Style is not always black and white. While this particular color duo may always be fashion’s favorite, it’s no secret that for 2013 designers are pretty partial to rich reds, electric blues, and dusty pink — amongst many other hues making their way to the fashion forefront. Designers are going out of their way to out-do everyone else’s color palettes and pattern choices this season. The only issue with these daring designs is when and how to wear them without looking misplaced and a little bit ridiculous. The best place to find yourself standing out in the crowds of black and white garments is in evening and event-wear. While a little black dress is always a number one wardrobe staple, there are certain occasions that call for something a little more extravagant. And when those occasions come, you want to be well prepared to stand out in the right way. The best things to do when wearing a bright or unusual color are to determine your personal style and to go fairly light on accessories. While wearing an out of the box color might seem uncomfortable, as long as you are well established in your personal style and add it in small doses, you should come out looking simply perfect.
For this particular post I decided to choose some “personal styles” that seem to be fairly prominent and added in touches of some of this seasons hottest colors to demonstrate how easy it is to change things up from the little black dress for evening.
