Cool Spring Trend: An Array of Whites
As you shop for spring apparel this year, make sure you buy plenty of white. And while you’re at it, pair that white with an extra side of white.
You read that correctly. White is the hottest (or should I say coolest?) color of the season and it’s taken stage front and center. Eggshell, cream, bone, stone and optical whites as tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes and accessories are all spring 2013 do’s.
Gone is the traditional school of thought that says white is a color exclusively appropriate for high summer through Labor Day. In fact, fashion gurus and stylists urge you throw on your prettiest white garments and accessories as early as yesterday, so don’t concern yourself with all those outdated style mores.
Below are a few ways to style white for the spring 2013 season.
The whole white on white layered white look is probably the easiest and trendiest way to style your whites this season. You can also layer the same shade of white to achieve a sort of airy effervescence.
White and Nude
This spring, get creative with beiges and nudes mixed with your prettiest whites. Gold or bronze jewelry looks particularly striking with this color duo and the same is true for golden and bronzy makeup. When mixed together, these colors take on a sort of modern earthy goddess vibe.
White and Bold Color
Neons are also a trendy do for SS2013, so consider employing both trends with one fell swoop in a white and neon ensemble. Neons are already bright, but they’ll pop even more against a pure white background.
Black and White
Black is yet another trendy color for the season and it looks particularly dramatic when paired with its opposite, white. You’ll find dozens of garments that already mix the two colors (lots of black/white chevrons and stripes, for example), but feel free to mix your own separates.
