Today's Everyday Fashion: Seasonal Brights

Two different seasons, same color story. The one on the left is a great look for fall or winter. My look is way more informal and way more summer, and would be great for someone with a casual dress code like a teacher. I am totally intrigued by the idea of wearing bright colors in cold weather this year. One of my biggest fashion goals this fall is to do a better job incorporating brights into my cold weather wardrobe. Do you wear bright colors in the winter, or do you reserve them for warmer months only?
