Go Bold or Go Home! Incorporate Color Into Your Wardrobe This Season In 3 Easy & Inexpensive Ways

By  April 30, 2013

With spring’s sunshine upon us and summer on its way, now’s the perfect time to embrace the bold colors we see floating down the runways. Spice up your wardrobe with some colorful new hues and prints! While some designers opted to go bold this season with blasts of fearless and energetic orange, others made an artistic statement with explosive colors of brushstroke prints, or brought us back to the swinging ’60s with bold prints, bright colors, and short A-line hems.

No matter what your mood or personal style, there are chic and easy ways to incorporate the bright color and bold print trends into your wardrobe on any budget.

Colorful looks can be better complements to your skin tone than neutrals, and can help you play up features that you want to enhance – like your eyes. A printed wrap dress with a pop of color is flattering and versatile and will take you from the office to drinks with the girls with a quick change of accessories.

Not entirely convinced that all-over bold color and prints are for you? Accessories are always a low commitment way to incorporate seasonal trends. From shoes and handbags to statement jewelry and sunglasses, you can easily find unexpected and inspiring pieces to pump up the volume! Running out the door in neutral tones? Layer on a bold print scarf or statement necklace. Weekend brunch in jeans and a tee? Turn it up with a yellow tote or bright color heel or wedge.

If all else fails, add color to your look through makeup. A bold lip is always in style, provided you keep the rest of the face simple and natural. Some of the sexiest and most popular lip shades this season are hot pinks and zesty oranges. For the price of a cup of coffee you can add color front-and-center all season long. And don’t forget your nails! Nail art is one of the biggest trends in beauty right now. Between polishes, wraps, and appliques, there’s no excuse not to let your fingers and toes get in on the party!
