Bright, vibrant colours are perfect at this time of year but for some it can understandably be quite daunting. If you’re usually a neutrals girl or favour dark hues then rocking a punchy shade of yellow or red can feel a little unfamiliar. However if you want to dip your toe into a little colour but are not sure where to start, then read on for how to make it your friend…
Use it as an accent
If you don’t want to jump straight in with bright clothing then try incorporating a colourful accessory into your look as a first step. You could wear a colourful head band, a pair of vibrant heels or a bold hued bag. It will instantly lift your outfit but it’s not such a huge leap that you’ll feel uncomfortable.
Work it back with neutrals
If you don’t usually wear colour make it a little more wearable by pairing it with neutrals. Think shades like white, cream or grey which allow a bright hue to pop.
Try it with denim
The thing with denim is that you can wear it with everything — particularly bright shades. Whether you wear a skirt or your fave pair of jeans, treat denim as a neutral and pair it with a colourful top for a look that you’ll feel instantly comfortable and confident in.
Don’t wear it from head to toe
As a beginner you may be tempted to throw caution to the wind and just go all in with colour. The thing with brights is that you need do it with some restraint to avoid it from being too overwhelming. Wearing a bright orange from head to toe can feel a little over the top rather than look fresh and modern.
