If there’s one thing that puts me in a good mood, it’s the arrival of summer. I eat better, sleep better, get outdoors more, read more, relax more, socialize more, and feel lighter, brighter, and happier! So it’s no surprise that summer also brings out my most joyful sartorial side too. It’s the perfect season to have fun with trends, styles, and colors that speak to my aesthetic. While I admit that most of the year, I tend to lean toward a trusty palette of black and neutrals, I’m never afraid to experiment with a pop of color now and then—especially once the sunny season rolls around.
To get in the summertime spirit, this month, I decided to try some of this season’s chicest color trends and amp up my rotation of basics. I’m always so floored at how many compliments I get when I wear color (which is definitely encouraging me to wear it more often!), and while I’ve tried a handful of runway-approved hues throughout the month, from saturated lemon to muted shades of purple, I found the three colors below to be some of my favorites to wear. Moreover, I received the most compliments and likes on Insta when wearing them. No complaints here!
