Update Your Ensembles With Hues Essential to Spring
Color can be the be the distillation of complicated moral messages - virginal white, mournful black, sexual red - color can also inspire such as the way hot pink encourages playful passion and turquoise heals emotions and recharges the soul. I'm often drawn to both colors and try to incorporate them in my wardrobe throughout the year , but I find they are the most versatile when worn in the spring. This Guess dress I found at thredUP.com combines the hues without looking too 'My Little Pony', which is never a good look, in my opinion.
A great way to incorporate the shades without looking too 'little girly ' is to keep them grounded with basic, yet elegant,classic neutral colored garments.
Navy blue is the color of quarter to midnight , or just before darkness falls. It connotes seriousness and sophistication and mixes well with colors.

Hot Pink and Turquoise pieces can be made to look more relaxed and a bit more respectable with a white tee or well cut white pants.

Another way to update your wardrobe with these shades is to go monochrome. Choose one of the colors for a long unbroken color line. This creates a polished look and you can still add interest with accessories.

These gorgeous scarves can add flair to any neutral based outfit. I love the richness of the shades and the beauty of the patterns here.
