Ready to say sayonara to all of winter’s boring black and welcome spring with a rush of color? French Connection–hitting Gilt tomorrow at noon!–is full of bright ideas for the season, and we’ve rounded up three chic ways to incorporate the season’s hottest hues into your wardrobe.
1. Pair brights with white to give them the most oomph. It’s amazing what a simple white shirt can do to make the wildest colors seem wearable. A pair of pool-blue crepe pants ($69) feels completely fresh and unintimidating when you wear them with a simple tank.
2. Do neutrals with a pop for a subtle seasonal transition. If there’s still a bitter chill in the air where you live, it might feel inappropriate to go full-on brilliant color. Instead, inject just a touch to contrast with your neutrals. We love navy and coral (seen on this colorblock maxi, $79), gray and bright pink, or camel and yellow.
3. Go for it and mix two hot hues. It’s not for fashion wallflowers, but pairing one bold color with another is the perfect way to make a statement this spring. Not sure which ones go together? Choose two that are next to each other on the color wheel, like this chic purple and red dress ($79).
