If you want to make a statement, go with saturated colors no matter the trend. Luckily, they are right on trend this season! Don’t be scared of the hues, all you need is some tips and the confidence to wear them. Once you start, you will be surprised how fun and easy they are to play with!

A bright-colored suit is a great start to experiment with this head-to-toe color trend. The classic and modern silhouette of the suit balance the loudness of its color, besides you can mix and match each separate with all the neutrals in your wardrobe.

After you picked the suit, choose pieces that are either neutral or in the same color family to complete the look, like the jacket on Olivia Palermo (60% off now!) and the blue cutout bustier on Candice Lake above.

For accessories, you can either choose neutral ones but with interesting details, like this gorgeous white cut-out sandals; or play colorblocking by teaming cobalt blue heels with a coral suit; or mix textures and prints by pairing a leopard belt with a jacquard top as Olivia Palermo did.

Last but not least, fabric is the key when wearing bright pieces. Since colored pieces naturally draws attention, you don’t want them to stick to your body, with that said, select fabrics that drape instead of cling, like breezy silk, lightweight wool, high-density cotton or structured jacquard.

Unlike last spring when pastels dominated streets, saturated brights take center stage this season. Among them, orange and raspberry are two of my favorites. From clothing to accessories, they will surely spice up all our summer whites!

As you can see above, orange is our featured color today. Since the shade is so bright and eye-catching, team it with neutral pieces, then choose one or two accessories in the same color family or the same shade to enhance the overall impact, like the two ladies did above.

Tangerine is not something new (since Pantone revealed it as the color of 2012, it hasn’t gone anywhere), so in order to make the look more current, Alessandra Ambrosio played a new maxi skirt trend: the double side slit version! Yes, the maxi dresses/skirts have gone from side slit to high-low to double split now!

Last but not least, keep proportions in mind: team a maxi skirt with a sleeveless slim fit top. If you want the eyes focus on your body-hugging pencil skirt and the sexy subtle side slit, keep your arms covered.
