I usually like to stick to my neutral colored shirts, but since it’s officially spring, its time for me to be bold and add my pop of colors. I’ve always been wary of bright colors, for one, I don’t really think bright colors look good on me, but two, I don’t want to be ‘too loud’ with my clothing, drawing attention to myself. Over time, I’ve become more comfortable with stepping out of my comfort zone of black/grey shirts and started wearing bright colors. I think choosing the right bold color can make things feel fresh, bright, and light, being very appropriate for spring.
I’ve had this Orange top since last spring, but only wore it a handful of times because I felt uncomfortable with such a bold orange. It’s taken sometime, but I’m finally comfortable with wearing this top and feel good doing so. I’m a strong believer that you have to be comfortable and feel good about what you are wearing for it to look good on you. How you feel in a certain outfit, can change your posture, presence, and attitude about it. Paired with light wash denim kept this look casual, very suitable for a leisurely day out. I accented the top with some light jewelry, focusing on a pop of orange in my bracelet. And of course the handbag, i mean you can't go wrong with it!
I think I feel more comfortable wearing this color now because my hair color at the moment is quite fitting and goes with the orange hue nicely. It’s interesting how our styles and taste can change in clothing over time. With a little bit of confidence and a bold color top, you too can shine bright during these upcoming spring months. Try to reach for something out of your comfort zone; you may be surprised about your reaction. Spring is the time to try and experience with colors, so I encourage you to go for it! You wont know until you try!
