Fall’s Turning of the Colors – How To Wear Brights This Season

February 11, 2009 by SheFindsKimM

The rebel that I am, I have long ignored fashion’s color rules. So I’m thrilled to see spring’s daring trend of wearing Crayola-colored accessories continue into fall.  Chocolate, plum and evergreen may be fashion norms this time of year, and it’s obvious why, but I’m happy to stand out among the fall landscape rather than to blend in. If you’re not sure how to swing this one, try pairing a majestic purple dress with apple green heels, or a tangerine suit with a turquoise clutch. You can look to the trusty color wheel for further inspiration. Take a color on the wheel, any color, and match it with its exact opposite. But limit yourself to two bright colors only. Any more than that can just look mismatched. Stick to clear, jewel-toned colors and avoid muted hues when following this trend. Still too shy to wear a Big Bird yellow dress with Elmo red pumps? No worries. You can ease into this one. Take your basic black dress and then slip on those red pumps for a pop of color. Keep your other accessories neutral too, and you’ll be a hipster in no time (albeit not a very daring one). Catch the rainbow at zappos.com.
