PATTERN MIXING is an advanced level of styling, but these shades make it easy. Soft or lighter shades are great to work with in creating this look. Choose a simple pattern like a stripe or dot, and pair it with a floral that contains the same shade as the stripe or dot. Keep the accessories clean and simple so that the patterns are the focus of the look.
PICK 3! Choose 3 harmonious shades and color block with them. Of the 3 colors, choose only one for your accessories, this will bring cohesiveness to the look. Here I have used city sneakers and a straw bag to bring in current trends.
A NEUTRAL COLUMN with a Kimono is a trending look that gives the sophistication of layers while allowing you to keep cool in the daytime, with cover for cool nights. Use a body close fit in a neutral for the long lean column and bring in color with a patterned kimono in a sheer fabric. Choose shoes in the same neutral to keep the column going, and add jewelry in a color from the print to bring it all together.
NEUTRALS WITH A POP OF COLOR are a simple Spring look. Put shades of white, beige, and/or tan together, then add accents of brighter or deeper colors with jewelry and accessories. The look is pulled together by choosing one color for both shoes and jewelry and adding a multi-colored bag.
