One of my absolute favorite trends at the moment is brights! There’s just something about color that makes me feel happy. Whether it’s a dress, blouse, pants or accessories, I believe bright pieces are a wardrobe must for every woman and an easy option for instant style injection.

I’ve collaborated with the gorgeous Amy from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins today, to show you our different takes on the bright trend and hopefully give you a little inspiration to add some color to your life!

To keep your look stylish, pair brights with neutrals. This will really make them pop, but also leave you polished and well put together….

I chose to mix my bright jeans with calf hair leopard heels, a white peplum top and a gold bangle. I love the warm feel of mixing coral and gold colors together.

To subtly connect this whole look, I continued the color of my jeans through to my earrings.

Accessories can really make an outfit! I always like to wear a pair of earrings (simple crystal pave studs look spectacular with anything!), a bangle or bracelet and a pair of sunglasses.

Gorgeous on the inside and out, Miriam is one total fashionista! With a unique eye for style and an enviable knack for putting together classic combinations with a glam twist, not only has she mastered the look of stripes and sequins (two of my all time favorite things!), but also has a perfectly transitional spring look down pat. I’m sure you’d agree, mixing prints can be a challenge for even the most fashion savvy among us, but Miriam rose to the occasion and created a fabulous look for this pattern mixing challenge!
