Budget Stylista: Get Bright With Yo Bad Self

Just when we were getting used to the black and grays that fall brought us, the fashion gods decided to to have a fling with brights. From adorable totes to patent pumps, sunglasses to accessories, you can find just about every shade of ROY.G.BIV. (What up, 6th grade science class! Bet you never thought you’d hear ROY.G.BIV again, did you?!)
And for a new twist, colored bottoms are back. I knew I should have hung on to my bright blue capris from the Gap circa the late ’90s. (Remember those commercials where they were all dancing in tons of bright colored bottoms?!)
Sorry. Having some nostalgia moments up in here. Reeling it in…
This spring is all about bright bottoms, and mixing and matching big, bold colors. I love pairing two complementary colors together – think bright blue and orange, or pink and green. It just makes everything more exciting.
If mixing colors is intimidating, stick with a colorful bottom and a neutral top and shoe. The key when mixing colors is to always keep at least one element neutral. So if you’re wearing a coral top and a blue skirt, go with a neutral bag and skin tone shoe. If you’re doing a colorful shoe and pant, or colorful belt and pant, keep the rest toned down.
Not sure where to start? Here are three foolproof looks that will brighten your mood and your wardrobe!
