Oversized and voluminous looks give new meaning to bold hues

Going into spring and summer, the only thing people can think of is color. The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and your wardrobe is picking up on the vibrant tones and bold shades. This season, what if instead of just pumping up the color, you also turn up the volume? Oversized silhouettes will breathe life into your essentials. The newfound structure will change not only your shape but also your outlook on life, because after all, the bigger, the better. Right girls!

Layering is key in making your outfit runway ready. Start with the basics: a burnt orange COURREGES Rib Knit Top, for a pop of color. Then, add a forest green VALENTINO Contrast Stitched Jumpsuit on top. The primary colors will blend with each other, giving you a spirited glow. Finish off your look with a white THE ROW Fran Vest for extra texture and fluidity. Don’t stop there! Tie the look together with a bright yellow AZZEDINE ALAIA Bracelet Leather Bucket Bag, because it’s all in the details.

Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crown. The MAISON RABIH KAYROUZ Orange Fitted Woven Top is more of an artful marvel than a simple vest. Go for a similar colored pant; pink CHRISTOPHER KANE High Waisted Trousers says lively and mischievous. While a wool blend CELINE Wrap Skirt layered over gives it an element of sophistication. Need a more muted color palette? We hear you. Channel the pastels of spring with a baby blue ACNE STUDIOS Afsan Fluid Jacket and matching Fluid Pants. The flowy material gives you plenty of room to dance to your rhythm. Add a delicate pink MARNI Long Sleeve Mockneck Blouse for a feminine touch.

Ruffles are the easy way out for any shape-shifting effect. The age-old design will always give an extra bounce to your outfit. Layer a pink CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC Pleated Maxi Dress with a LOEWE Broderie Anglaise Ruffle Top. The stand out pink will steal the show, but no worries, ruffles can always find a way to stand on their own. The bright green ROSIE ASSOULIN Cape Silk Jacquard Top is a regal blouse with its high neck, and the open back remains playful and modern.

Always remember to give your accessories the place they deserve. They can be your biggest ally when trying to find chic finishing touches. Play it up with retro red CÉLINE Cat Eye Sunglasses. Or, go for fashion’s it-glasses and wear the SAINT LAURENT Sunglasses that everyone is eyeing. Be daring when it comes to accessorizing. A yellow CALVIN KLEIN 20539NYC Shearling Scarf can be just the thing to set your outfit apart. Amplify the look with gold CÉLINE Hoops or REBECCA DE RAVENEL Large Twisty Gold Earrings . They will surely add a few whimsical daydreams to your colorful appeal.
