ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Fruity Frock

One thing is always constant in the fashion world: color. It’s an element of design that can be translated in a variety of different ways. Whether it’s monochromatic, color-blocked or combined into a pattern, designers are always looking for new ways to reinvent color. Often, certain hues become staples for the season. Last spring it was all about the pastels: pale shades of pink, blue and yellow graced the pages of all major fashion magazines. This spring it’s all about the cool tones and nature neutrals. Every season it’s different and unique. It’s always fun to play with colors in your wardrobe and see what works best for you. Who knows, maybe one day your shade will be the shade of the season.

This Fashionista is killin’ it in cranberry. It’s a bold color that stands out in a crowd. This warm tone works well for all seasons and pairs perfectly with her blonde hair and fair skin. The dress itself is simple, chic and great for many occasions. Paired with wedges, she airs on the side of formality. She may be ready for her sorority chapter meeting or a nice dinner date. This dress would also look amazing dressed down with a pair of Converse. With the sporty shoes, she’d be ready for a Saturday full of fun. Even booties would look great with this ensemble. Just simply changing her shoes is all she needs to do to take this cranberry number from day to night, from class to dinner or even from work to a party. The silhouette is extremely versatile. Cranberry is definitely a color that is here to stay and I wouldn’t be surprised if I see even more of it come fall and winter. Fingers crossed for more fruity frocks… am I right?

How To: Ready to rock a fruity frock, too? It’s simple, just find a dress that’s simple in style but vibrant in color. Every Fashionista can pick her own shade to match her unique style.
