This spring has SO many fun trends to play with, and I for one, could not be more excited. After the fall/winter season, I'm always ready to embrace more colour. Just seeing vibrant hues in stores and in my closet always lifts my mood and has me feeling more playful.
One of the dominant trends for spring 2018 is brights. Saturated, bright colours and pastels are all the rage for this season. Of which, lavender, blue, yellow and pink are spear-heading the pack. You can learn more about the top 10 spring trends here.
When it comes to colour, one thing I emphasize to clients is that colour stretches our comfort level. Some people feel most comfortable in neutrals with the odd splash of colour here and there, while others, like myself, love as much colour as they can get. So as with any trend, incorporate this trend as much or as little as you feel comfortable doing so.
This trend, however, is all about embracing as much colour from head-to-toe as you can stand. I for one, am loving it.
When rocking a lot of colour, I, personally, love creating an outfit by using a colourful print and pulling different shades from it into the rest of my look. This spring outfit for example, was inspired by the pumps that I'm wearing. While the dominant colour is a loud lime green, the rest of the footwear has blues, pinks, greens, and tangerine shades in it. So, I decided to pair two pastel blues together (that were found in the shoes) and grab an equally colourful bag and pink necklace. The pumps in this case are what help tie the look all together.
Now, if you're not someone that wants to be this vibrant, don't worry. You don't have to go there. If you're colour comfort level is a little lower than mine, I recommend to start small. Experiment with something small like a bright nail polish, a fun lip colour, or perhaps an accessory in a vibrant shade. Doing this will acclimatize your eye to seeing more colour on your body, and overtime, you may feel more comfortable wearing something else in a pop of colour. Remember, there are no rules when it comes to creating a personal style you are happy with.
I, for one need to push myself to wear colour more often as I always feel so much more myself when I do.
Will you give this trend a try?
