Color-Popping in Style
Posted on July 24 2011
Add Color Now!
By now you should have gotten the memo—the S/S 11 and A/W 11 runways said it loud and clear: You’ve got to get your color on! We understand not everyone is ready to go bold in head to toe color. So we’re going to start small, with baby steps if you will. Because we know the power of a simple pop of color. It brings your outfit onto the fast track from unnoticeably cute to eye-catching goodness. If you happen to only be comfortable in neutrals or black, then get ready to step into the hue. Bright accents sit perfectly on neutral tones, and we’re going to show you how it’s done.
Pink and blue aren’t just for babies. A soft pink gets a huge lift when accented by bright blue. Diane Kruger showed up at the premiere of Pieds Nus Sur Des Limaces in Germany wearing a blush lace dress with turquoise pumps. It was the perfect blend of sweet and sassy. Break out your femininity in this dress by Tony Bowls then pair with a hotly hued shoe. Simply charming on the top, downright rocking on the bottom.
An LBD sets the stage for show stopping color. Take your favorite LBD, and add a vibrantly shaded clutch. Keep your shoes and jewelry minimal to let the clutch steal the show. Don’t own an LBD? Click here for our always updated selection.
A bright cinch does double duty during the day or at night. Not only does a bold belt accentuate your waist, it can also make an outfit pop. The beauty with white is you can choose any color for your accent. We are loving the bright red belt that anchors this LWD by Interlude.
Don’t forget your lipstick and nail polish! Nothing color pops your face better than lipstick, and nothing is sexier than a boldly colored lip. Red, coral and hot pink smothered the runways this season, so feel free to pucker up in bold tones. Same goes for nail polish. A simple, yet incredibly effective way to add color into your ensemble. Don’t hold back—neon pink toes are fierce!
