After what seem like never-ending months of cold weather, sporting a subdued color palette, layers of bulky knits and snow boots, the spring season has finally arrived here in Bloomington and the Fashionista/os are wasting no time pulling out their warm weather fashion trends. The usual floral prints and gladiator sandals have been spotted, but a new trend that caught my eye is combining a bold print with a bright color. We all know that bright hues scream spring season and the trend of pattern is nothing new to the fashion scene, but by placing them together creates a new, fresh idea for the warm months to come.
I spotted this Fashionista and couldn’t believe how stylish she looked by pairing the unexpected combination of lime green in her top with leopard in her ballet flat. To keep her ensemble from looking too busy, she broke up her printed shoes and bright blouse with black leggings and cardigan, tying it all together with a skinny, studded belt. To make your look just as fashion forward as today’s Fashionista, opt for a bright in a top and pair with any patterned accessory, like a floral headband or leopard pump finishing it off with neutral basics.
Hint: If you are wondering where to purchase a great find like this Fashionista’s embellished, leopard flats, try a boutique that is geared towards accessories. Henri Bendel is one of my favorite shopping destinations that caters to unique accessories, you will be sure to find something that fits the bold pattern trend and of course your own personal taste.
