I love that this season offers two radically different color palates – soft and feminine as well as bold and bright. We just received this new group from Multiples in lime and royal, and I could hardly wait to get it in the window. I’m not sure any color screams summer quite like lime.
I always feel a bit sad when a customer tells me they shy away from wearing color. I don’t know about you, but in Wyoming when I am surrounded by brown, white and grey from November to March, I am ready for some color come April and May. It literally brightens my mood to wear something cheerful, and, for me, cheerful means color.
If you are one of those people who feel intimidated by wearing bold colors, dial it down. Wear one bright item and pair it with foundation pieces in a good neutral like grey, black or white. Put your colorful item on the part of your body you like the best and wear the solid neutrals elsewhere. My bet is you will have a million compliments from your co-workers who are used to you just blending in.
If you are comfortable wearing bold, then this is your season! Get out there and get some color! You have just 4 short months before the cool winds of September will force those summer colors to the back of the closet. Make your wardrobe reflect your sunny disposition and how happy you are that warm days are just around the corner!
