Trend: Color Alert

by Tiffanie

This spring, pink and orange are the colors to wear. Preferably together.

From fuschia, to melon, to coral, to poppy, to papaya — pinks and oranges are “in” in a big way. And what more playful and fun colors to bring in the new season?

One of the best things about these warmer-hued colors is that they pair perfectly with another current trend — neutrals. Nudes and blushes rejoice! You now have bright, powerful shades to contrast your subdued simplicity.

In order to pack a punch to your popping shades, try to stay away from ultra-feminine styles — ruffles, A-line skirts and bows need not apply here. Instead, go for bold silhouettes with strong lines to emphasize the color without being overwhelming.
