STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Accessorize In Color

Style Advice of the Week

Summer is the best season to get away with sporting bright colors that we wouldn’t normally wear. The forecasted color trends for spring and summer 2013 were especially vibrant, ranging from nectarine orange to lemon zest yellow. To add color to your own wardrobe, accessories add the punch of color that every outfit beckons for.

This Fashionista’s bright pink purse caught my eye while I was walking through an outdoor mall on a beautifully sunny day. The Michael Kors bag is an ode to summertime fun. Her white muscle T-shirt and jeggings created a simple canvas for the lovely tote.

Your own bold accessory can also be a purse in your favorite hue, but is not limited to just handbags. With sunglasses varying in virtually every shape, style and color this summer, a pair of cool shades can add fun to your wardrobe like these bright yellow sunnies from NASTY GAL. When it’s not too hot out, a beanie, such as this neon one from ASOS, is a trendy piece of headwear that has been seen recently on tons of celebrities and street style blogs. And of course, we can’t forget shoes as a go-to radiant accessory. These Sam Edelman sandals, properly labeled as “vivid violet,” are simple enough for even the most modest Fashionistas to be able to brighten up their wardrobe.

Every outfit you wear doesn’t have to be neon, but accessories are an easy way to add a splash of the rainbow to even the most basic ensembles. Have fun with your outfit add-ons because you have no excuses for a boring look this summer.
