STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Color Me Neutral

“Light as a feather” is the idiom Fashionistas are embracing as they get dressed each morning. With the weather becoming increasingly warmer, pieces that are light, comfortable and chic are becoming more important. This week’s Fashionista paired a colored pair of chino shorts with a lace top and Sperry Top-Siders.

A trend sweeping the globe, chinos are becoming increasingly popular among males and females. Appearing in both shorts and pants, chinos can be dressed-up or dressed-down. These fitted pants are designed to leave just enough room to stay comfy while going about your daily activities. This Fashionista chose to ditch the khaki and denim and incorporate fashion-forward colors into her ensemble. This salmon color is a great contrast to the honeysuckle and tangerine we’ve been seeing lately. It is a light color choice to pair with neutrals and easy to color block. I love how this Fashionista color blocks with her bright pink Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. These colors complement her skin and hair tone, leaving her radiant.

This Fashionista created an overall look that is great for warm weather. Eyelet, crochet and lace are light fabrics that neutrally balance with pastel and bright color schemes. From winter white to summer white, her lace top is fresh and a fabulous contrast to her suggested prep look. With Coachella nearing these lighter fabrics, like this one from Free People, are making quite the appearance, creating a distinguished bohemian look, as many would call it. Not only a look for outdoor concerts and events, this Fashionista exhibits the multiple possibilities for styling these distinct tops.

No longer an east coast prep essential, college students everywhere are rocking this boat shoe. Sperry’s are known for their comfort, lightness and freeing feel. Originally made in a dark and light khaki, they are now sold in all different colors and patterns allowing Fashionistas/os to mix-and-match. This Fashionista chose a floral pattern to enhance her color scheme and overall look. A variety of adjectives can be used to describe this Fashionista’s distinct style, but one thing is for sure she incorporates color perfectly and keeps it fresh.
