{Remix Rewear Restyle} Brights

#remixrewearrestyle brights

Happy Monday, friends! Welcome to Remix Rewear Restyle, a weekly remix challenge to showcase how you style a specific item. My hope is to inspire you {as well as myself!} to remix items already in our closets and gain inspiration from others.

This week’s remix features brights. From color blocking to adding a pop of color to spice up your neutrals, the addition of a bold hue or two is a great way to restyle a favorite outfit.

{My look: neutral tank + mustard cardi + maroon skinnies}

I feel like I could camouflage myself in a pile of leaves with this outfit.
Honestly, pairing these colors pushed me out of my comfort zone,
but isn’t that what this remix is supposed to do?
Mission accomplished. Now please excuse me while I go find a pile of leaves to hide in.

{Emily’s look: statement necklace + plaid + bright pink}

I love the pairing of the “masculine” plaid with a super girly pink!

{Aubree’s look: bold print + bright trousers + neutral accessories}

Neutral accessories are the perfect way to ground an otherwise-bold outfit.

{Iris’s look: comfy tee + cuffed jeans + bright yellow ballet flats}

This is casual done right.
I have a feeling this paired with a cardigan or blazer will be my fall go-to look.

{Selah’s look: chambray + bright flowers}

Ahh chambray. If it ever goes out of style, I’ll get the fashion police called on me.
You can’t go wrong pairing it with a fancy skirt.
As it gets colder, replace the skirt with a pair of colored skinnies and a floral scarf.

{Alex’s look: white button up + bright accessories and bold pants}

A white button up is the perfect canvas for a bright statement necklace.

    I really like your fall colors look! The other looks are great too. I forgot about the remix until I was already at work, so I didn’t get to participate this round. I did have some bright flowers on my skirt, though, so I was somewhat playing along!

    I love the mustard and the maroon, both together and apart! Great remix, as always!

    I looooove your look! Maroon pants are on my wishlist, but I’ve already gone over budget for the month so maybe in October. Your lipstick looks smashing!

    I absolutely ADORE the first outfit! I wore colors similar to it yesterday and just think it screams fall :)
