As someone who is obsessed with fashion and all things related, it might seem odd when I say that I’m not too keen when it comes to trends, especially ones that seem to come and go before you can even blink an eye. As much as I love to take risks with fashion, I am always continuously drawn towards classic shapes and silhouettes that feel timeless and effortless.
Fashion and how you dress day-to-day can often become somewhat of a routine; we get comfortable with dressing in a certain way and it just sticks. I’m starting to realize this more and more as I take a deeper look into my own closet. This fact is pretty evident in the evergrowing sea of black shoes I have. I always use the justification, “Well, this pair will go with everything. They’re black, after all!” Point taken and noted. I truly do have a black shoe for every occasion. But lately I’ve been craving something different and new and I’ve found myself unreasonably addicted to a trend I’ve seen all over the runways and the streets: vivid, rainbow colors incorporated into an everyday dress.
There’s something so refreshing about wearing bright colors. There is nothing quiet or humble or timid about this trend—it’s right there, in your face. It makes a statement. It has a voice and not a hushed one for that matter. It simply feels so refreshing to wear colors that emit happiness and positivity.
In this look, I styled my outfit rather simply to let all the colors do the talking. I’m wearing a straw boater hat that is the perfect addition to any outfit in the summertime. I layered my funky tunic with a black bralette that is neutral and gives some balance to the look. The perfect shoes for this look were a pair of Birkenstocks, but if I was feeling extra funky I would’ve thrown on my chunky clogs.
The summer is coming to an end but I’m going to try to incorporate more color into my looks as fall comes upon us. I simply cannot get enough of this trend. There’s something so nostalgic about the bright colors that have me yearning for a time quite before mine. The feelings and thoughts of those times are still very alive today and can be felt by wearing this bright and vivid trend that is nostalgic but in a very refreshing and relevant way.
