Spring Trend #3: Crayola Bright Colors  

18 comentarios

This will lighten your spring for sure! After a dark fall, what we needed was some really bright colors in our wardrobe. So here they are! What do the designers say?:

This is a very fun trend! But what if this is too much color for us? What if we mix and match so many colors that it is definitely too much? What if we end up looking like a carrot from head to toe? Well, the tip is to wear one item (dress, top, skirt or trousers) in a fun bright color, and the rest of accessories (shoes, sandals, jewelry, bag) in brown colors (chocolate, cafe au lait, etc)

So, how to be colorful and still wear handmade? After searching through Etsy (this time it really took me a looong time, and most items are vintage!), this is what I found: (click on the image to see full size)


Sellers from top to bottom, left to right (link to the item): flytie, ahmbular, vintageitville, junkenvyEtsy, JacobsEye, mybabesboudoir, kelseygenna, greenbelts, ahmbular, liasaun1, peoplescouture, roadtripjournal, sparklecouture, themachinestops, RebeccasArtCloset, meristem, owleyesvintage, smashing, owleyesvintage, VerreEncore

Here I only showed the items with bright colors. If you want to achieve the look wearing something bright and combine with neutral colored accessories, then pick one from these items and add some accessories from your wardrobe :)

Did you like this trend? Will you be wearing anything like this? As always, love to hear your opinion and ideas!

    I love bright colors! I always mix and match odd colors... I sometimes wonder if people think I may be a bit of a clown.
    I don't even know how to make balloon animals!

    Hi! Don't hesitate in buying anything in the photo... :)

    I don't want to promote anyone with this, just to show etsy finds that are into this particular trend. But helping fellow sellers is never bad hehe
