While browsing the Instagram accounts of our outfit bloggers, I noticed that many of them are having lots of fun with sporting bright colours that fit right into Angie’s Summer Brights Outfit Formula. Here are six that make me smile each time I look at them!
It’s hard to say who steals the show here: Tanja in her fab chartreuse pants suit or her darling doggie! The suit consists of a Modern Classic blazer that is structured on the shoulders, and straight cropped pants. The tucked V-neck, ribbed tank top provides subtle textural interest and lengthens the leg line from the waist down. Tanja continues the earth-toned colour palette with cognac espadrille sandals, a cognac belt, and structured satchel. Dangly earrings, a gold pendant, and oversized sunnies complete the look.
Georgette takes trendy co-ords to the next level with this bright patterned skirt and top set. The top’s square neckline and smocked construction create a streamlined fit, and the smocked design is repeated in the wide waistband of the below-the-knee A-line skirt. The exuberant colours and fluid shapes remind me of an abstract painting. Refined black gladiator sandals echo the black in the garments, and bookend our blogger’s dark hair. Bright red lipstick, pale lilac earrings, and orange sunnies also cleverly refer back to the splendid colour mix.
The unusual combination of teal blue and warm buttercup yellow caught my attention. Dayle has paired yellow cropped straight pants with a thigh-length tunic with asymmetrical hemline that draws the eye up and down. The flowy volume is tempered by the tailored shoulder line and straight trousers. Dayle’s ankle-strap wedge sandals and arty bracelet are an exact match with the yellow trousers. More yellow appears in her funky earrings, round specs, and the show-stopping necklace. Hand-painted fluttering leather butterflies with open cut shapes rest on a bed of denim shapes. It’s a work of art!
This is a fantastic example of Angie’s Patterned Summer Brights Outfit Formula. Choose a statement dress like Debra did here, and you’re almost done. Our blogger’s white maxi kaftan with eye-catching cobalt jungle cityscape and roaming cheetahs does all the talking. The flowy silhouette is breezy for hot Summer days. The long tassels add a playful touch. Bright orange sandals are a nod back to the cheetahs, and make the cobalt pop even more. Bright red toenails and lipstick are the cheerful finishing touches.
Warm marigold is one of those colours that is quintessentially Summer for me, and it suits Greetje beautifully. She is sporting an elegant midaxi fit-and-flare shirtdress that accentuates her waist. Greetje didn’t like how the self-belt rode up around her waist, and decided to wear it as a scarf instead. Genius! Baby blue pointy-toed, block-heeled slingbacks are unexpected and make the marigold shine even brighter. The structured emerald satchel does the same. All three colours are repeated in our blogger’s beautiful dangly earrings and bangle.
Dressy white tapered trousers form the perfect neutral backdrop for Marta’s puff-sleeved breezy blouse with large-scale floral print in shades of orange, red, and pink. The blouse has a front knot that creates a faux-tuck effect, and showcases the gold buttons on the trousers. Our blogger’s footwear and carefully chosen accessories match the colour palette. Her red suede penny loafers add a preppy touch, and have playful gold and red crown adornments. The beaded necklace features an eye-catching pearl and oversized amulet pendant. The knotted orange bag comes with a tiny silk scarf and extra miniature pink bag that ties all the colours together.
