Easy Ways to Incorporate Color into Your Wardrobe

1. Grab a Bright Bag
Neutral wardrobe staples get an effortless spring update thanks to bright arm candy, as shown on the runway at Burberry. Look for a structured bag with refined hardware, which projects polish and panache.

2. Sport a Pair of Eye-Catching Shades Make a chic statement with sunglasses in jewel-tone shades, like purple, blueberry, or orange (inspired by the punchy options seen on Prada's spring runway). Avoid looking clownish by choosing classic frames that are in proportion to your face oversize.

3. Let a Bold Bra Peak Out This season, you'll want your bra to show through. Layer it under a flowy, sheer top, like the ladylike-with-a-twist looks at Proenza Schouler's spring show. Try a full-coverage style in a cheerful (read: not overtly sexy) color, like neon lemon or royal blue.

4. Get Noticed in Candy-Colored Sandals The perfect companion to wide-leg pants, ankle-length skinnies or flowing skirts, pop-bright sandals complement this season's minimalist and white-on-white trends (as seen at the Dries Van Noten show). Tip: These shoes will draw attention downward, so make sure toes are neatly polished with a pretty neutral shade.

5. Throw on a Vibrant Watch Crayon-colored tickers, like the chunky styles shown at Balenciaga's spring collection, add a burst of energy to standard workday ensembles and perk up your weekend jeans-and-tee uniform. And it can work for day or night: Dress it up with a stack of bangles (just make sure the bracelets' metal matches the tone of the hardware on your timepiece) for evening.
