Le Nouveau Moi – Spring Trends
Trendsetter or cautious observer, the following 3 trends of spring/summer 2015 are for everyone, it’s all how you apply the trend!:
- Cool, calming neutrals
- Large floral prints
- Denim, denim everywhere
1. These cool colors, such as “aquamarine” and “glacier gray”, as reported by Pantone, are a soothing connection to nature, and can be paired with warm, earthy neutrals, or kept in the cooler family as I have done. But don’t forget– it’s ok to be more adventurous and mix brighter pastels into the look, for a fun contrast!
2. It’s amazing that florals have not yet worn out their welcome, but with bolder and larger blooms this time around, they are staying fresh and desirable. I incorporated florals into my look with this Cynthia Rose vest, opting for a more subtle approach to this trend. A more dominant rose print would work just as well, however, and combining contrasting prints is always an option, for a bolder application of the trend.
3. Ah, denim…trusty denim. From the sleek classics, to the deconstructed and bedazzled, there really is something for everyone. Keep it simple with a basic denim layer, as I have done, or go with denim on denim. It’s ok to mix a dark wash with light, or throw in a ripped, patched statement piece with an otherwise classic outfit.
