It's official: Color is the new black

{ LIJA Pursuit Collection }
Nothing says springtime fashion like bright colors do and especially after the long cold winter many of us had, they are much needed! If you haven't noticed already, designers are favoring ravishing reds, plush purples and bright blues in all their spring/summer collections. Strong hues are no longer solely for the fashion's risk takers; they're for everyone. 

Worried you're going to look like a box of crayons?  No worries. We're here to give you a few tips on how to pull of this seasons trend without looking silly.

The biggest rule to wearing brights is to always pair them with neutrals. For example, LIJA's newest collection, Pursuit features bright pops of Salsa (bright red) and subtle hues of Olive. Coordinate these beautiful bold colors with White, Putty (dark green), or stone and you have a crisp and classic springtime look.

Featured items:
(1.)  Lija Moda Fille Polo Salsa (2.) Lija Atomic Plaid Skort (3.) Lija Myth Lasting Polo (4.) Lija Mira Kaleidoscope Skort

{ add bright accessories }
Not sure about wearing a bright bold outfit, trying adding a bright-colored accessory. Keep the outfit a solid color like this AUR Golf Dress (Rumberry) or neutral, and add a bright colored golf accessories from Glove It Riviera Collection: like the ladies Riviera golf glove, tote bag or the popular Glove It Golf Bag.

And lastly, if you are wearing a bright top or dress, please avoid the colored eyeshadows to match. Not sure who started this trend, but if you keep your makeup simple, your entire appearance will look effortlessly balanced. Otherwise, you may be mistaken for a circus clown.

The key is knowing what colors look good on you. Not all colors look good on everyone, so stick to the one that works best for you.
