Now let’s talk foot wear. Pointy toes are a great way to elongate your legs. Seen in brightly colored pumps, they look great with an all-white outfit. Chunky heels have also returned. They look great in sandals with wide straps. Wide strap sandals are also cool with a wedged heel. Can you believe high top tennie’s are being wedged also? Laser cut leather is a fun technique that is being applied to shoes and purses alike. It gives them a type of lacey look, and looks great in bright tropical colors like pineapple. Clear see-thru inlays also go great with the tropical colored theme. Tropical sounds great today!
Moving on to your wardrobe. Purses are not the only thing that I have seen in a boxy style. Dresses, tops, and blazers all have that structured squared off look. And guess what? They are also showing off your midriff! Ugh, the people that create these trends obviously don’t live in the mid-west where we hibernate (and eat) in the winter and dine on beer and brats the rest of year. Okay moving on…. Color blocking is big this season with contrasting stripes and geometric or chevron patterns. Shirt collars are crew neck and there are a lot of sheer inlays or large ruffles. Pinafore dresses are soft and beautiful especially in this season’s hot tones of white, sea-foam, apricot, and camel. Neon is still “in” when accompanied with white. By the way, am I seeing a lot of camo???
Well it is spring today! Does your closet need some spring cleaning? Time to make room for something new, right?!
