This morning as I scrolled through various social media, I saw a link to the Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer Ready to Wear show. I was amazed to see all these summery pops of color among his usual neutrals. The colors reminded me so much of the juicy brights of Zooey from Juniper Moon. Bright colors are cheerful and fun and speak to everything good about summer. But maybe you're more comfortable in quiet neutrals. I get that. Neutrals are safe, and you don't have to think about it. But even if you prefer quiet tones, it's good to throw in a pop of color. Color elevates your mood and makes you happy even if you're not. Nothing puts a smile on your face like a brilliant top in your favorite shade or a carefree scarf in a cheerful bright.
I pinned some of the images from my favorite designers ready-to-wear collection, but here are a few to show you what I mean. Ralph Lauren is not exactly known for brights, but his spring collection includes a few pieces in eye-popping shades that give the line energy and excitement. I like this easy fitting jacket in tangerine. Just a touch packs a lot of punch.
Even Carolina Herrera is featuring a pinch of bright
As a knitter, you can get this look with a simple open cardigan in like this one in Zooey from Juniper Moon.
It's a fun and easy way to give your summer wardrobe a fresh look and bring some happy to every single day.
I look forward to seeing you in the shop and around the table! You are always welcome here.
