January 2012 Lookbook: Brights, Cubed

Omiru's January 2012 Lookbook: Brights, Cubed
This look is part of Omiru’s January 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece January 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

The world would be a much more boring place in greyscale - and the same goes for your closet.  You could bring life to your look with one bright color….but why not layer on the colors to make your look even more interesting?  Combining three bright colors doesn’t have to be difficult - all you have to do is pair three analogous colors.  Here, we juxtaposed a royal purple against a bright blue, then capped off the look with a pop of sky blue.  Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start with a base of vibrant color - a bright purple blouse over a pair of vividly colored blue jeans.
2. Toss on a winter coat in grey (but keep it interesting with variegated stripes).
3. As for accessories, mix it up with neutrals and a pop of color.  I picked a pair of tan booties (love that buckle detail!) and a gold bangle bracelet - but then gave the outfit even more color with a light blue clutch.  Don’t you love how it pairs with the deep blue pants and the royal purple shirt?

How do you wear color?
