Fall is well underway with winter coming around the corner. Plenty of dark neutrals, muted shades, winter whites and bold darks are on display. While these colors are great for the season, I find myself missing the bright, bold colors of last spring and summer. Here are a few ways to add those bold brights into your fall wardrobe. Just in case you need added visuals of fall's bold brights check out the Fall Brights slideshow.
Skirts in Bright Colors Are Fall Perfect
I do not know what it is about skirts in bright colors. This garment seems to take on color better than pants. For fall, bring out those bright coral, blue, pink, yellow, and green hued skirts. Pair them with fall neutral colors like navy, shades of brown, off white and deep purples. To truly be bold wear a bold bright with bold dark.
Wear Prints that Incorporate Bold Brights
It is no secret that prints have staying power. Fall prints are more graphic and abstract in nature lending themselves to bolder color choices. This Alfani blouse has a good mix using a combination of bold blues from brights to darks with yellow as the neutralizing color. You can even pair such prints with a solid bright that matches one of the bold brights featured in the printed garment you have chosen.
The colorblock trend is still alive and kicking for fall with colorblocked dresses as the belles of the ball. Look for ones featuring bold bright color. Colorblocked dresses with bright red shades look very stylish for fall.
Bold, Bright Accessories Rock
Accessories are always the easy way to add color to your wardrobe. One fun way to add brights into your wardrobe is with wearing brightly colored tights. Bright tights look great with sweater dresses and tunic dresses. A bold and bright handbag also adds that color blast to your look. Fashion jewelry in bright colors are another option for fall. If you are into headwraps, then a brightly colored one is a chic way to brighten up your fall look.
Bold color is not limited to darks this fall. You can still rock your brights from last spring and summer effortlessly. Start thinking of ways to bring those brightly colored garments back. On the other hand, you can use this as an excuse to do a little fashion accent shopping. That is my plan anyway!
