Brighter than Sunshine: 30 Vivid Fashion Pieces from

Add some pep and a dash of zing to your summer ensembles with these stylish must-haves! By Janey Aniban

As the sun climbs high and temperatures rise to feverish levels, the dark and moody tones of the previous season are shed in favor of sampling the more daring shades of the color spectrum.  So stash all your rich, luxurious shades in the back of your closet because now is the time to stock up on fun and vivid hues in light and airy fabrics that look great and help you beat the heat.

While this trend may sound like an invitation to wearing neon shades from head to toe neon, we advise you to stick to a maximum of three colors in one outfit (no one wants to look like Rainbow Brite) and to look for colors that complement each other. Color blocking is still a major trend and doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon, so feel free to experiment with punchy hues.

But for those of you who want to dip your toes into the trend before diving in head first, accessories are a fail-safe alternative for the color-shy. Choose accessories that serve as accent pieces and act as points of interest in a neutral outfit. A bright pair of pumps or an eye-catching clutch adds a pop of delicious color and will help round out an outfit. But bright pieces aren’t restricted to solid colors; bold patterns (like polka dots, stripes, or florals) add character and definitely make a fashion statement.

To make things a little easier for you, we’ve compiled an extensive list of items that cover just about all the colors of the rainbow to satisfy your thirst for highly pigmented hues. Browse through the gallery and shop our picks from!
