10 Ways to Wear Bright Colors #4

4. Add Brights to Black.

Brights and black? It's no longer frowned upon as being "too '80s." Now, the hippest looks pair black with shocking brights. Cobalt and black is one of our favorite looks, like Lydia Hearst-Shaw is wearing. And black tights with bright blue shoes has been a runaway hit.

Mini Dress - COS
Heels - D&G

I believe black goes with ANYTHING. (I'm sure there's a rule written about it somewhere) As much as I wanted to use a pair of heels much brighter than this one and just as fit with the dress, I really didn't have much to choose from. 

This is a perfect way of using your brights.  As for this outfit, it speaks for itself.  Even if all you have on is a dress and a pair of heels, always make sure that it can stand out on its own.  Pick a fashionably classy but simple short dress, preferably in plain and very dark in color. Then match it with a pair of smashing heels.

There's a reason why a little black dress is a must have, and it's because it can be matched with anything. 

Charlize Theron is one gorgeous celebrity that I know of who goes with hardly any accessories.  All she has is her natural beauty and an awesome outfit that turns anyone's heads.
