I love colors. I was born with a great love for vibrant and charming colors. When I was still teaching, I did my laundry and was hanging my dresses, skirts and scarves one Sunday afternoon when some students visited me. They commented on my hanged clothes, “they look like Christmas tree!”
Seeing some of the bright looks from Gucci Fall 2011 RTW collection, I totally fell in loved. These outfits will surely improve my mood given this dull and gray weather over here. Plus I love furs, they´re very glamorous on cold seasons.
I need to get these runway looks, but I don´t have a budget to blow. Instead, I scoured the net searching for pieces to mix together to mimic these inspiring vibrant looks. But I don´t promise to copy them as closely as possible for I created my own versions.
Outfit 1: The Coveted Cropped Look
I don´t have to say much, each piece of this look is coveted. I went for a really vibrant orange cropped pants teamed with a complementing rich yellow sweater, pulled together with a deep blue faux fur coat. I can be unforgiving when it comes to colors, a yellow-green clutch and statement platforms are my best accessory picks for this combo.

Note: Only wear this look when the temperature doesn´t hit freezing degrees. Otherwise, you´ll have to swap the platforms for tall boots in brown.
Outfit 2: Must-Have Bright Winter Look
Since mid-fall up to this winter, I barely see the sun and it´s always gray and dark. Wearing bright colors these days has become my mantra since I couldn´t bare even more dull colors. While creating this look, I imagine how bright you´d look, easily spotted against the crowd. And yet you´re cozily and stylishly bundled up for fur coats are guaranteed to make you feel warm. Just think of how much your friends would covet those delicious blue tall boots!
