Tips to Wearing Bright Colors



You may have been familiar with this look I have put together with mostly whites,neutrals in my  accessories, shoes, and a touch of print with the leopard bag. Some white jean looks are centered more around a neutral look or all white look. I love this too, however, what if I want color? If I want to add pizzazz or perhaps my skin tone is too fair to go for an almost all white look?

A great summer look is wearing those white jeans  with a bright color or print. Let’s face it, some of us want to wake up and have a triple espresso instead of a plain cup o joe!





Attitude plays a role in fashion, we all know this! By wearing bright colors it can change the way one feels and give you more options to try and experiment with fashion for spring/summer.

This bold color Raspberry, a super soft v neck top by Fabrizio Gianni, just was the perfect choice of focus for the look. I added some feminine touches with the vintage inspired rose pink scarf, pointed nude flats with a bow , and accessories to compliment but still keep the attention on the bold color of the top. For this, I chose a tan lace dangling earring and tan/gold stone bracelet.

Tips to wearing bright colors:

  • Take a chance. Try on colors that will work with your skin tone. Raspberry works well with skin tones with some pink, and my fair skin works well with this color.
  • Try taking the bright color and use the same color family to do some color blocking. A fuchsia or orchid skirt could add visual interest.
  • Bright or bold colors can accentuate or highlight the part of the body you love. If you think you have some toned arms or are proud of your abs, then go for bright or bold on top. If you want to highlight those hips or waist, try bright in a skirt or pant, and perhaps try a neutral such as black for your upper body.
  • If you are more conservative, then go with bright in an accessory to start. Try a belt ,handbag, or scarf.
  • If all else fails, make sure you divert attention to your cute puppies! 🙂

Here are some other bright, beautiful colored tops by Fabrizio Gianni to try adding to your white jean look. Hope you enjoyed those tips!

    I love it when women aren’t afraid to experiment and wear bold colours. Even adding a small pop of colour or texture to a neutral outlook as with the leopard print bag with your white outlook, takes it to another level. Just work out what shades of colour works best for you and it really does boost your mood and confidence I find.

    Perfectly aid, sometimes simple coffee works then something i want cappuccino! Love the all white, and I equal love ( more am slightly biased in favor) of the outfit with the bold bright blouse, because you wear color so well. I love the white jeans, they look amazing on you! Coral is so pretty. And yes, your dogs are so cute, but they do don’t divert from your beauty!

    Hi Jess….Are you breaking the “rules” again?? Good!!
    You look stunning and red heads can definitely wear pink! You have found the perfect warm and vibrant shade. That scarf picks out the red of your hair perfectly and pulls it all together.
