Like I said, I'm not one to be intimidated by color (my go-to outfit is high-waisted black skinnies and a floral blouse). When I saw this bright orange designer dress at T.J.Maxx, it was a no brainer — that baby was mine! The chiffon is light and makes for an easy, breezy outfit paired with a belt. I immediately starting envisioning the places I'd wear it: On the weekends with a jean jacket, to the beach over a swimsuit, or even dressed up with heels for a casual wedding. If bright orange is a little too much for you, you can try a softer shade in peach or coral.
Another easy way to incorporate brights into your wardrobe is by wearing one solid, bold-colored top paired with a neutral item, like denim. The rich, bright pink color pared down with a blazer works perfectly for work, or you can layer multiple necklaces over it to create one big statement piece for a night spent at your weekend haunts.
Wet your toes
If you're not up for fully embracing the bright trend, you can incorporate it in a subtler way with accessories. A pop of color in a necklace or a vibrant heel will stand out, but not overpower your look, and you can easily throw them on with any outfit, which will still keep you afloat on the brights trend.
