Prints, fringes, denim, stripes – they’re all in for this summer, but our favorite trend at Amour Creole is the color trend. Bright shades of pinks, greens, blues and yellows are seen from head to toe.
Adding colors this season will get you noticed, whether at a beach party, a night out with friends or bopping around the office.
Not sure where to begin? Check out these royal blue skinny jeans by J brand “811” [$176] found at any local high retail store and the red woven (linen) hot shorts from Forever 21 [$15.80].
Maxi dresses or skirts are a must-have for this season. So why not try a lush green maxi skirt from Zara [$59] or the Planet Gold Scoop neck maxi dress in coral [$38] at Macy’s?
If these looks are a little too bold for you, accessorize with colorful shoes, jewelry and handbags. For shoes, try the Jessica Simpson color block Vadio pumps [$98] found at Macy’s and Nordstrom or a pair of wedges like the Ellingwood from Aldo [$70] that comes in yellow, blue and red.
For jewelry, keep it simple with a Michael Kors watch like the Chronograph blue silicon [$120] sold at Macy’s or try colorful bangles like Galluzi from Aldo [$18].
When it comes to handbags, a fashionista never leaves home without one. The Preppy Nylon Hayley tote by Marc Jacobs [$278] in vibrant red is an Amour Creole favorite as is the Agra top handle bag from Aldo [$45].
3 Summer Color Tips
There are a plethora of colors like red, yellow, purple, blue, tangerine and hot pink. Here are some tips that will help you choose your colors wisely.
- When pulling colorful accessories, always use complementary colors, like white, which is synonymous with summer.
- Most bright colors are flattering against dark skin but those with fairer skin tones should step out of the dressing room and check your bold shades in various lighting.
- If wearing a pair of fire engine red shorts seems a bit much for you, then dabble a bit of color into your wardrobe by accessorizing with colorful handbags, shoes and jewelry.
