I’m a firm believer that what you wear is a true reflection of who you are or how you’re feeling at that moment. Think about it, when you choose bright colors you’re most likely feeling happy and if you’re wearing black in the dead heat of the summer, you’re probably feeling conservative and/or somewhat out of your mind.

But trust me and take a color cue on this one, wearing bright colors can be liberating – especially if you’ve been hiding under the shadows of a muted wardrobe. And who knows? It may lift your spirits if you’re feeling down, give you a dash of confidence or convey a different (very chic, if I say so myself) message.

To pull off a colorful look, start with one basic piece – like a silk top, a pencil skirt or a blazer – and build from there. Add in a solid color and keep the accessories in the same story. What makes this work is the way you combine the colors so don’t go too crazy unless it all jives together.

And if you’re still unsure of this trend, wear one bright piece and keep the rest neutral.

Happy Wednesday!

Xo, Stephanie
