LUX’s best picks of colorful dresses
Many of us fashion fans have a cute little black dress in our wardrobes, but, you shouldn’t forgot just how great a little, colourful dress can be.
Little, colorful dresses are a great way to add some cheer to your wardrobe this year! They are available in a rainbow of colours, have a great fit and look amazing with fun accessories. A little, colorful dress is all you need to brighten your day!
Bright Shift Dresses
A well-fitted shift dress can be so elegant. It covers up your stomach, making it ideal for ladies with more of an apple shape who want to hide this area. Elegant shift dresses in bright colours are a great way to show off your legs, especially when they’re matched with high heels and an updo. Try it out when you next get the chance.
Panelled “Body Con” Dress
If you have a slim and toned body, a “bodycon” dress in bright colors will really show off all of your hard work. Just make sure you choose a dress that looks classy and does not show off too much skin. This is an evening look that goes best with sculpted heels.
Good advice is to pair a low neck dress with a low hemline (around or just below the knee). More unusual colours work with a sheath dress such as purple, orange and yellow, but be careful with red unless you know how to match it with subtle accessories.
Do you prefer to mix bright colours and patterns? We certainly do! We love the pretty print mini dresses we have seen around, especially those with the recent colour-block trend or fun florals.
Pink is having lots of attention in 2015. Icy pastels are also popular; from chilly blues to minty-greens, dazzling cobalt blue and Hermès orange. For more subtle tones, select tangerine, lemon, lime and cayenne (a peppery reddish orange). Colour not for you? Gold and silver add a shimmer of glamour, and black and white are always in fashion.
