Spring 2012 Color Predictions!

So, we have seen some of the nail polish collections, we have seen the runway collections and I think I have narrowed it down to the three "it" colors for Spring! Of course there are shade variations of each - from peach to tangerine, and lilac to periwinkle, but all in all these are the colors to be wearing!

Shades such as Pistachio, Mint, Kiwi and Peridot

Shades such as Lavender, Lilac, and Periwinkle(more blue toned)

Shades such as Tangerine, Apricot, Cantaloupe, Peach and Coral

I absolutely love Spring colors and collections and I am SO glad that many of the colors this year are brighter and less greyed out than last year! I am tired of the muted tones. I still love to wear grey and taupe(fave!), but I am looking forward to pairing them with the above colors for a fresh new Spring look! 

Get the look: The easiest and most affordable way to bring some of these colors into your wardrobe is to pick up a statement piece of jewelry or nail polish. You can find many options of nail color at the drugstores these days and they can range from $0.99 to $8.00+. Tangerine lip color is huge this Spring and also is very easy to find. Lavender lip color has become more and more popular and I am really loving the look! It is more difficult to find in stores, but perhaps some of the Spring collections will feature a lovely shade of purple for those of us willing to brave the lilac lip trend! And of course you could incorporate these colors into your eye and cheek makeup palette. Shades of peach and apricot are universally flattering and they come in a very wide range of colors!

Another option is to spend a bit more money on a statement pair of shoes or sunglasses in one of these colors. I personally think some lime colored flats would be a perfect way to Spring-ify your wardrobe, or maybe a tangerine colored jacket or lavender sunglasses! Scarves are a more affordable way of making a huge statment! Be sure to pick one that brightens your skin tone, since scarves are so close to one's face they can really add that extra something to a complexion and an outfit!

The options are endless and Sammi and I will show you how we are bringing Spring into our wardrobe as the season approaches!

Hope you all are having a fantastic day!!
