Ladies, it’s finally here. Spring is upon us and the fashion we love is too. A ’60s-inspired look is setting the trend along with color, color, color this spring and summer of 2007.
It’s all about the colors. Yellows, oranges, blues, greens and off whites are definite “must have” colors in your closet, this season.
Light pastels are great for the spring; they’re soft and add a nice touch of color to your ensemble; however, come summer, the deep darker versions of the colors mentioned will definitely be hot!
Colors are great, but they look even better when they compliment particular skin tones. For light to fair skin tones, try wearing red and different variations of blue and pink; this will work with your pink undertones and not make you look so light.
Fair to medium skin tones can wear variations of pink, aqua, and coral to bring out your skin’s natural undertones. Medium to deep skin tones can focus on dark blues, deep yellows, and whites are perfect. These colors lie perfectly along a darker skin tone and really do compliment it.
Along with the color variation this season, there are the ’60s-inspired styles. Baby-doll dresses, chunky jewelry, and kimono-sleeved tops can make you look great. Paris Hilton ushered in the baby-doll dress trend, and it caught on. Wearing these baby-doll dresses as tops paired with jeans has also become very popular.
Less fitted tops have also come back for 2007 spring and summer. Instead of wearing everything fitted, try wearing a top that is fitted in the bust area, and loosens up as it flares out to the bottom. This style of top can flatter any body type and usually looks best with long-beaded jewelry.
Chunky colorful jewelry is also a “must have” this season.
Earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces are a great way to compliment an outfit. Wear jewelry that is not a primary color in what you have on. Instead, try to bring out the less obvious colors in your outfit with pieces of jewelry.
So there you have it.
