I often go through phases when I’m constantly filling my wardrobe with neutrals, and then one day, I am looking for that splash of color and realize how colorless my wardrobe is! I am sure we have all had that moment or two! So this summer, I am loving all things bright, colorful, and feminine. I especially love anything with patterns and a clean cut like this dress which takes me back to the 80's (well almost).
This purple-and-white gingham pattern dress from ModCloth is one of my favorites because of the lovely backline and detailing with the scalloped trim on the neckline and sleeves. It is also under $100 and such a pretty color. If you aren’t used to wearing a lot of color, even investing in a piece like this checkered outfit with two tone colors might seem like a lot but it makes for a great statement outfit. You can always balance an outfit with bold pieces of jewelry or neutral accessories like white shoes and neutral toned bag (love this one from Ted Baker)! I usually try to keep my lipstick shade more on the natural nude side but you can always opt for more color.
I guess at the end of the day, it is always nice to add a little color to your wardrobe for the days when you need more of a statement look.
