Bold and bright colors make a statement, but can using more than one bold color in your outfit be too much? Not necessarily. Like mixing patterns and prints, mixing bold colors can be helped along with a little planning. Consider visually breaking up the standout shades with other muted hues -- for instance, a bold top and a bright pair of shoes won't look so jarring if you wear a neutral skirt to break up the color fields.
If you're still a little reluctant, try bringing in bold shades with brightly colored accessories, like a yellow necklace, a green purse, or bright red shoes. It's a great way to add color without feeling overwhelmed by it.
