For some time now, white has been the color you see all around springtime. It’s nice to make that transition of dark colors to white for those hot days. Some of us dread the idea of wearing color but this season is painted with color everywhere. You walk into a store and pops of color are now more relevant than whites. It’s time to be bold and add some color to your life.
From bold colors to earth tones, there is a mixture of spring and fall like never before. Diane von Furstenberg is the perfect example of a brown and blue mixture of using two seasons to combine a great look. While, DVF pulled of the dark/bright, Jil Sander mixed a honeysuckle pink top with a bold purple bottom, giving it that spring feel that everyone loves. There is no doubt that colors are in, in every single way whether it be dresses, shorts, shirts, jewelry or shoes. Color is a much needed staple in everyone's wardrobe.
This week’s Fashionista was spotted wearing a New York and Company purple summer dress with floral detail on the top. She then paired this with a purple jewel necklace, also from New York and Co. To finish this look, the Fashionista paired her purple summer dress with a pair of white Volcom sandals and a pair of vintage tortoise shell sunglasses. The purple and white give it that complete spring finish along with the floral detail.
Hint: To get this look, you can wear an Ella Moss enchantment dress in sorbet or you can go for the Rachel Pally long Fortuna dress in lilac. With so many color options in lights and bolds, just about every designer has created long summer dresses to appeal to everyone. Pair the dress with a beaded twist necklace from Adia Kibur and a pair of Steven by Steve Madden toe ring flat sandals.
