It is TIME to bid adieu to winter and usher in spring! Please? Sometime soon? Seriously though, we are ALL ready to experience the joys of spring already – sunshine, warmer weather, colorful landscapes, and SPRING CLOTHES! As I sit here writing this blog, it is absolutely pouring outside – AGAIN. And I cannot stop thinking about how ready I am to bring on the the short sleeves, sandals, and above all else, color. Speaking of color, let’s look at one of the big trends of the season…. Keep reading for our most recent spring trend update: solar colors!
Spring Trend Update: Solar Colors
What are solar colors? Solar colors are those sunny shades in the yellow and orange color families, like marigold, bronze, amber, and gold. So many of us love these colors, but sometimes shy away from wearing them because, well, we don’t know how!
Guys, a word on yellow. We do hear from clients very often that they are nervous to wear yellow, or that yellow simply doesn’t work on their skin tone. But no matter your coloring or skin tone, there is a yellow that works for you! A couple of tips as it relates to skin tone to consider when choosing a yellow piece… For light to fair skin tones, bolder and more saturated yellows like mustards and dark yellows are most complementary. If you love pastel yellow, that’s so fine, just try the piece on to make sure it doesn’t wash you out. If you are more medium to olive toned, go for the bright and vibrant yellows… And for tan to dark skin tones, you are the lucky ducks – most shades of color will look fabulous on you, including neon yellows.
A Few Of Our Favorite On Trend Pieces
Obviously, there are endless options when it comes to pieces that reflect the spring trend of solar colors – because there are endless shades of yellow and orange. We have selected some of our favorite pieces across a good range of hues to share with you guys today!
An affordable blazer like this one is a great way to reflect a seasonal trend in your wardrobe without being too “trendy” or breaking the bank!
This wrap blouse is so sweet and perfect for this time of year, right into summer! We love how its pattern features several different hues of the season’s colorway… Pair with denim or white denim, or if you are feeling a little more adventurous, a bottom in one of the yellow or orange shades for an interesting “monochromatic” look!
A dress with a whimsical pattern… We think this bright yellow lemon pattern is SO FUN. The playful pattern combined with the feminine and classic lines make this dress perfect for the warmer weather than is surely heading our way. As a sidenote, we are seeing a lot of this playful pattern this spring and going into summer!
If you don’t love the idea of yellow or orange up top, you can incorporate this trend via a fun bottom. We love this tiered lace midi skirt. The colorway on this piece is so pleasing – pair it with a white top of your choosing, and let the skirt do all the talking! And that slit – love that touch!
And now for a little neon fun – imagine how fabulous this dress would be set against a pretty beach tan!?!
A Few Showstopper Dresses
Love the tones in this swoon-worthy maxi dress. And that back…. Without a doubt, this is a showstoppper piece for the season.
This piece is a total splurge, but oh my word, if you have a special occasion coming up….. It is spectacular.
