Is there anything better than wearing a rainbow of chic colors? Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely adore neutrals, but there’s something so energizing about wearing vibrant shades on vacation or adding some pizzazz to day-to-day looks. And that’s not a coincidence. Research shows that wearing certain colors releases certain hormones that affect your mood. Indeed, wearing warm, bright colors like red or pink releases dopamine, making you feel joyful. Wearing cool blues triggers the release of oxytocin, which makes you feel calm. Amazing, right?
If you’re looking for an awesome way to brighten up your wardrobe and even hack your mood while you’re at it, you’ll definitely want to invest in a few colorful printed tops or fun-colored dresses. But those of us who err on the neutral side may need a bit of advice on how to incorporate colors in a way that feels natural. The most important thing to know? Don’t ditch your black, white, or beige basics. They go with bright colors and can help you build perfectly balanced outfits.
The next thing you need to know is which colors look best on you. While we think everyone can successfully wear every color of the rainbow tone, you may feel more comfortable in a certain color-family based on your skin tone. If you have warm skin undertones, you may find that shades of yellow, red, or gold complement you best. If your undertone is cool, blue, green, pink, and soft yellow work well. Those with neutral skin tones effortlessly rock pastels, dusty pinks, and jewel tones.
As moms, we all want to look pretty and polished while on vacation or living everyday life, but we know that mom life calls for comfortable, breathable clothing that won’t slow us down. Here are some of the best and brightest combinations that tick all your boxes and keep you looking colorful while you travel or simply go about your daily life. These looks are all comfortable, age-appropriate, and easy to take with you on trips.
Floral prints are huge this season, and they’re the perfect way to add color to your vacation style. Whether you go for pink and red roses or pastel daisies, the effect is the same — a rainbow of pretty blossoms you can wear for both casual and dressy events. If you want to dress things up a touch, we recommend pairing your bright florals with neutral wedges or espadrilles to create a stylish balance. You can always dress down a floral piece by styling it with flat sandals or trendy white sneakers.
If you don’t own a pair of white jeans, now is the time to make the investment. We love styling white skinny jeans with bright, printed blouses in bold prints and patterns. Florals, geometric prints, and even colorful animal prints will help you introduce plenty of splashy colors to your wardrobe.
Puff sleeve tops are a favorite in any fashionista’s collection of cute and trendy women’s clothes or dressy blouses. We love these tops because they add color and a feminine flair to any ensemble without going too over the top. Pair your colorful puff sleeve blouse with some dark wash denim for a casual yet chic ensemble for sightseeing, dinner, and more.
Maxi dresses are a busy mama’s best friend, especially in the spring and summertime. The best part is that they come in so many gorgeous colors and prints to help you infuse some vibrancy into your look. Layer up with a denim jacket for some added texture and to stay warm if it gets chilly outside.
Tiered ruffles are super trendy at the moment. We love them because they’re often done in alternating colors to bring an eye-catching twist to a comfy, casual look. Choose a dress with a different color for each tier to create a stripe-like aesthetic with a big pop of bright, bold colors.
Who says solid-colored tops can’t bring out your colorful side? Not us! The key here is to choose bright or statement shades that are a touch out of your comfort zone. Pastels, jewel tones, and even vibrant neons will color your wardrobe to perfection. If you think a solid-colored top won’t bring enough color, consider pairing it with a statement necklace in a bold array of shades.
Gingham is another one of the biggest trends of the moment, and it’s perfect for adding a touch of color to your look. Whether soft blue or bright green, colorful gingham is an easy to style pattern that colors you with joy. Combine a few of the latest trends, such as puff sleeves or tiered ruffles, for a fashion-forward gingham look.
Color block dresses are the perfect solution for ladies who love to wear multiple colors at once but who don’t always prefer a busy pattern. The Color block pieces come in a wide variety of palettes, from combinations of blue or pink to bright colors accented by versatile neutrals. Pair them with some simple or statement sandals to tie your look together.
The key to wearing color as a mom is to find vibrant tops and dresses that keep you comfortable and don’t slow you down while you travel, run errands, and beyond. If you’re not comfortable in what you’re wearing, you’re simply not going to reach for those pieces again. The above styling combinations will help ensure that you debut your new colorful wardrobe without limitation.
