I am a huge believer that bright personalities are attracted to bright color schemes, which is definitely useful when deciding what to wear this summer season. I have noticed an obvious emerging style of pairing secondary colors together in outfits as well as prints. Prada’s summer line showcases this exact trend by highlighting the color orange in numerous outfits while keeping colors like purple and green strung minimally throughout.
If secondary colors are not much of an adventurous leap for you, perhaps you need to look towards On57NewYork for some iridescent inspiration. I love this collection since it combines the various bold colors, classic silhouettes and simple styles of the summer. It blends everything into one easy stylish and colorful fashionista trend. Perfect summer colors this season seem to be cooler and warmer hues, which are somewhat reminiscent of nature. Many clothing lines have adopted a more ethereal look this summer, using understated brights and pale pastels to achieve that dreamlike hazy aura.
I personally gravitate towards the brighter tones of turquoise blues and yellows, most likely because they remind me of water and evoke a feeling of tranquility. At the end of the day, regardless of which colors seem to be in style or trending in the fashion world, you need to feel comfortable and fearless in whichever shade you decide to sport. If your heart is telling you one color but Vogue is pushing for the opposite, choose what looks best on you. The greatest accessory this summer besides your colorful exploration will be the confidence and attitude that comes along with it!
The best part of Summer for me is to explore with bold colorful dresses with patterns, prints and being a little bare. I love accessorizing and color coordinating my outfits with hats, designer handbags and shoes to make some colorful splashes walking the streets of NY. With the Summer officially on here comes a brighter attitude, which leads ladies everywhere to choose outfits that reflect the sunnier ambiance in the air. However, the hard part is choosing from the endless designers whose clothing attempts to mimic the colors, patterns and emotions of summer. One designer over the rest seems to expertly create dresses that allow women to feel cheerful and energized through the warm temperatures of the solstice.
Emilio Pucci knows exactly how to illustrate the good vibrations of the sunny season by using bright patterns and pops of color throughout his clothing. His dresses always seem to radiate a certain kind of energy that transcends to the people wearing them. Women everywhere like to feel confident and cheery when wearing something dressy, which is why Pucci’s playful styles deliver that perfect sparkling essence. Emilio Pucci’s dresses tend to incorporate floral prints as well as vivid designs to allow women to feel good even before slipping into any of his timeless creations. So, ladies, don’t be afraid to face the heat of July head on with a vibrant and bold dress from Emilio Pucci. His styles will envelope you in the succulent satisfaction of summer, which is a feeling that can never be out of style!

Fashion designers love to take risks with these prints and are using florals in unexpected ways on the runways. There are countless varieties of floral dresses to suite your mood and style! Big bright flowers with neon colors can perk up your boring work day. If you’d rather keep it understated, try smaller flowers with pastel colors.

Then to change it up for date night, throw on a pair of glamorous heels with a clutch and you are ready to go! A floral dress even works for the office! Just add a blazer over your dress, with a pair of heels and you are ready to work. This dress is really so versatile, and you will be wearing it time and time again during the summer.
