Fall and winter has long been viewed by fashionistas as a time to “wrap up” not only figuratively, but in the colors and fabrics that we wear. As Spring approaches our thinking changes to relinquishing those things to unveil a new way of enjoying fashion. ….is has always been viewed as a time of renewal, and this Spring brings a beautiful color palette of pastels mixed with richer hues and metallics.
Pantone, the leading authority on color trends for more than 20-years, has surveyed the top fashion designers to give us all a sneak peak of what’s to come for Spring. Their results revealed that pastels ranging from blues, to violets, and every shade of green will be complimented with the colors of “sand“ and grays. Calming, and seemingly a welcome to the coming of spring weather they bring a world of endless possible color combinations. The pastels work extremely well with the neutral shades of khaki and grays, and create a sophisticated palate that works well for virtually anyone.
Not all the colors are pastel though……you’ll be finding punches of vibrant reds, yellows, oranges and violets that will
work very well whether combined with their pastel counterparts, or used in conjunction with the neutral colors. The more vibrant colors can add that “spice” to any one’s wardrobe that takes it from ordinary to extraordinary. Oh–and metallics are still going to play a very important role in Spring wardrobes too!
The cue for Spring should be, embrace the calm, but dare to mix your colors to create unique and dynamic ensembles. Spice up those neutrals with a daring bold color, or perhaps a hint of a pastel.
Just have fun and dare to be you!
Professionally I've had an interesting and varied career path.After college I was a teacher for many years. In my late 40's, I earned a Master's in counseling , and worked as a grief counselor, while also training volunteer grief counselors.From there I went into sales, and then my first business.
My first business was a franchise which taught me so much about the ins and outs of owning and running a business.After a few years I sold that, and about the time my first grandchildren (twin girls) were born, I became the owner of AdorableBabyClothing.com.I like to claim, I'm earning a whole new degree in internet knowledge, marketing and html coding!Ha!Thank goodness there are real people who understand all that and can help me.I invite you to visit my website at http://www.adorablebabyclothing.com when you get a chance!
