Bright colors can be the main feature of your glamorous look, as long as you give them the space they need to really sizzle. More modern gowns look best decked out in splashy, vibrant colors, with the mermaid gown and sheath gown styles at the top of the list.
Both body-hugging styles can offer a full-length splash of a sizzling color, with the mermaid gown adding extra pizzazz in a contrasting flare of skirt that kicks into existence at the knee. Short cocktail dresses can also rock the look, especially if they have modern cuts or features.
Skin tone. Vibrant colors look dazzling on a wide range of skin tones. These include lighter skin with or without freckles, medium tones with brown or auburn hair, super-pale skin and darker tones that make bright colors absolutely pop.
Accessories. Going all-out with a full palette of matching, bright colors on your accessories might be enough to make your date’s head spin. Instead opt for neutrals or a complimentary pastel shade that neither detracts nor tries to exactly match the main hue.
Another major caveat for wearing bright tones is to make sure nothing clashes. This goes for the colors of your clutch, shoes and gemstones as well as your hair. Bright red hair, for instance, may not look its best next to a bright orange dress, although it could look dazzling next to a jazzy emerald green.
Use these tips to make your own splash in a vibrant gown, but be prepared for plenty of compliments and attention!
