ALL IN THE DETAILS: Spring Colors in Winter Weather

The end of March usually marks the beginning of warm temperatures and sunny skies.  However, Nebraska’s weather is infamous for being unpredictable. One day it will be 70 degrees outside, and the next it’s snowing. This proves extremely frustrating when fellow Fashionistas/os want to start experimenting with fresh spring trends. Off-the-shoulder tops, flowy dresses, and sandals can all be very challenging to wear when temperatures still haven’t reached above 40 degrees.

The easiest way to incorporate spring trends into your wardrobe while still keeping warm is to wear the bright colors forecasted for the season. Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for spring 2017 is made up of 10 colors: primrose yellow, pale dogwood, hazelnut, island paradise, greenery, flame, pink yarrow, Niagara, kale, and lapis blue. With such a wide mix of colors, ranging from bright yellow to deep blue to hot pink, there is surely a trendy spring color that appeals to every Fashionista/o.

This Fashionista was spotted on campus looking spring-ready by dressing in one of Pantone’s predicted hot colors for the season. She was wearing a kale colored, mock-neck sweater, black ripped jeans, and a beige suede jacket with a fur lining. To complete her outfit, she added a pair of black Harley Davidson motorcycle boots and a printed canvas book bag. Her look was extremely chic and fashion forward while still remaining weather appropriate.

Color fanatics can incorporate these beautiful Pantone colors into their own outfits by color blocking and wearing striped or floral fabrics—all very popular trends for this upcoming spring season. If you are a bit more hesitant about wearing these brighter shades, try adding a few colorful accessories into your wardrobe. Warmer weather will be arriving shortly. Until then, adding a bit of color into your outfits is the easiest way to brighten your day and try out some fresh, spring trends.
