Summer season is known for bright and juicy colors, but be careful overdoing it if you don’t want to look like three-colored-traffic-lights. Looking for inspirations on how to wear colors in the summer? Keep on reading for our 5 easy tricks.

  1. Go for a tonal dressing if you’re not a fan of bright shades.

If you’re a fan of a classic style, you may still go for tonal dressing as your neutral hues don’t need to match. Just create a slight color variation that can make the look more interesting. For a casual street look, opt for a light wash on your chambray shirt and pair it with denim jeans in a darker wash. Or, team your nude dress with a white pair of sandals and vice versa to create an interesting look without resorting to neon shades. A monochromatic dressing may actually make you look visually taller especially if you’re petite.

  1. Opt for a brightly-colored outfit that will make the statement for you.

If you don’t know how to incorporate bright colors in your outfit, start by picking for a brightly colored dress with a plain style or even ones with subtle prints, embellishments, or embroideries. This way, you’ll keep your style no-fuss and simple. Like fashion blogger Darya Kamalova, opt for a bright red maxi dress that will surely make those heads turn as the color itself is statement-making. Or, add some interest to your summer looks by going for architectural, asymmetric, or modern cuts of dresses like fashion blogger Sydne Summer did.

  1. Team your brightly-colored pieces with neutrals to neutralize them.

Bear bold hues by pairing them with neutrals. Black will give a sharp contrast when paired with bright colors compared to the shades of white, beige, brown, or nude. For an office-appropriate look, copy Kristina Bazan’s style of wearing a red lace dress with a white blazer to keep it tamed yet season-appropriate. Also, you may opt for trendy pieces like tunics in bright colors so you’ll rock two trends at once.

  1. Mix your bright colors with other bright shades or summer prints.

Spice up your summer looks by teaming your bright shades with bright colors or summer prints. Did you know that prints and patterns camouflage sweat stains better than solid colors? So make your looks stylish and functional at the same time. Like fashion blogger Jessica Ricks, team your floral print dress with a brightly-colored bag to make your summer looks playful and chic. Color blocking and print mixing are trendy right now that you may think of incorporating them into your looks. Just wear more than one at a time if you’re feeling daring!

  1. Opt for brightly-colored accessories to spice up your summer looks.

If you’re really a fan of neutral and muted shades, simply spice up your looks with brightly colored accessories. Wearing a chic hat, satchel bag, strappy sandals, necklace, bangles, earrings and such in bright colors can be a great to add some flair to your summer looks. By doing this, you’ll create a fashion-forward style in the summer without taking away your fashion personality just to follow trends.
