Wearing a bright color is always a fun way to stand out. Wearing colors like red, and hot pink really can make heads turn in your direction. However, so many people shy away from wearing bold colors. Fears of looking too bright, wearing clashing colors or looking too matchy-matchy are some reasons so many Fashionistas stick to wearing neutral or safe colors. A great way to wear bright colors, while avoiding all of these potential problems is by picking a specific hue as a pop of color for your outfit.

Choosing a pop of color allows you to add some fun colors into your everyday outfits without looking too bright. It’s an easy look to achieve, simply find a piece or two in the same bold color, and keep the rest of your outfit neutral. Some popular pop of color pieces include, shoes, skirts and pants.

This Fashionista’s look is a perfect summertime example of the pop of color trend. In her outfit she chooses white as her neutral color and a deep red as her accent. Her pop of color pieces are her deep red high-waisted shorts, and her statement necklace. Her necklace perfectly matches her shorts to create a color-coordinated look. For her neutral white pieces, she wears a mock-neck white tank top, white wedge sandals, and a white Michael Kors cross-body bag. She keeps the majority of her accessories white as well with her white pearl earrings and pearl and rhinestone stacking bracelets. However, this Fashionista includes some gold accessories as well, her gold Michael Kors watch and her gold rimmed aviator sunglasses. These gold accessories match the gold hardware in her purse and shoes to further bring together and create an overall polished look.
