With the birds and blooms in full effect, it’s hard not to be tempted to incorporate a bit of color into your life. Yes, we get it and embrace it — summer goth is definitely still a thing, and its allure has never faded for many of us.
But what about the other fun stuff?
What about the colors, the graphic prints, and playful motifs? When we limit our world to a colorless rainbow of grayscale, are we limiting our emotions, too?
Incorporating color into your life can truly lift your mood, and there’s science to back it up. “Color is simply energy — energy made visible. Colors stimulate or inhibit the functioning of different parts of our body. Treatment with the appropriate color can restore balance and normal functioning,” says holistic health practitioner Laurie Buchanan, Ph.D.
As much as we love the moody goth minimalist aesthetic and lifestyle, there’s something gloriously fun about a beautiful sunny day with friends or family and perfect weather and flowers everywhere. What if you could distill that happy feeling and glow with a look? These seven plus-size bloggers certainly did. It doesn’t matter if you’re out grabbing a cup of morning coffee to return home for a book and some solitude or joining several friends for a picnic in the park, these vibrantly sunny looks are perfect no matter the occasion.
From glowing solar yellows to bouncy pinks and primary blues, a bit of color can liven the mood and change your day. Paired with trendy silhouettes, you’re sure to turn heads and catch eyes.
Check out these amazing looks — they’re pure sunshine.
