BRIGHT COLOR TREND ~ Thread Ethic | Modest Fashion

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


I am already looking forward to warmer weather and cannot wait to start wearing bright colors. The bright color clothing trend is strong for Spring 2011 - everything from neons to bright coral, red, yellow, emerald and vibrant blues. Normally, I'm quite paranoid about wearing bright clothing. Maybe I lived in New York City for too long, or have seen too many fashion mistakes made with bright colors (think of any number of pop stars who might fall into this unfortunate category...) but I've usually been timid with color. This spring I'm facing my fears and am wearing red jeans. I know, it's not officially spring yet but I had to look ahead just a little bit. I've also recently purchased an emerald silk blouse I'm super excited about and have a royal blue button-down ready in the arsenal. Here we've shown Fire jeans from Nordstrom, a Banana Republic trench, and scarf from Forever 21. Keep in mind, when working the bright color trend, focus on one bold color per look or you could run into overload territory. Other than that, just enjoy breaking out of winter dullness with all the bright color around.


  1. Alright, I have a goal to wear one bright color every day this week. ...I'd better get planning.

  2. I absolutely love this outfit! I'm a huge fan of bright colors. :) I can't wait till you start doing spring clothes. It's getting very warm here and everybody is already wearing their spring clothes!
