Wearing bold color and pattern can be a little intimidating, no matter your size. It can be so easy to go for the black on black look, especially for those of us who have closets full of it.  While black is flattering on most everyone, it is important to not shy away from bright, bold color, which can highlight your favorite body part, add length, make your eyes pop, and mix up your current wardrobe. As always, buying items that fit well is the first step to creating a flattering wardrobe no matter the hue.  So to help those of your who are a little nervous about incorporating color into your wardrobe, here are our PLVSH stylists’ top 3 ways to ease in color into your look.

Shop the Look: Poppies Fit & Flare Dress | Nude Pump | Rebecca Minkoff Blue Envelope Clutch

When color is broken up into a reasonably sized printed fabric it can be less overbearing.  If you are taller go for the bigger prints, shorter choose more delicate prints.  This poppy dress has a nice balance of bold color and detail.  Perfect for spring!
