Bright Color, our fashion trend of the month for February 2011, features bold hues in clothing and fashion accessories. Bright, bold tones were featured on many designer runways for spring 2011, including Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, and we noticed a lot of celebrities wearing bright, bold colors at both the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Fashion Tips for Bright Colors
- Avoid wearing too many bright colors together. Although a multi-colored ensemble may look great on tall runway models, it seldom works well for real-world dressing, especially for petite women.
- Wear one piece of bright clothing or one fashion accessory in a bold color to showcase the color and avoid overwhelming a petite figure
- Try wearing a bright jacket or cardigan with a dress in a neutral color.
- Wear a bright dress and accessorize with metallics and neutrals.
