Bursts of Color

May 4, 2010

When it comes to colorful clothing, I tend to veer towards more neutral colors. For example, I, embarrassingly enough, organize the clothing in my bureau according to “color” and have one drawer dedicated to white, another to black/gray, and one I like to call the “rainbow drawer”. It’s not that I don’t enjoy wearing colors, because I do, I just usually wind up being most satisfied with an outfit made of shadowy hues as opposed to ones made up of vibrant colors. That being said, I do enjoy adding a burst of color to an otherwise neutral outfit to spice things up a bit. From a pair of bright yellow harem pants paired with a sheer black blouse to an all black ensemble paired with a bright turquoise necklace, I always try to bring a little color into my outfit.

Below I have compiled some looks that have atleast one bright burst of color; be it yellow, red, blue, or purple, these girls know how to bring color into an outfit.

    oh wow- a yellow skirt- how thrilling. . . if you want colorful you can get way more fabulous bursts of neon then stupid all black with one shoe having blue on it! boring. if i needed fashion advice like this, i wouldve turned to my aunt ethel, who always said that a colorful polyester blouse made any pantsuit chic. no!!!
