1 Aim for Accessories

Not everyone will be brave enough to make a bright colour the focal point of their outfit and that's totally okay! If this sounds like you, it's a good idea to aim for accessories instead and choose this area to incorporate your bright colours! For example, you might choose a bright yellow handbag or a red pair of sunnies.

2 Make It the Focal Point

For those who are brave enough to make a bright colour the focal point of their outfit, the best way to go about this is to minimise everything else by pairing it with neutrals for an overall clever colour balance. Remember you want all eyes on your bright colour choice, so don't let any other part of your outfit take away from this!

3 Use the Same Colour Palette

Choosing different shades of the same colour is another great way to pull of wearing bright colours! For example, you might opt for a bright blue top with a navy blue skirt finished off with a cobalt blue pair of heels. This is a great way to ensure each piece in your outfit works together and looks super cohesive to the eye.

4 Still Keep Black Handy

It's no surprise that bright colours will draw attention to certain areas of your body in which they are placed, but if you don't love everything about your body it's good to keep black handy to draw attention away from any areas you would rather stay hidden! Wearing colours strategically is a great way to ensure people will only see what you want them to see.

5 Be Bold with Belts

Belts are a great way to break up an outfit that could otherwise appear to be a bit too heavy on the eye, so they can be handy if your bright outfit seems like too much all in one. For example you might choose a simple black belt to break up a rather bright outfit or alternatively, choose a bright coloured belt to break up a fairly neutral outfit while giving it a nice pop of colour. With belts you'll never run out of options!

6 Find Great Colour Combinations

Another key way to pull of wearing bright colours is to know which colour combinations work really well together. For example jewel colours like purple, blue and green look great with bright colours like pink, yellow and orange. When you pair colours like this together it's very hard for you to go wrong!

7 Have Confidence!

It's understandable that not everyone will have all the confidence in the world when it comes to wearing bright colours and that's fine! But if you feel like giving it a go, it's super important to have confidence in your decisions and don't be afraid of what others might think. If you feel great you will most definitely look great 😄
