While the action unfolded on the runways of couture fashion week, an equal amount of sartorial commotion stirred up outside on the streets of Paris, where bright, bold shades prevailed among the fashion-girl crowd. The spectrum of gorgeous color pops induced serious hue envy—encouraging us to incorporate them into our own daily wardrobe. It’s an easy styling trick that brings more depth and excitement to a look, and what better time to roll it out than the middle of summer? Here, the season’s best head-turning colors and our tips on how to wear them.
Strappy Frilly Dress
Luxe satin goes hand in hand with this rich shade. Pair an elegant yet sexy floor-grazing dress with a cream clutch and a bold red lip for a romantic date night.
