Is it true that opposites attract? They do this spring.
As a young girl, my favourite colours were pink and purple. I was always putting them together, despite the slight colour clash, because it was too difficult to choose just one when both were so…me! Light pink was my quiet, introverted self, who was oft found reading in a sunlit corner somewhere. Purple was my creative and independent self, who went away with my best friend each summer for a month, and wrote short stories and plays.
This spring, like the fall, pretty well anything goes. This is the season to be daring with your style choices. Try mating – erm…pairing – colours, for instance. White and black is classic, and very popular this season. Why not branch out though, and try pairing pink and tangerine – or emerald with royal blue?
Ricki’s is a great place to find options for this trend. Wandering the store, I came across this blue/green pairing and was too happy to include it in this blog post.
I am a fairly indecisive person and tend to change “either or’s” to “both…,and’s,” contrasting colours in my spring/summer wardrobe gives me the opportunity for “both…and,” leaving me more content than ever. Showcase different aspects of your own personality with your deliberate style choices this spring, tell people they cannot put you in a box by wearing contrast colours.
You can be subtle about it, if contrast scares you – try working with accessories that contrast your clothes. Cleo has some great patterned scarves that could act as the dark to your light blazer or visa versa.
Or, better yet, Ricki’s has a great selection of striped tops – which incorporate the contrast trend in a subtler manner than bold blocks of colour. Tell your story with great styles from Kingsway Mall.
