Spring trends are all about neutral tones – white, black, brown, navy, beige, cream, silver, gold, bronze and denim. If you have previously been one to wear lots of colour like I have, and have suddenly found yourself at a bit of a loss as to what to do – don’t despair! Red, green, yellow and lilac will start to appear in stores soon if it hasn’t already. In the mean time:
- Liven up your neutrals by mixing them up (not just sticking to one) and adding the newness of the season with metallic accessories eg. bag, belt , shoes
- Throw in last seasons beautiful grass green or turquoise bag while keeping those shoes metallic – you’ll still look updated. Remember that those days of matching your shoes, bag and belt are gone
- Add a colourful necklace to kick your neutral outfit up a notch. Consider gigantic plastic beads either around your neck or on your wrist – they are the accessory of the moment
- Throw in a stronger shade of lipstick like red, cherry or dark mauve – it will make you feel less monochromatic, but still trendy
If you have always been one to embrace a neutral palette, this is your season – enjoy it!
