Now that the weather has finally taken a turn for the better, it is time to break out our favorite dresses. I do realize that spring is not necessarily a warm time of year around here, but there are ways to wear your dresses even when the weather may not be cooperating. Spring and summer are all about adding some bright and vibrant colors into your wardrobe. Now that the days are brighter, our outfits are, too!

This Fashionista brought those bright shades into more than one place in her look. Her bright orange dress quickly catches the eye. The color is fun and flirty, but also shows off the killer tan you are starting. Her stack of bangles and ring bring in a mix of blue and red into the outfit. She keeps it a little simpler with her beautiful flower shaped earrings that have a small stone in the center. As we all know, the weather can be unpredictable so layering is key. She tossed on a cropped jean jacket to keep her warm in the brisk wind. To finish off the look, she added some brown gladiator sandals that just scream spring and summer. This Fashionista is ready to kick off spring in style!

If you’re not sure how to mix bright colors in your wardrobe, start with color-blocking. Taking articles of clothing that are solid in color and placing them together gives you a better idea of what will work. A trick that I like to remember is that jewel tones almost always work together, so give it a go and I’m sure you’ll love what you see!

One Simple Change: If you want to bring this look to internship approved, just swap the jean jacket out for a blazer. That small change will give the look a more professional feel.
