Color Translation…

As many of us fear adding too much color into our closet, we tend to have a collection of neutrals that fit your own color palette of  skin and hair colors.  So in order to help one navigate through a pop of color fashion moment, I have  the run down on the “Neutral Know-How” in order to add this season’s brightest colors to your closet:

Since all colors work well with white, the creamy cousin, Ivory, doesn’t have the same flexibility.  Go with soft pastels that make the effect look crisp.  Examples include forest green, cornflower blue, candy apple red and buttercream yellow.

Freshen up the classic look of Navy blue with the brightest colors of the season. Try orange, bright pink, turquoise and kelly green.  Any basic sailor top in your closet will work great with all of those darling J. Crew shorts in a solid color.  Have fun with it!

Olive green can take an unexpected feminine turn when paired with delicate hues.  Try cantaloupe orange, petal pink, scarlet red or celery green.

As Khaki and army green seem to be a typical fashion duo, let’s mix it up with some  deeper shades.  Pair with pumpkin orange, violet, mustard yellow and lime green.

Gray, my personal favorite, is considered a muted and softer tone of black.  It blends well with pale hues.  Try cobalt blue (go for those great fun jeans), sea foam green, lavender or lemon.

Thanks to many of my supporters who came out for my Spring Fashion Night Out last month!  It was a great success especially with the wonderful jewelry by Louisa Liss!
