Color has made a real comeback in clothing the last few years, colored jeans, colored shoes, etc. It's no longer a pair of blue jeans with a variety of t-shirts. I've been lucky to find a few pairs of colored jeans/pants that fit great and work with a lot of pieces I already own. Let us not forget the sacred pair of green jeans I bought for a PENNY - literally.
This past week, I met some great friends for lunch and did a little shopping at the mall. So for my day out outfit, I went with a mix of color AND print - so bold, right? I am still struggling in the spring shoe department, and really need to find a few pairs. Here's how I styled my Pantone color-of-the-year, Radiant Orchid pants:
Pants - Ann Taylor Loft
T-Shirt - Ann Taylor
Cardigan - Lands End (they have really kicked up their style)
Shoes - Clarks
Bag - Kate Spade
Jewelry - Ann Taylor necklace, Alex & Ani and Tiffany bracelets
Color can be hard to wear. If you're just getting started, add one piece at a time to your wardrobe. If you're feeling color-shy, pair your color with a neutral like black or white. Keep shoes simple and make sure your color piece is comfortable so you feel good wearing it. The best accessory a girl can wear is her confidence - right?
What's your favorite way to wear color?
