Brighten up your wardrobe

This spring it's all about bold colors and bright shades that pop. Electric blues, get-noticed greens and over-the-top oranges were seen on runways from Marc Jacobs to Tory Burch. If you’re unsure how to incorporate these stunning shades into your wardrobe, we have some simple style tips.

Bold colors for spring

1Start small with jewelery

If you're not ready to dive into dazzling hues from head to toe, you can start small – with jewelery. Necklaces, pendants and earrings are all great ways to add a pop of something bright to your outfit without feeling overwhelmed by too much color. We love these Miss Plum earrings ($65) by Old Soul, New Heart. The plum glass stones provide a subtle punch of pretty color.

2Purses, bags and belts

A handbag or belt in a bold hue is a great way to weave some color into your wardrobe this spring. Spice up any neutral outfit by toting a daring red handbag. This Kate Spade Ellen bag ($225) is big enough to carry everything you need for the day, while still being sleek and stylish.

3Mix and match

If you're ready to kick things up another notch in the color department, mix and match neutrals with bold shades the next time you put together an outfit. Pairing a white shirt and tan pants or jeans with a cardigan in an eye-popping hue is a fun, yet still subtle way of brightening up your wardrobe for spring. This Ribbed waist cardigan in crushed berry from the Gap (on sale for $39.60) will perk up any oufit that veers on the side of plain.
