I Don't Usually Wear Color, But These 6 Are Really Speaking to Me Right Now

It’s no secret that I have admittedly simple style. My day-to-day outfits often involve mostly classic basics and relatively few colors, if any, and my shopping habits reflect it. However—there’s always a however, isn’t there?—lately, there are more than a handful of hues that keep showing up in my feed and subsequently on my wish list, and it’s been both a surprise and a delight.

Perhaps it’s my subconscious desire for a more emotionally uplifting wardrobe at this time (the same one that has drawn the fashion world into a tie-dye relapse), but dressing colorfully is starting to feel more like what I should be doing all the time and less like the exception. Of course, I haven’t taken it that far yet, but I’m definitely considering it and eyeing the below six shades in particular. To see and shop them all, simply continue on.


Every time I come across this color, I instantly get a smile on my face—and is there any better reason to buy or wear something?


This is a color that wasn't even on my radar until this Donni set came into my life but that I now love (in all its shades). 

Hot Pink

Best Summer Colors



Whether it's in the form of sweatpants or a designer bag, a pop of hot pink makes an otherwise-neutral outfit much cooler.

Powder Blue

Best Summer Colors



I don't think I'll ever stop loving this color, which is one of a few that work for any season.


Best Summer Colors



Aside from being jealous of my colleague Lauren's poolside hang, I'm eyeing her lime bikini top and all other pieces in this hue right now.

Baby Pink

Best Summer Colors



I know what you're thinking: Two shades of pink? What can I say? The heart wants what it wants.
