We associate colors with different things and they have different meanings that we may interpret subconsciously. Take this Shine Bright look for example. Orange is the focus color, which combines the energy of red and happiness of yellow. It is associated with sunshine and the tropics and represents enthusiasm, determination, creativity, success, encouragement and stimulation. Someone who doesn't realize the meaning of this color, may associate it with a dreamsicle, which will excite them about their memories as a child when they used to eat them or they may think of summertime fun.
Wearing bright colors also makes you stand out so more people are likely to compliment you on your look. You'll feed off of those compliments and become happy as a result. If you're someone who likes to grab attention, there's nothing like wearing bright colors. You'll definitely grab everyone's attention in bright colors and it will make your day brighter because you'll feel important from all the attention.
STYLE TIP: It's important to realize that your color choices should align with your entire ensemble. Don't wear bright colors just to wear them, especially if it is not appropriate for the occasion or if the pieces are simply dreadful. This Shine Bright look includes a BCBG Max Azria lace shift dress, Kate Spade stud earrings, a Leith faux-pearl ring, geranium and lipstick pink Kate Spade pumps and a Vince Camuto leather clutch.
This look is gorgeous and appropriate for Easter Sunday, a fancy dinner or for a special event. With the lace detail of the dress and its saffron orange color, it's complimented with subtle but exquisite jewelry. The color-blocked heels maintain the bright look and stand out from the dress but the pop of sunset orange in the clutch brings your focus back to the dress. This woman is likely to have a brighter day whenever she wears this look.
