Style Advice of the Week

Spring is upon us and that means that it is time to put those chunky sweaters and riding boots away. Now it is time to to sport your most colorful tank tops and cute sandals to show off your fresh pedicure. After wearing dark colors for the last three months, it is important to not turn that into a pattern because colorful clothes are crucial for the spring. Whether you are going out and getting dolled up for the night, or throwing on a casual outfit for a day of errands, implementing color is a must.

The Fashionista that I snapped a photo of for today’s post is showing some color for the spring time. She is coordinating a fun and peaceful that is perfect for a sunny day — blue. Blue is such a great color to use for the spring time because it goes with almost all skin tones and gives you a peaceful vibe. When coordinating your outfit with one color, it is important to remember that you do not have to match the top and bottom with the exact shade of color. They can be similar but not identical because then your outfit will be missing dimension.

For example, this Fashionista is using a top that has various shades of blue and she chose one of those shades to match her sandals with. The color of the sandals is complementing the different shades on her patterned top. Another thing that can add some spunk to your ensemble are similar colored accessories. Accessories always make an outfit fun and different. Using a color shade for an outfit is fun to experiment with and it is a great reason to use certain pieces in your closet that you have not used in a while.
