Color Me Happy

This Spring will be about color. Not just any color, but all colors. And lots of them worn together. I’m talking about one of this season’s biggest trends, “Color Blocking.” I’ve been so anxious to try out this trend myself! To be honest, this trend requires a little bravery, especially since I’m more of a neutral gal… but you can do it!  Here are some of my tips:
-If you’re a color-blocking beginner, it’s best to stick with two colors that are extremely contrasting.
-Be sure to stick with solid colors without prints, ruffles, pockets, or frills to keep the look simple.
-Keep the shoes and all other accessories neutral.
-Either the top or the bottom clothing article should be fitted. This will provide structure to the outfit which is perfect for a polished look.
-For a more office appropriate look, stick with colors within the same palette to keep the look more harmonious.

This trend is set to stay around through 2013… will you be giving it a go?

xoxo, Christina

    Never would have thought to pair green and purple… such an unusual color combo but it works! Cute! And I love the headband!
