As you can see, I’m obsessed with the color yellow now. It’s so endearing and uplifting, universally flattering and incredibly versatile. It’s also a color that is ageless and seasonless.

There are so many ways to play with it. Start with shapes, you can find flirty peplum, dramatic ball gown, sexy bodycon or sleek sheath from the top picks featured below.

This buoyant color also adds its own spin to our favorite materials: It infuses youthful exuberance to delicate silk, livens up the mature jacquard or tweed, tones down the sexiness of lace

Either wear it as a pop of color to your monochrome ensemble for a chic daytime look or team it with other primary colors or metallic accents for a glamorous evening look, have fun experimenting with your yellow pieces!

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.
