The Primaries: A Mixto

Lots of little items in bold primary colors have been catching my eye over the past week, and it’s all been sort of hearkening back to an Andy Warhol vibe — graphic, bold color contrasts in high-def.

First up: as mentioned in my {covets} section, I’ve migrated from my obsession with Alexander Wang’s Emile to Alexander Wang’s Prisma ($685, Net-A-Porter).  I think I’d snag it in the toffee color, but this bold blue is arrestingly attractive:



Shifting gears entirely, from arm to foot, check out these affordable ankle duck boots ($32, Target), in cheery cherry red:



And how about a fun little clutch {er, really an iPad case, but I’d wear it as a clutchski — Reed Krakoff, $590, Net-A-Porter}:


Either would look awesome with some skinnies, a white blouse, and a pop of green in the form of these cute, retro-style loafers ($100, TopShop):


As for accent pieces for home, how about these quick pick me ups in bold primaries?  First, a couple of bold ikat bowls to store little odds and ends ($8, C. Wonder):

Or, how about a punchy orange chevron throw ($135, Furbish) with some bold pillows ($75 each, Luxury Monograms):

Or, update your walls with some of these whimsical Paris v. New York prints ($24 a pop, Society 6):

Or, how ’bout one of these acrylic monogram necklaces ($58, Moon and Lola)?

For a bit more punch, condsider these neon-lined linen crossbodies from Theyksens Theory ($325 for small, Barney’s; $425 for medium from Barney’s):


For another bold statement, consider this beaded bib necklace ($45, Swell Caroline).  I own this exact style and rock it all summer long with little white dresses and simple white tees, and it gets compliments every second of the day.  And it’s only $45!  Slam dunk.


Pair with these funky velveteen sloafers (on sale for $139, Cynthia Rowley) — do you LOVE the embroidered scarab?!  So sick!

Or swap out the bold necklace above for some splashy enorma-studs ($32 a pop, Loren Hope):
