If there’s one undeniable trend this spring, it’s color. Everywhere you look this season you find bold patterns and bright hues. But, if you are anything like I used to be, incorporating color into your daily wardrobe can be a tad intimidating. Before I embraced my overwhelming love of vibrant hues, my closet consisted of an impressive array of blues, blacks, and browns. I know, so adventurous. Once I started slowly infusing color into my daily wardrobe, however, I realized how much fun dressing from the rainbow can be. You might not be ready to throw on those kelly green skinny jeans, or a tangerine blouse, but there are a few easy, inexpensive ways to incorporate this season’s hottest color trends without sending you into color-shock.

Between Pantone naming “Tangerine Tango” the color of the year, and a number of vibrant jewel-toned skinny jeans lining the racks in every store, it’s clear that this season, bright colors are where it’s at. If you’re not ready to leave the house feeling like an exclamation mark, however, consider adding a few bold accessories in a bright hue, to your toned down go-to’s. A bright scarf, a statement necklace, or even some cheerful wedges can infuse life into an otherwise drab ensemble, and help ease you onto the color train.

Pastels are a great way to go a little crazy when you’re experimenting with color. Delicate hued pieces are huge this season, and are soft enough that you can leave the house wearing several different coordinating colors without feeling like an Easter egg. Pastels are always heavenly and casually understated. Wearing them can ease you into a more multidimensional daily color regimen, without completely kissing your color comfort zone goodbye.
Now keep calm, and color on ladies.
