Vibrant Colors & Patterns

From bold and bright to subtle and neutral, color plays a huge part within the fashion industry each and every spring/summer.  This SS15, it doesn’t matter how you choose to wear these statement pieces -- vivid prints and vibrant color-block pieces are both right on-trend -- it's all about wearing something that makes you stand out.

Here’s are our 5 top tips for nailing these seasonally appropriate bright, vibrant colors and prints in a sophisticated and stylish way:

  1. Stick to neutrals to create harmony and balance things out. With on-trend shoe colors like black, white, cream, beige, blush, brown and grey, you can never go wrong. This works for accessories too, such as bags, belts or scarves. Metallic jewelry pieces (bronze, gold and silver) always look chic with vibrant outfits too.

  2. Denim and Leather - perfect for the bay. Pair shift dresses, like KUT’s Jenay Sheath or plain Sheath, with your favorite faded denim or leather jacket. A perfect finish to your outfit for wine tasting in Napa, lunch alfresco in Burlingame, or sightseeing in San Francisco.

  3. Keep it simple.  Polish off your bold look by keeping your accessories simple and cool.  Rock your favorite sunglasses (Aviators) and a pair of minimal leather sandals (Flo-jos) and you are ready to go.

  4. Make it look effortless. SS15 is all about the 1970s inspired Romantic Bohemian.  Soft, flowy, feminine, ethereal and dreamy - romantic bohemian dresses like KUT’s Charlotte Hanky Dress offer a style that is clean, chic and casual.  Chloe, Janel Dyan's newest style muse, is rocking her look with ankle boots for San Francisco Outside Lands! (We'll be there!)

  5. Show off your curves.  Ruched stripes are slimming, especially when belted, flatters the figure and can add some edge to your look. Luckily KUT’S Avy dress come with a belt!   For a chic office look, add a pop of color with a cool zipper moto jacket.  The Avy dress is perfect for business travel too.  The silky soft rayon-jersey is easy fabric that packs and unpacks beautifully.

  6. An outfit within the same color hues can be just as striking as a bold pattern. Wearing a single shade is a simple, clean approach to the classic monochromatic look - creating one line from head to toe and lengthening your silhouette for a taller, slimmer appearance.
