Shine bright! 16 ways to wear the boldest colors of the season

With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner your future is looking bright ... and so is fashion! Tamron broke the Internet last week with her neon pink jumpsuit, and as the Gilt.com lifestyle editor, I thought we would take a spin on the color wheel to talk about how you can get in on this trend, too.

That’s right — it’s time to get bold because this season it's the brighter, the better!

Add a touch with accessories

We always say the easiest (and most affordable!) way to experiment with a trend is through accessories. And boy, are there some bright ones this season! From shoes to bags to jewelry, we are seeing highly saturated colors with loads of equally expressive embellishments. Look out for exotic beading, tassels, fringe, pompoms and more from brands like Sam Edelman, Aldo, H&M, Topshop and more! Yes, there is finally a season for me — as a maximalist — more is definitely more in my book!

Jumpsuit

So, let's start with a look that was inspired by Tamron ... the jumpsuit. This is quite possibly our favorite silhouette of the season — it's one-piece dressing at it's most modern. When you add in some bold color, you've really got a statement piece! This jumpsuit's future's so bright it better wear shades!

Separates

When it comes to mixing brights, a lot of people want to know: How bright is too bright? Try adopting our maxim that brighter is better and go for the gusto! Two of our favorite colors combine to create a really unique look: coral and electric pink. Secretly, the latter is the most flattering color on the planet! It reflects beautifully on all skin tones, as Tamron's mother recently showed. We paired a trumpet-sleeve top with a sophisticated, high-waisted wide leg pant for a super chic silhouette.
