How To Wear Bright Colors in the Fall

Today is a big day for the blog.  Six years ago, I hit publish on my first blog post and started on the most amazing adventure. Y’all it does not feel like it has been 6 years at all.   I’ve enjoyed putting together all the fabulous fashion and beauty posts over the years.  I can’t wait to continue to grow and evolve Lady in Violet, and I thank you for stopping by every week to see what’s going on over here.  I’ve been brainstorming and working on some exciting new posts, goals, and ideas for the future of the blog.  I can’t wait to see what adventures the next six years hold!

Now let’s get to the topic we all love to discuss – fashion! When fall hits, I know I start grabbing for my darker and jewel toned colors.  Just because we are in the heart of fall does not mean you can’t still style those bright summer colors.  I’m sharing five different ways to style a bright color in the fall season.  I styled all of these with my bright blue sweater, but these would work for all of your summer brights.

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT COLORS IN FALL

WITH DARK BLUE JEANS & BOOTIES

Dark blue jeans are my go to must have jean for fall.  It works well with all the colors.  It provides the dark contrast needed for bright colors to ease them into fall.

WITH BLACK JEANS & BROWN BOOTS

Another staple providing great contrast to bright colors is a pair of black jeans.  Brown leather boots are another great pairing to help compliment the bright color.

WITH WHITE JEANS & TAN BOOTS

Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t pull out those white jeans.  White pants are the perfect way to make those bright colors really pop.  For shoes, look for a light colored boot or bootie to simulate a winter white type look.

WITH A PLAID SKIRT

Plaid skirts are perfect for pairing with bright colors.  You can find a dark or neutral plaid like this black and white skirt to add contrast or opt for a plaid skirt that also has your bright color in the plaid.  When doing a color match, I prefer the matching color to be a minor color in the plaid print.

WITH GRAY JEANS & BLACK BOOTS

Gray jeans are a fun neutral color jean to have in your denim arsenal.  The cool color of this sweater and cool tone of the gray work to compliment each other perfectly.
