After a long winter, the ice begins to melt. The air is headily laden with lavender, lilac, flowers that can only be described through hues, through the language of colors, with honey sweet saccharine words. Spring is a time of vividness, of blaring colors. Violets and magentas, periwinkles and canary yellows. I’ll be wiggling my way into the familiarity of spring, remembering the florals of springs, the showers, the excuses I’ll pile for wearing willowy skirts and spending a little extra time in the morning with my makeup. I’ll blink away the cold memories, shed the sweaters and coats, the abundant layers, and squint in the warm spring sun. I hope everyone remembers to enjoy their spring, crunching over frosty dewy grass, the shift away from the chill. Remember to enjoy your spring semester, as well, we’re almost to summer!
So, once again we find ourselves in a new year and a new trend is already in the air. Recently, the buzz has been all about the “Pre-Fall 2013″ fashion trends. Personally, I would think we would just wait till spring was over first, but you know how antsy those fashion designers get. Well….drumroll…. what’s in this upcoming fall? Apparently ‘Black on Black’ or as we here at Dolce de Skye call it ” The Blackout”. Whether it’s in trend or not I always love a good little black on black action. Not only is it extremely simple and classy, just add a pop of color (i.e. nail polish, colored bag, bold ring, statement necklace, etc) and you’ve, almost instantly, become that gal the girls talk about as you pass through the office. Another great thing about this reoccurring trend is that is suits all ages (except children, only colorful things for them). Personally, I think- although black will be in this upcoming fall- I feel it will be an array of dark tones (olives, dark gold, emerald, rich reds, etc) with patterns, designs, and floral. It’s the new year, the new you, so try something different! Match something you wouldn’t think would go, mix patterns and prints, be bold! But, remember, its not really what you where, it’s HOW you where it. There is only ONE YOU, and confidence is always in trend.
