I don’t know about you, but I didn’t mind losing an hour of sleep if it was going to help push winter out of the way and let spring come on in! We’ve had enough fun with our cable knit sweaters and boots of every color and height… time to put them away and make SPRING FORWARD! What isn’t there to love about spring? It’s longer days, more fun in the sun; we all come out of hibernation! We want to shed those comfort food pounds we gained from being inside so much, and start showing off our bodies… right?! No more layers upon layers of clothing; we want to feel lighter and brighter as the days grow warmer. Feel fresh and look our best! Well here are some guidelines to consider when unpacking and purchasing your warm weather wears.
It’s the cooler and softer side of spring’s color spectrum that has all the designers this season abuzz. I personally can’t help constantly smiling at all the pretty sheer colors, especially the blue hues for the season. I hope this also makes you want to rush to update your spring wardrobe right away! Spend the last of these cozy winter nights inside clicking away for Spring’s hottest trends so you’re ready when the weather breaks.
Spring 2015 Color Trends
Aquamarine A cool calming blue with a watery feel; it’s a light and airy shade.
Scuba Blue It’s so reminiscent of a tropical ocean; a blue hue that looks and makes you feel invigorating.
Lucite Green A soft mint green that gives a soothing glow.
Classic Blue A classic color we are all too familiar with. Pairs well with all the other spring trend colors.
Toasted Almond A warm sun-kissed hue.
Strawberry Ice A soft pink-like shade that evokes a feeling of being “pretty in the pink” without being too overbearing.
Tangerine An energizing yet subtle shade of orange. Energizing and great as a pattern.
Custard A soft banana hued color that reminds me of crème brulee; creamy and decadent.
Marsala A warm burgundy wine color with a brown undertone.
Glacier Gray A soft gray; a perfect neutral that, much like the classic blue, is a great color to pair with the other spring trend colors.
Now, I couldn’t leave you this month without a few points to guide you on WHAT to get that’s hot…
Polka Dots are back and it’s not just for kids! They evoke a daintily sweet and feminine appearance. They come in various sizes, from large to small… choose one.
Chunky ColorBlocks are popular this spring. The hot mix of neutrals, anchored by bold colors in wider bolder stripes, is a great style option for all ages.
Robe Mode for spring, with the kimono’s simple and sleek silhouette, is getting all the buzz this spring. It’s uber comfy and perfectly pairs with denim. If the whole kimono style top is too much for you, take elements of it and try wearing the wide sash like a belt for a dress or top.
Jumpers are still all the rave! This season the hot jumper is OVERALLS. This farmers’ staple is comfort & fashion with a slimming silhouette to be sexy and stylish. Jumpers will be around year after year; in a variation of styles for the picking.
Neutrals and Exotic Skins. Luxuriate in the rich textures now shown in the calming spring trend colors.
Gold Barrettes are simple ways to elevate your half up/half down do’s this spring (shown at Celine shows recently).
Next month, I will give you a more comprehensive breakdown of spring to-do’s in shoes/accessories and more! Until then, stay warm and get your closets ready for the great season ahead!
