Bright Ideas for Black Addicts

For day:

Reader question:

I usually wear a lot of black, and I want to brighten up my look for spring with more colors.  I have an olive complexion with dark hair, and a curvy figure.  Can you recommend ways to incorporate some of the bright spring colors in stores into my wardrobe for day or a night out?  I usually shop at Macy's and Lord and Taylor, so if you could show items from those stores that would be helpful!

There are so many gorgeous colors to try for spring, so you'll have lots of options to choose from!  For your coloring, any rich, saturated jewel tone will look amazing on you.  Colors like turquoise, sapphire blue, and fuchsia will complement your olive skin perfectly.  If you really want to up the wow factor for a night out, choose a dress that accentuates your curves.  Pair a brightly colored cocktail dress with a beautiful metallic clutch, accessories, and nude heels to complete the look.  The dresses linked above and the turquoise dress from this post would all be great options for a date night look.  Here are some other good picks to add some sizzle to your next night out on the town:
