This color trend looks fabulous in a range of styling options from color blocking to tonal pairing. Here are a few ways to style these vibrant hues for work, play and date night!

9-to-5 Color Blocking

Use richly saturated, solid pieces to create a color blocked, yet structured style around the color of the blouse. Try complementary color pairing by layering on a classic green cardigan. Let your play on colors stand out by finishing your look with neutral accessories and a classic pump.

Casual Combinations

  1. It is a pretty color, but it doesn’t look good on me. I look washed out, and unwell in this color.

Leave love!
