀
•••Match it with another colour using a triadic or complementary colour scheme. For instance, wear a purple or pink blazer on an orange blouse.⠀ ⠀
We asked our Instagram friends about how they would style a bright outfit.
Social Media Consultant, Suz Bird, tells us,
“I like to keep my bright colours to one or two key pieces in any outfit; for instance colourful top/ blazer with black or blue jeans. My skin tone can’t handle some colours around my face, so I would use those in accessories (like handbag or belt) or shoes.”
A combination of accessories and using darker, solid colours work well for Suz.
This Stylishly Me blog also has some great ideas such as selecting colours from the same palette.
