We all want to look put-together, feel good about what we’re wearing, and be comfortable without spending a fortune and time you just can’t spare running from store to store to store. If this sounds like your life, then keep reading. You need key information that you can apply right now.
We’ll do the hard work for you and tell you what you need to know so you’re looking fresh and fabulous this Spring/Summer, saving you money and precious time too!
This season, you can expect to see certain colors and color combinations popping up over and over. Put any of these together with pieces you already have or augment your wardrobe with a few new items and you’ll be all set. You probably have some key items in your closet right now that can be used as a base.
The first great color combination is navy blue with orange (named color of the year!), hot pink, turquoise, or kelly green. Olive green is far from drab when it’s mixed with cantaloupe, petal pink, scarlet, or pale celery green. An otherwise muted gray gets a Spring lift when paired with either cobalt blue, seafoam green, lavender, or lemon yellow.
Keep these casual with capris and shorts, tees & tank tops, or interpret these into your 9 to 5 wardrobe with suits and blouses. Don’t be afraid to use more than one pop of color with these neutral base colors either. One other bonus — these fresh color combinations will see you seamlessly through Summer as well.
