Don’t let anyone tell you it’s too early to rock a bright wardrobe. Even if the Toronto weather gods are still holding back the sunshine on most days, it’s definitely time to bring out your playful pieces for the new season.
These days we’re digging the bold statement pieces, and especially the colours and styles that have made appearances on some of the most trendy celebs. And although statement pieces tend to scare off many people —we’re here to show you that a bold piece can be as simple or as daring as you want it to be, and can easily be incorporated into your everyday wardrobe.
We’re loving the variety of wearable “bold” pieces that strut down the runways this year. So to help you narrow down the best pieces, we created a list of bold pieces to help you prepare yourself for the warmer weather.
A wearable Kim K neon is the perfect way to make an outfit pop. This fun cami can be paired with absolutely anything and still look amazing.
A bright colour is a great way to stand out and still look put together, so why not save yourself the hassle of pairing pieces and snag a jumpsuit in a colour like red or yellow?
The easiest way to add bold colours to an outfit is with the right shoe. These Chloe wedges are the perfect mixture of colour and texture using different fabrics.
It’s white, but it’s definitely bold. We love the texture on this skirt, and the patterns are definitely eye-catching. Don’t underestimate a simple skirt —it’s totally chic and stands out because of its unique finish.
Wait, a simple slingback is bold? Yes, but this isn’t just any slingback. This braided raffia heel is so chic, and you’ll be Instagram-ready no matter what you choose to pair them with.
We have to admit—we saw this stunning belt on Jamie Paige from JamiePaigeBeauty on Youtube. She sported it with several different outfits on her Instagram page, and we fell in love. A statement belt like that can work some serious magic. The steep price tag means you’ll probably want to invest in this item if you know it’ll be a bold staple you can use for years to come.
Trendy Prints & Patterns
Leopard print is so in, and if you’re daring enough you can pull it off even if it isn’t the trendiest animal print on the market. We love a good blouse that you can dress up or down like this one from All Saints.
Everyone loves a comfortable pair of flowy black pants. These will catch anyone’s attention even if paired with a black top and black shoes—the yellow and red flowers paired with the perfect greenery print on these make this floral pattern hard to pass up. We’d totally rock these with a yellow or red sandal to make the colours pop.
Yellow is the most cheerful colour, so you won’t have to worry about anyone giving you weird looks with this cute floral print blouse. It’s loud but it’s chic! Wear it with confidence, girl.
Another print that we’re loving this year is tie-dye. Not quite the typical rainbow tie-dye, but a toned down version of it in more appealing tones that still allow you to style your outfit with a statement. We’re loving this pink and yellow blend from Zara. Choose from a skirt or cropped t-shirt—or both!
Accessories can also come in several styles, colours, and prints. We love a good tropical print for a spring/summer wardrobe. This scarf is exactly what we need for a cooler evening outing. Throw it on top of a plain outfit and you’re all set.
You can’t go to a beach party without making an impression. This piece will have everyone throwing compliments your way, and you’ll look great in all the photos. Or wear it on a date while you take a stroll in the sun. Either way, an oversized hat will always be a beautiful addition to a summer outfit.
