TREND: Bold Colors

Watch out, boys; your favorite classic wardrobe pieces are now available in a rainbow of colors. Say good-bye to blacks, grays, and navys, and welcome summer's new colors. From the palest pinks to the boldest blues, male fashion has never looked so good.

This Fashionisto has taken a classic wardrobe selection to the next level. Dressed for a classy night out, this Fashionisto took a traditional dress outfit and revamped it with a bold and bright blue button down dress shirt. Adding just a splash of color to the outfit not only helps to spice it up, but also creates an eye catching look. Straying away from the traditional tie, this Fashionisto sported a skinny black tie, adding another non-traditional and hip edge to his ensemble.

To get this look, check out any of your favorite local retail outlets, most stores have already stocked their shelves with these vibrant hues. Express offers over ten different rainbow shades in most shirts. For a more casual and laid back look, try a bold colored V-neck tee or a polo shirt. Ralph Lauren and J. Crew both offer a ton of these shirts in an array of colors.

While there may be some hesitation to retire your favorite black, navy, or gray button down shirt, adding a splash of color to your wardrobe can provide you with a cool and refreshing change. Feeling more daring yet, Fashionistos?

TREND: Bold Colors

It’s Fourth of July weekend, and while back yard bbq’s and fireworks are on your mind, don’t forget your Fashionista style! While celebrating this great American holiday, keep in mind you don’t have to be dressed head-to-toe in red, white, and blue to look patriotic. The great thing about American colors is that they are bright, vibrant and any combination of the three will look stunning when comprised into one outfit. Keeping in mind the heat, most Fashionistas will be found pairing shorts and tanks, sundresses, or even skirts and cardigans for an evening fireworks show. Try getting creative with prints and textures all in different shades of red, white, and blue for an outfit sure to set off some fireworks.

I spotted this Fashionista instantly from her bright red high-wasted skirt. I was so happy to see her using bright colors, especially the red. Instead of using blue for her tank top this Fashionista toned down the look by using a base color of black. Her cardigan is worn perfectly; loose and casual, not stuffy or overbearing. Her skirt is also the perfect length, appropriate for the parade with family.

This fourth of July try this polka dot dress, which navy blue and white and perfect for representing the USA. Or for a splurge, try this petal cardigan that's perfect with jean shorts and a white tank for a night of lounging around a campfire. 

So remember, Fashionistas, try bold reds and blues paired with more neutral whites for the perfect Fourth of July party outfit. Show off your colors and be proud of the country you love!
