Brighten Up Your Wardrobe

I'm not a big fan of Paris Hilton, but some of the pieces from her Paris Hilton Sportswear clothing line (check out some of her pieces here) inspired this entry. I loved the pretty green dress from her collection, and that got me looking for bright-colored tops and dresses that would be perfect for the summer.

Lemon yellow and electric blue are some of my summer color picks that you can still take with you to the next season. Colors such as neon pink and orange are a tad too loud and trendy, but it still depends on the item, and of course, your personal style; (I can never argue with that!)

Here are a few of my personal picks.

YELLOW. The silk tube dress is very sexy. To make it less revealing, you can throw an airy crocheted shrug or bolero over it. The halter dress is just as hot and it can already be worn alone. You can easily brighten up any outfit -- even just a t-shirt and jeans -- with a yellow striped scarf. In this heat, scarves with thin fabrics are best worn on your head like a headband or on your waist as a belt.

PINK. I'm not much of a "pink girl" but I love this pink strappy dress! It's got just the right shade of pink -- not too hot, not too pale and not neon. The style of the dress is also very simple, which makes it easy to fit into every season. It's a keeper!

ELECTRIC BLUE. The blue V-neck top looks fierce! (I recommend wearing bottoms with that, though.) I'd pair it with plain pair of jeans, shorts or a mini to balance off the top's "fierce-ness." Like the pink dress, the blue sleeveless dress on the left is also a closet keeper. The color makes it bold and unexpected, but the style of the dress is a classic.

Then again you can throw on colorful bangles and, voila! You're good to go.

May all your summer days be bright!

i like your summer picks especially the yellow one. Paris Hilton might be a skank and all but she does have taste in fashion
