Spring Trend: Bright and Bold Color

As you start shopping for spring and summer clothing you will want to be looking for the latest spring trend this season bright and bold colors.  You will see these bold colors in a variety of solids, stripes and patterns in lots of different pieces of clothing.

This spring and summer you will see lots of great patterns ranging from python prints or floral patterns all the way to more subtle infusions of tie dye.  You’ll most definitely want to look for great tops and dresses with the patterns that suit your own individual style.  Patterns utilizing bold colors will range from distinctive animal prints like python to bold floral patterns, lots of elements of tie dye patterns and of course stripes in a host of great fabrics and distinctive style tops.

Bright colors will be popular in both patterns and solids colors. Be on the lookout for a variety of bold shades of coral colors, blues and purples.  This spring you will continue to see lots of clothing utilizing shimmer and shine with the use of fabrics instead of more matte fabrics and colors.  Satins, sequins and sheer are another great way to incorporate bold colors.   Wearing bold colors is all about your own personal style.  A few rules of thumb to help make sure you don’t overdo it with bold, bright colors.

We love incorporating bold colors as accents or contrast especially with shiny or shimmery materials like satins or sequins.  This is a great way to add subtle touches of color that still stand out.  This way if the color doesn’t survive many more seasons, you can still pull off the pop of color because it is an accent rather than the primary color.  Another great way to add hints of a color is with patterns.  You can find lots of great tops by designer Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati, as an example, that include lots of patterns with base colors like black accented by hints of fuscia or other bright colors.  This pattern allows you to wear bolder colors because they are offset with the basic black or basic core color.

Spring is also a perfect time to incorporate bright spring colors like yellows, greens, and pinks.  These spring colors are perfect bright colors for spring and summer and we love mixing these colors with other core colors to mix it up.  One of my favorite spring dresses is the Blaire Widesleeve Crew Dress.   This great dress by designer Ella Moss features a yellow lemonade color contrasted with grey stripes at the hem or at the waistline. This dress is a perfect example of a great bright color that doesn’t go over the top.

The bottom line is that you have to decide how bright and bold you are willing to go with incorporating color trends into your closet.  Adding a few key pieces in the latest trend color such as a coral this season is a great way to spruce up your wardrobe.

Laurie B. Rumba Puff Sleeve Sweater

Knit designer and visionary Laurie B. is known for her high quality high fashion knitwear and this Laurie B. Rumba puff sleeve sweater wrap is probably my favorite design of hers.  This sweater snaps in the front for a completely separate look or it unsnaps to become the adorable wrap that is perfect for fall and early winter.  This sweater is also full of surprising details like the adorable pockets and puff sleeves.  This is also a super soft lightweight knit that can give you warmth but won’t overheat you. It really is perfect for any season.  A knit wrap like this can easily sell for around $200, but this week only at Vintage Fringe this puff sleeve cardigan is only $99.
