Brightening Up Your Closet

We talked a few weeks ago about how tie dye was one of this summer’s hottest trends, but there’s another trend that we also need to discuss – bright colors! Now, I know that it isn’t a surprise to most of you that the bolds come out as the weather warms up, but I wanted to show you which colors seem to be the most popular for 2010!

Moving away from the greens and blue, the hit colors for this season seem to fall more into the citrusy┬áspectrum. Pinks, oranges, yellows, that’s the colors that people seem to be clamoring for. Like the orange tank below from Green Dragon, $83, or the Green Dragon Tang Wap, $87, under that, when you go with these colors, you’ll be able to taste the juicy oranges and grapefruits they’re inspired by.

Pulling off this look is simple. You can pair bright color with simply jeans or with crisp white pants for a refreshing put-together look. For accessories, I would go with black, the contrast will really make the colors pop. Maybe a simple black beaded necklace, black drop earrings – they will really accent the rest of your outfit.

Don’t be afraid of color – everyone can pull it off, even if it’s just adding orange pumps to your feet. If you’re unsure, just start small, a touch here, a touch there.
