Bold and Bright: Summer 2012

May 24, 2012

The fun filled days of summer are here to stay and according to fashionistas everywhere, so are bold and bright colors.  It is time to finally get rid of the dullness of winter and start making moves toward color to represent the seasonal change. Image, beach, ferris wheel, pier, Santa Monica, California, summer, fun

The challenge arises when introducing accessories to a colorful outfit. The outfit is already busy with color; accessories appear to be out of the question. However, there are solutions. This season is about making a simple yet, bold statement which can be accomplished through bold color and simple accessories.

One of the biggest fashions trends increasing this summer is color blocking. This concept comes from pairing up two bright solids usually with little to no accessorizing (unless you are a risk taker). Using bright colors is a brilliant way to represent the mood of summer.

Due to the introduction of color blocking, neon is back. We see celebrities such as Katy Perry, donning neon any chance she gets (even as a hair color). These vibrant colors can be kept simple in outfits because they speak for themselves

One bold accessory can change an entire look. Statement necklaces are being worn down the red carpet, to the grocery store and everywhere in between. This simple accessory can make any outfit sing.

Now that you know how to find glasses that will fit your face shape (https://claritieyes.wordpress.com/2012/04/27/look-spectacular-in-spectacles/), it’s time to find out which glasses will pull together these bold summer trends.

In addition to Jennifer Love Hewitt’s statement necklace, she chose glasses with larger frames. The accessories are simple, yet continue the bold theme. The necklace draws in attention that is balanced by the larger frames. She looks great without having overpowering accessories.

Neon is tricky. Glasses for a neon or color blocking outfit need to create contrast. Zooey Deschanel exhibits a wonderful balance: her colorful top is paired with smaller, yet bold frames. The contrast of neon with the black frames brings a slight dramatic touch to the outfit without being excessive.

Here are some of our favorite Clariti eyeglasses to help put together these looks
