Summer means viva bright colors! Well, that's not a direct translation, but the season's ripe for wild neon and warm colors as bright as the sunset. For some, the vivid fun only comes once a year. In the Southwest, however, it's 365 days of sweet sun inspiration. We take a peek at Santa Fe, New Mexico style for the best ways to pull off bold looks that keep it classic and comfortable.

First things first, don't let the hues control you! Go far out with color using fun tank tops and pops of color with neon shoes. The return of tie-dye means great tops and distressed cut-off shorts made for music festival season. What better way to complement the sunset shades than with barely-there nudes and desert browns? Pattern it pretty with Santa Fe-inspired fabrics such as hand-crocheted shorts, classic checkered prints. Chic, cultural yet comfortable - it's time to head Southwest!
