Every spring, pastels make an appearance but this year there is a subtle sexiness to this candy colored trend, proving it to be the ultimate girly look.
To go for a fresh feminine look, pair up two pastel tones, like a pale rose and creamy beige, bringing the outfit together with neutral piece like a white sheer blouse or nude pumps. Dressing from head to toe in pastel colors can tend to wash you out or look very plain, so look for pieces with interesting details for a more complete look. Go for a lacey top instead of a plain one or a feathery accessory for a touch of femininity and romanticism. The pale creamy colored palette will keep you looking fresh and classic during this season.
Brave and Bold
If the message you want to send out this spring is “fearless”, bright colored pieces are here to make a statement for you. Get inspired by nature’s colors like a sunny yellow or bright green, or try reminiscent colors of the eighties. Think neon blue or hot pink, both very in at the moment.
This rainbow collection is best when paired with the versatile pieces in your closet like the plain white tee or even with clean prints like the ever classic stripes. It’s all about taking the great combinations and adding some sass to it, like the skinny jean and blazer combo. Swap your regular jeans for one in electric blue and top it with a striped fitted blazer for a vibrant twist on a great classic.
Diving into this statement inducing trend can be a bit daunting if bright colors intimidate you. To prevent looking clownish, mix up pieces that are in the same color family like pink, orange and red. If you want to experiment, just go for a pop of color in your accessories, like a neon yellow belt or an orange clutch to liven up your daily look.
Leopard print and snakeskin has been in style since anyone can remember and it’s still a go to trend for this season.
To take advantage of these fun prints in a new way, printed jeans or leggings are one of the top must have items of the moment. Throw on a plain top or a classic piece like a black blazer for a modern fun look.
Another take on this season’s colorful theme is adding tribal print to your closet. Whether is a killer pair of shoes or Aztec print top, tribal items will add fun and edge to your outfits and encourage this season’s “look at me” attitude which is the best accessory for a rocking style.
