Dresses like these may look fab on the runway, but would you wear one in real life? Welcome to one of spring’s newest trends -Electric Brights. Designers like Rachel Roy have designed clothes in strong, shiny colors that are loud, proud and pretty over the top for most women over 40.
Does that mean electric brights are something you may want to pass on this season, or is there a way to incorporate the fun feeling of this trend into something more wearable? I have a great idea.
I was flipping through and noticed this terrific photo of the perfect solution. To look modern and hip simply add a pop of color via an accessory.
Many mature women find that a small shot of bold color looks most tasteful after 40. If you throw several wild brights together in one outfit you can look and feel like you belong in a kindergarten classroom!
One of my favorite combos is a neutral outfit with a pop of color.
Nude or buff as they are calling it is spring’s top neutral. It looks elegant combined with an electric bright.
Navy and an electric bright, like lemon zest (below) looks fab too, and of course black and a bold hue always looks chic too.
Have you experimented with the electric bright trend?
