Chromatic dressing is about more than just color. While vibrant hues and dynamic shades may catch the eye of onlookers and passersby, the heart of chromatic dressing is found in the feeling of a power color. Whether it's a presentation at work or a date you've been anticipating, a power color can give you that extra "mmph" to be your best self. From crimson to cerulean, chromatic and colorful pieces serve to elevate, empower, and enrich your wardrobe and style.

There is no designer more synonymous with color than Christopher John Rogers (pictured above, left, below). From his dynamic prints to his intensely vibrant stripes, the designer never fails to make color cool. 

Chromatic dressing isn't just for the warmer seasons. This Alemais dress (pictured right, below) is perfect for summer, but the colors easily transition to fall, enabling you to keep your wardrobe vibrant all year round. Pair it with a sandal for summer and, when the weather gets cold, throw it on with a sweater and boots.

Head-to-toe color can be intimidating. Pairing a print, like this skirt from Lee Mathews (pictured left), with a neutral can serve to balance out a vibrant print. Don't forget the cardinal rule, either: pink IS a neutral, especially on a shoe. 

Colorful dressing doesn't mean sacrificing cool factor. This Dries Van Noten set (pictured right) is chic and colorful without overwhelming its wearer. Plus, the set is easily broken apart and styled with other pieces in your wardrobe: pull a solid pant or top in colors from the print, and you've got outfit options for seasons to come.

Sometimes, one color is all you need. This Proenza Schouler dress (pictured left, below) paired with a sandal in the same color family makes for a head-to-toe, showstopping look. In this case, matchy-matchy is the way to go. 

Rianna and Nina, a Paris-based duo with vintage fabric obsessions, are great people to turn to when in need of a pop of color. Vibrant tones combined with interesting prints make speaks-for-itself, simple-styling, throw-and-go color you don't have to think too much about.
