We're color obsessed, but not without good reason — changing up the color on your clothes has a powerful effect on your style. If you've feared venturing into brighter palettes, we're here to set you straight — well, us and a batch of street style from celebrities and real girls alike that speak perfectly to our point. With gorgeous hints of attention-grabbing kelly green, these styled examples prove the color impact is huge — and not at all hard to master. Throw on a brilliant green blazer with a camel sweater, à la Dree Hemingway, or a silky green top to further the interest of another eye-popping color. We're drawn to it for its peppy, preppy feel — and we're clearly not alone. Click through to see how these celebs and street stylers are working the statement color right now, then shop the pieces for yourself.
Some things are meant to go together — peanut butter and chocolate, pumpkin pie and whipped cream. The same can be said of this classic pairing: camel and denim. Just a glimpse of Crystal Renn showing off the color combo in Vogue Germany or Vogue's Meredith Melling Burke's effortlessly crafted street style (with trench in hand), and we fall even more in love with it. It exudes both timelessness — thanks to those rich camel tones — and cool — thanks to casual, easy denim pieces. We love both textures and fabrics on their own, but you have to admit, there's something special about them coming together. Now, click through to peruse and shop a few of our favorites to get the look.

Well, color me happy, seems like J.Crew's a fan of the unexpected color combination, too. In fact, this month, the label's Looks We Love is all about inspired, brilliant hues and how they pair pretty with our other favorite colors. It's not necessarily what you'd expect for Winter, but that's why we love it — fuchsia cigarette pants, an olive blazer, and marigold in every shade. Step inside to satisfy your color craving.
