Color blocking was my favorite trend of all time and I have been waiting for the day that it would come back around. 2010-2012 was basically the peak of my style sense because I wore bright colors every day. I’d show up to work with pink jeans and a red silk top or out to dinner in a yellow dress with neon pink pumps and it was just the best.
My bridesmaids even wore yellow dresses with bright pink bouquets. It was glorious!
When I saw Mandy Moore’s Brandon Maxwell dress for the Emmy’s this year I literally jumped up and down with excitement. That dress inspired today’s post, a love letter to bright colors for fall and winter, something that you shouldn’t be afraid of. A hot pink sweater will brighten up even the gloomiest of winter days and these fun feather earrings add a colorful pop to any look.
If you feel up to it, mix and match your brights and take it back to 2011 with me. I would totally wear my orange Dudley Stephens with these pink pants or an orangy-red headband with a pink and red color block sweater. And I’ve been living in this cozy fleece zip-up sweatshirt lately with a pair of black leggings.
What do you think about bright colors outside of summer? Should I do a post to show you how I style them?
