Bright, bright colors… we couldn’t get enough of them in 2011 and they are definitely here to stay for 2012. Even Pantone’s color of the year—Tangerine Tango—agrees with this!
We also think ‘splash of colors’ is such an appropriate theme for Fashionese Daily’s fifth anniversary, because this family has been through such colorful five years. So it’s just natural that we’re throwing several events and contests that are multicolors-themed.
To give you ideas on how to apply colors on your look, we’re giving you a bunch of fashion eye-candies for inspiration.

COLORS ON NEW YORK FASHION WEEK STREET STYLES
In the western world, bright colors are associated with spring and summer, but nowadays, colors are what saving people from the dread cold of fall and winter. It still makes you smile while surviving the cold! So it’s actually a year-round trend, and this is proven on the streets of New York Fashion Week this year, where many fashionistas insert brights on their ensembles despite the gray weather.

TIPS: SPLASH OF COLORS ON NEUTRALS
I understand some of you may not be too keen on wearing a full-on neon outfit, but you can still throw a little splash of color into your daily get-up. Shift into a classic neutral—tan, stone, charcoal and of course, black—then put it into overdrive with a burst of color, such as red, orange, cobalt blue or teal.
If you’re not up for bright colors on your clothes AT ALL, you can pile them colors on accessories or makeup.
Remember, splash of colors doesn’t always have to be solid
