This just in: Winter is here for another 5 weeks but that’s ok. Even though we find ourselves in the grips of one of the coldest winters on record doesn’t mean our wardrobe has to be, ermmm, frozen stiff…
With NYFW coming to an end and the European Fashion Week circuit beginning, we should take a cue from the millions of street style photos running amuck around the web.
A few trends being heralded as openers to spring are:
Fresh Mint and Turquotic:
Mint and turquoise are making a big splash this spring and what a better way to infuse a bit of hope of spring into your winter wardrobe?
Black is a year rounder. You can wear it at any time and in any season. But how can you freshen it up? White. Adding white to this chic color is a great way to brighten it up and give it a crisp feel.
Carnival Day of the Dead
This trend is still going strong, three years after Alexander made skulls the focal point in his collection. Yes it isn’t the Day of the Dead but skulls are hot hot hot hot and they are definitely a great way to liven up your wardrobe. Mix them with some floral and ethnic pieces and you are on a roll..
Navy blue and crisp white are timeless and classic. They go well together in any season just like black and white. By adding a pop of yellow, you have made this combo more modern and have definitely given it a spring appeal.
and last but not least….
Toughen up your winter wardrobe with a bit of faux leather, because we love animals–and studs. But don’t use black leather, that just screams WINTER. Instead go lighter, with a neutral color like tan or beige, or if you can, white. Add in some gold accents and teal and you are a success.. well at least at brightening up your winter wardrobe..
I hope this has helped you ladies with some ideas to cheer up your Winter Blues. Until next post..
