A new season means a fresh color palette and a new wardrobe—and in this case, we finally get to move on from our heavy winter wardrobe to light and elegant layers. This Fashionista takes a classic springtime floral to the next level by adding a pop of color. Her bag is a bright orange that perfectly complements the nude and dark red tones in her dress. Not only does a pop of color complement an outfit, but it’s also a way to add personality to your look.

The silhouette on this floral maxi is ideal for the warmer weather rolling in and the high slit provides the perfect amount of skin for any daytime event. The outfit is topped off with gray ankle booties and dainty rings in order to focus the attention on the bag. Lightly accessorizing is crucial whenever you’ve incorporated a pop of color because you don’t want to create too much distraction in one look. The dainty gold rings allow jewelry to be incorporated, but doesn’t cause overkill.

How To: Find a color that complements the colors you are wearing. This color doesn’t necessarily have to be included in something you are already wearing in order for it to look cohesive. Although it can be a similar color in order to bring out the other colors in the outfit, it definitely doesn’t have to be spot on similar to be complementary. Once you have found the perfect color to go with your outfit, accessorize with that color! You can easily do this with a bag, a colorful pair of shoes or statement jewelry to achieve that effortlessly cool girl look.
