“COLOR, COLOR, COLOR, COLOR, POPPIN’ EVERYWHERE!”—And yes, I did just make a Bubba Sparx, “Ms. New Booty”, reference in 2012. But enough about irrelevant strip club anthems, let’s get back to the real topic at hand…COLOR!
BOLD prints paired with VIBRANT solids gives us a bright & brave introduction to Summer 2012. With regards to my personal style, in past seasons I’ve maintained a conservative taste when it comes to experimenting with color, but this year’s motto is: Go BOLD or go HOME! Don’t be afraid to step out of your color comfort zone!
STYLING TIP: For those of you who are of the darker shade of chocolate, like myself, finding the perfect pop of color can be difficult. Color is our best friend! We should avoid wearing blacks, browns, and other deep earth tones which may drown us out. I would also advise you to stay away from harsh neon colors, as they tend to have a sharp contrast against our skin which make us appear to be darker. My advice would be to stick with softer brights, deep pastels, and vibrant sorbet inspired tones which enhance & compliment our skin tone.
And remember, there is an entire spectrum of colors waiting for you!
Taste the rainbow!
