While I think I love bright colors and neutrals equally, there’s something about warmer weather that makes me so excited to wear bright colors. If you’re a little bit wary about the bright color trend, I’m sure that these reasons will convince you otherwise. Bright colors are one of the best mood lifters, and who doesn’t want to lift their mood in the springtime?
1. They’ll Make Your Skin Tone Pop
No matter your skin tone, bright colors will make your skin tone pop more than usual. Especially if you’ve just gotten back from a vacation, your post-vacation glow will look even better when paired with a bright outfit.
2. Start Small
If you’re not sure about the bright color trend, try starting small instead. Try wearing a statement necklace, or a bright pair of shoes. A statement piece is a great way to start incorporating more color into your wardrobe. After, you can use bright purses or other bigger accessories until you’ve graduated into an outfit that rivals Joseph and the Technicolor Dream Coat.
3. You’ll Make a Statement
If you’re going somewhere or doing something where you want to stick in people’s minds, wear bright colors. Wearing a bright color will help you stick out in someone’s mind. For example, if you have a job interview, wear a bright color. Believe me, there are ways to make bright colors formal for job interviews, and potential employers will not only remember you, but be impressed with your fashion sense.
4. They’ll Help Your Mood
Even if you don’t like bright colors, you can’t help but admit that bright colors help your mood. That’s why more people are happier during the warmer months than the colder months—everything’s bright and alive! If you’re looking for a way to help turn your mood around, try incorporating a few bright colors into your wardrobe.
5. You’ll Always Stand out
If you’re looking for a way to stand out from the rest of the crowd, wear bright colors. It’s a sure way to make a statement without really having to do anything out of the ordinary. If you’re a quiet person but want to stand out a little bit more than usual, I really recommend wearing more bright colors.
6. You Can Be Sophisticated
A lot of people like to make that argument that bright colors are for children, or especially that they can’t work in the workplace. That is so far from the truth. If you watch The Mindy Project, you’ll know how untrue that is. Salvador Perez, the president of the Costume Designer’s Guild of America, is the costume designer on the show and proves those beliefs wrong every week with Mindy Lahiri amazing professional wardrobe. You can be a woman in the workplace in beautiful jewel tones!
7. It Makes Your Makeup Look Easier
Bright colors distract from a lot of other mistakes that you don’t have the time of patience to correct. If you don’t want to spend as much time as usual on your makeup or hair, wearing bright colors will be the focus of your look rather than your makeup and hair.
