My favorite part of spring is the return of bright, bold colors. It’s about time we shed the layers of black and grey, and inject some vibrant hues into our lives.
A few weeks ago, I visited one of my favorite stores, Zara (located on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica), and found the perfect inspiration.
My favorite combination entailed the pairing of soft nudes with fire-engine reds. It’s the perfect contrast between delicate and fierce. By incorporating pieces of winter neutrals, it’s also an easy way to transition into bold colors without looking like you dressed yourself with a box of Crayolas.
I also love me some cobalt blue. There’s something captivating about this shade, that instantly electrifies an outfit without any of that unwanted shock. Paired with caramelized brown pieces, the combination makes for a great look for day or night.
And the easiest way to add a little color to your outfit: throw on a light-weight scarf in rich, primary color or a fun, spotted pattern.
