Bright Color Week: A Little Color

Yesterday I went big in the color game, combining several bold, bright hues. Today I thought I’d take a more subtle approach by starting with a neutral base and adding small pops of color. I chose this light gray gingham shirt and white jeans so that my hot pink necklace and chartreuse belt would really stand out.

I love how color, whether it’s a little or a lot, can really transform a look. Since I added the “From the Archives” section to the bottom of my posts, I’ve been looking at old outfits and posts with fresh eyes. Maybe it’s because I just completed three capsule wardrobe cycles full of lots of neutrals, but the archived posts that I like best and want to recreate are the ones with bold, interesting, and sometimes unexpected color combinations. Based on that and on the way I feel when I wear color, I’m going to make “dress colorfully” my motto for the rest of the summer. Who’s with me?

What’s your own color philosophy? Are you typically drawn to colorful or more neutral looks?
