One of my favorite reasons I love Summer so much is the use of color in clothing. Everything is bright, color is used in abundance and it makes me feel happy. When Fall assortments hit the department stores, one of the first noticeable changes I see is in the color options. Although there isn’t a shortage in hues, it’s just the tones and brightness are much more subdue, which leaves me feeling less inspired.
To keep my moral up, I have certain color pallets I refer to that help my wardrobe stay bright and cheerful. This allows me to embrace the new season and color changes that are necessary. My secret recipe is balance. It’s about having one specific bright item on and paring it with more neutral and classic basic. If I want to add a pop of hot pink, I tend to soften the look with army green and light denim. Bright yellow pairs beautifully with a heather gray and cream. By mixing a bold color with a neutral you end up with a gorgeous and balanced combo. This simple trick lets me play around with my cheerful pallets yet remaining subdue enough for the season.
