If you’ve been keeping up with my TREND Report posts (which obviously you have, my dearly devoted trend setters), you might have noticed that I never shy away from brights! In fact, I am DRAWN towards them. And you should be too! Not only are bright colors a great way to announce your arrival, but they also exude self-confidence and style, when done right. The trickiest way to wear brights: color blocking. The key to color blocking is to wear compatible colors in tailored and polished shapes. While keeping the accessories neutral is common, if you’re feeling ultra daring, add more color in your shoes and bag!
