Spring In Full Bloom
A fruit basket of vibrant colors will be delivered to your closet this spring.
Spring’s true colors are showing in bright turquoise, lemon yellow, emerald green, and fuchsia, along with the return of black and white. As spring fades to summer the color palette will be paler and sun bleached.
There are a few carry-overs from seasons past such as polka dots, trench coats and metallics but spring takes on a brand new look full of variety. Big, bold floral prints are lovely and offer a bouquet of feminine colors. Watercolor prints on silky, flowing fabrics give a feminine feel.
Step out in bold graphic patterns such as color blocking from the 70′s. African inspired prints are also hot. Look for leopard, giraffe and python prints. Tribal prints are featured in mosaics. The nautical look returns, look for navy inspired tunics and blazers and don’t forget a compass pendant.
Dresses and pants
Hourglass silhouettes shape this season’s dresses. Hemlines at the knee or above provide new dress lengths. Updated mini dresses are out on the town. Fun, flirty, full skirts are everywhere. Choose a high-waisted skirt of any length from mid calf all the way to the floor dusters. Floaty dresses in chiffon provide romantic soft lines and ruffles.
High-waisted trousers with wide legs look great with heels for a long, lean look. Pair these wide leg pants with a fitted top and bright, big accessories. Pair skinny pants with a tunic accented with a skinny belt for a casual spring look.
Accessories are making a statement this spring. Bright accessories add punch to any outfit. Big bangles are available in leather, wood, acrylic. Stack them for a modern look. Jewelry ranges from chunky and natural pieces such as a crocheted necklace to elegant crystal drop earrings. Skinny belts look great on the seasons’ dresses and trousers. Shiny patent leather purses, footwear and trench coats will take you where you need to go.
Shoes and more
Wedge heeled shoes and platforms are decorated with flowers and patterns. If comfort is key try the new gladiator sandals embellished with rhinestones. Your shoes could become the new conversation piece over lunch. Handbags range from roomy, big bags to pretty little clutches. Oversize sunglasses will hide your eyes behind this season’s bright-colored bold frames. Show your true colors this spring and summer by selecting the right shades for you, be adventuresome and beautiful.
