Returning Trend for F/W 2012: Bright Color

One trend I am particularly pleased to see returning for fall/winter 2012 is the presence of bold bright color. Hot pink, searing red and blossoming orange--to name a few in the spectrum--have been all over the fashion week runways. Pink and red color-blocking (yes, I know: every very serious fashion person is now appalled by this term) was major in both street and celebrity style for this past fall and (I hope) we’ll continue to see it in different and interesting ways as I find it such a great and not-yet-fully-explored color combination.

Colder months can be dark and dreary so it makes beautiful sense to emit your own bit of sunshine by punching up the color in your wardrobe. Who says bright color should be reserved for spring and summer? Whoever they are (were?) it seems they’ve been outvoted yet again.

How do you wear color in fall and winter?
