Spring 2011 Trend: Bright Colors

Intense colors, including coral, turquoise and yellow, may seem like hard hues to wear, but designers are taking them to new levels for Spring 2011 by pairing them together; bold color blocking and clashing color combinations have never looked so beautiful. A pegged skirt in canary yellow paired with shades of peach at Nina Ricci show off a ladylike look with vibrancy. An asymmetrical top and flowy skirt in shades of poppy red by Lanvin are a dramatic statement. Christian Dior pairs a colorful print skirt with an even brighter top.

Say goodbye to your navy blue, grey and black wardrobe, it’s time to add some major color to your look. Whether you pair your brights together, or add a bit of neon to your neutral basics, anything goes – and remember, the brighter the better.
