Adam Says: I'm seeing tons of happy, saturated shades—fuchsia, teal, yellow. You can combine contrasting brights, like Yves Saint Laurent famously did. Or wear one color in different hues. Anything coral or orange is especially fresh.
What to Consider
Yellow is tough to wear near your face unless you have dark skin or hair. Fair-skinned women look best in warm, rosy tones. Orange, red, and pink look good on everyone, not just Barbie—really!
For day, wake up neutral clothes with a vivid shoe or bag. After hours, pair colorful clothes with metallic accessories.
Bright colors attract the eye, so if you're hippy, try a notice-me top with plain—or equally intense—bottoms.
