Coral, Red, Pink and Orange

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

The other night,  I escaped for a precious, lap-top free, mini-vacation with my husband. We literally were gone for 18 hours...enough time to rejuvenate and not really miss much of real life.  During that time I actually took a moment to browse a real magazine (made out of paper!) and came across a column called The Fashion Police, where 5 fashion experts gave their opinion on this springs hottest looks. Ken Downing, Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus, was one such expert and what he said was so fabulous it inspired me to write this blog:
   "As you move into the spring season, you want to mix hues of coral, red, pink, and orange, and wear them all at the same time.  Try these colors on a dress with sleeves. A sleeved dress is young and effervescent; it looks new to my eye and is a chic alternative for dinner."

Well Mr. Downing you had me at, "a dress with sleeves"! Aside from loving this sunny color combo, that's what I love to hear....a little more coverage and lots more chic!

So grab a bright coral dress, tunic or top to add a pop of color to your spring wardrobe.

Alexa Chung looks divine in her coral SLEEVED sheath.  A double necklace breaks up the solid color of the dress while her black clutch tones down and anchors the look. 
Try this pinky/coral tunic for an easy elegant look.  Stick with a simple style when using color:

To be daring mix all the colors at once. Pair the dress with beautiful fuchsia shoes like these:

And take it to the next level by incorporating a third color with a wow bag like this:

Finish you look with a pop a fresh spring color from OPI's new Touring America collection:
Colors from left to right:

  • Are We There Yet? - a beautiful melon hue

  • Color To Dine For - a cute rosy red hue

  • I Eat Mainly Lobster - a spectacular coral shade

  • My Address Is “Hollywood” - an alluring rose pink shade

  • A bland interior can be brought to life with these fresh colors too. In interior design bright hues should always be balanced with black and/or white furniture, accessories and paint.
