The fact that the fashion industry defines the “Earth Tone” color scheme as flat, muted versions of brown, tan, orange and green is not something that I particularly agree with. The Earth is a magnificent, beautiful place filled with bright, vibrant colors to be described as anything but flat.
Think of the breathtaking aqua waters of Tahiti or Mexico. A bright, floaty dress in this color would be nothing less than summer perfection. Aqua is such an amazing color that seems to brighten the skin of just about any tone. I dare say it is timeless.
What about a bright pink which can be found blooming on the flowers of any tropical oasis? A stunning pump in this color would be the perfect accent to breath life into a nude colored dress, or simply mix it in with an already bright ensemble for a more eye-catching effect.
There are so many other choices: Lime, coral, fiery red. All of these colors that we so adore are derived from nature. This summer, why not re-invent the “Earth Tone” pallet and strut yourself to a bright, playful season.
