This is the time of year that we in the fashion industry start to talk about “transition pieces”- pieces that you can wear now and into Spring.
The idea is all about embracing the upcoming spring trends while staying warm and cozy during the winter months! Layer them up NOW for winter vibes with a coat, hat, scarf, tights and boots then wear the look again in another iteration when things warm up by ditching the layers and creating a new airy combination with open toe heels or sandals, a clutch and a statement necklace come spring. Winter trend + Spring trend= Transition. Wear it now, wear it later!
The easiest way to embrace Spring trends now is with color and luckily this Spring designers seem to have moved away from the typical pastels and toward earthy hues that work well in any season.
Spring 2019 will be dominated by warm, spicy and fiery shades. Lively hues that are a mix of bright reds and oranges. According to Pantone “The mindset for Spring/Summer 2019 reflects our desire to face the future with empowering colors that provide confidence and spirit; colors that are uplifting; joyful hues that lend themselves to playful expressionism and take us down a path of creative and unexpected combinations”.
Challenge accepted Pantone! I love a good spicy palette, that combined with artisanal flourishes like ruffled hems and billowing sleeves lend an artful aura to a look plus make layering oh so easy!
And, if you include a few more spring trends such as craft elements like patchwork, fringing, fabric bundles and woven textures to infuse your clothing with personality you’ll be two steps ahead in the trend game!
Three of my favorites from Pantone’s Spring Color Report are Jester Red, Fiesta and Terrarium Moss. They are fiery, dynamic, look great on every skin tone, and give off a retro vibe plus they pair flawlessly.
Whether you are creating a look using texture for depth or mixing prints you can’t go wrong with these three epice shades as your muse to add a little spice to your wardrobe.
