Spring 2011 Trend: Bold Colors
I am so delighted about Spring because it's all about delicious bold colors! Gone are the days of boring all black.
I know most people can't rock the all over color like stylist June Ambrose or actress Camilla Belle so you have to take baby steps. Start with your accessories. A pop of color handbag or shoes will up-date any ensemble.
Jennifer Hudson rocked it perfectly, if you are not a fan of head to toe color. She looks fabulous in a black corset tank with a pop of color fuchsia skirt.
The key to not looking like a member of "The Golden Girls" is to make sure the colors go well with each other. Please don't force this trend because you will look beyond contrive and foolish.
Another important point is to keep your make-up as simple and chic as possible. If you desire to rock a bold color lip that's fine as long as your eyes are neutral. Trust me, no one wants to look like Rainbow Bright!
I love this trend because you don't have to spend a fortune. I found several of fabulous bold color pieces at Marshalls, Fox's( Midwest and East Coast) and of course my designer consignment store Selections in Chicago.
