Trend Report: Orange

Credit 1, 2, 3

One of the punchiest and hottest hues for spring is coral’s close cousin, orange. While all of the zesty colors are definitely in for summer (think grapefruit pink, lemon yellow, lime green…) orange has been popping up everywhere.

Unlike coral however, this can be one tricky shade to pull off, and while it tends to look best on chocolate or porcelain skin tones where the color can really pop, with a little help anyone can pull it off.

For warm skin tones, look for yellow based oranges such as the dress on the far left.

For cool skin tones, try a red or blue based orange, such as the dress in the middle.

And as always, accessories are a great option. I still fondly remember an orange clutch that I took everywhere last summer (and later went AWOL at a little cafe in August. Sigh.) hopefully I’ll find a suitable replacement this season.

And just a personal preference, stay away from black. There’s no need to bring on the Halloween references. Instead pair with neutrals (orange and dove grey look stunning together) or go bold with poppy brights.

Enter the Fashion to Figure Contest!

I first met Michael in high school. We both went to different schools, but played in District Orchestra together. Then he left District 2 to finish high school at the SC Governor’s School for the Arts and the Humanities. I would hear little bits and pieces about him over the years via friends, the internet, and Facebook.

Facebook is where I actually found him again, just the other day. I saw pictures from his new collection pop up on my timeline, and knew I had to check them out. His clothes are beyond gorgeous, and I am not just saying that because I know him. They really are amazing. The deconstructed looks truly show how talented this self taught designer really is. Oh and if you’re wondering…the green dress is my favorite!

Spring 2009 Fashion Trends

There are too many spring fashion trends to count. How are you suppose to count all the trends that 100s of designers put each spring? Well you start with what colors stood out. For some reason, the only colors that popped were light grays, pinks, creams, and yellows. Jeans could range anywhere from skinny skinny jeans to wide boyfriend jeans. Spring dresses will be light and airy with lots of ruffles. Also look for oversized accessories from huge purses to huge necklaces. As the spring cool turns into the spring heat, jackets will be de rigueur for anyone who wants to layer a look, especially jackets with a slim fit and cuffed sleeves. Last but not least, structured heels are still a must.
