Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report, Part Deux

While part one of our Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report focused on the neutrals and pastels of the season to come, part two brings the fun with bright, bold color. Take a look at some of the pieces below to see how you can incorporate these trendy shades into your wardrobe once the cold and snow finally leave the Midwest...I have faith that it will happen.

Spring '14 - Celosia Orange

Celosia Orange is one bright hue that I definitely recommend giving a try this spring. Incorporate this warm shade with a cap sleeve dress, peplum jacket, or embellished jewel bib necklace. Want something more subtle? A bright clutch or lip color is the perfect way to sneak some color into your look.

Spring '14 - Freesia

This sunny color reminds me of bright daffodils and sunshine. How could you not feel happy when wearing Freesia? This one is surely to most bold of the spring 2014 colors and should be worn sparingly to avoid looking like a highlighter. Paint your toes a sunny yellow, sport some flat sandals, drop earrings or a waist-cinching belt. If you’re willing to go all the way, a skirt or fun top is the way to go!

Spring '14 - Cayenne

¡Muy caliente! This orangish shade of red is one color I am looking forward to. Try a Cayenne skater dress with a pair of flats, a bright pair of heels with black pants, firey red nails, or an animal print cross body bag for a night on the town. For a more subtle touch, try a bright statement necklace on a neutral base.

Spring '14 - Dazzling Blue

Cobalt may be a thing of the past but Dazzling Blue is in for Spring ‘14! Although bright, this color has a grown up feel that is perfect for both casual and fancy occasions -- pair a peplum with slacks for the office or search for a royal jewel-toned bandage skirt for a hot date. Statement flats, a jeweled cuff bracelet, or a nail color are safer ways to try this shade.

and of course, the 2014 Color of the Year…

Spring '14 - Radiant Orchid

You didn’t think I’d forget this one, did you? Absolutely ideal for spring, this pinky purple color offers a feminine touch to your wardrobe without going overboard. Add a pop of color to your ankle jeans and tee with Radiant Orchid Chuck Taylors, a buckled mini satchel or flowing tank. Take this color trend to the next level as a pencil skirt, nail lacquer or necklace.

So, now that you’ve seen it all, which is your favorite? Which is your least favorite? Tell us below and share links to any posts where you are incorporating these colors into your looks. We’d love to see them!
