This season is all about going bold or going home. Colorful key items and accessories can bring your outfits to life and add some much needed sunshine to your day regardless of the weather forecast.
Sometimes adding a daily dose of color is as easy as swapping out your handbag. Here are a few colorful favorites. Pictured Above - 1. Kate Spade Post Street Nadine Yellow Bag 2. Reed Krakoff Leather Tote 3. Michael Kors Gia Clutch 4. Proenza Schouler PS1 Bag 5. Marc by Marc Jacobs Katie Bag.
If too much color feels like too much commitment you can always start small with accessories. Many of the items featured above are under $100. Experiment with color and texture until you find the right combination that works perfectly for you. Pictured Above - 1. Valentino Cuff. 2. Kendra Scott 'Danielle' earrings 3. BCBG Croc Ring 4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Logo Bracelet 5. Rebecca Minkoff Heart Stone Earrings 6. Juicy Couture Parrot Charm.
And finally, infuse a little color into your life by way of your make-up bag. Color cosmetics are trending in a major way this season and they're a great way to express your personal style. Pictured Above - 1. Make Up For Ever Pure Pigment 2. Nars Purple Eyeshadow 3. Estee Lauder Color Vivid Lipstick 4. Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow 5. Julep Favorite Things Nail Color Set 6. YSL Pure Chromatics Eyeshadow Palette.
