Be a Fashion Victim! This summer is the perfect opportunity to have fun with fashion. Get on the bandwagon for summer's biggest and most fun trend: the pop of bright color. So go for it!
Build a bright, bold wardrobe for the Hamptons. Take a risk and embrace colors you might not typically gravitate towards. Go for colorful accessories. Buy bright. Buy multiples. Mix and match. Wear contrasting colors. Set color against summer's go-to neutral: white. White is to summer what black is to winter...everything goes with white! Summer is the greatest season to take a risk and wear a color you would never wear before. Whether subtle or bold, sporty or artistic, here are eight great pieces for this summer:
