Spring is a great time to update your wardrobe. Adding whites and bright colors is a great way to create the look and feel of Spring. Choose pieces that match your lifestyle, personal style, coloring and figure. Beware of articles and advertisements that list those things you “must have” this season. No matter how trendy the style may be, there are no “must haves.” Why? Because we each have our own, unique lifestyle, personal style, coloring, and figure. What may be a harmonious look for one person, can be completely awful for another. Here are a few examples of “must haves” that relatively few can wear well, and many can just plain do without. The photo above shows a popular trend right now, short shorts, pastels and polka-dots. All of these characteristic reflect a personal style that is very Yin oriented. If your coloring is fair, your figure is just right, and your personal style is playful and whimsical, then this look may work for you. If not, you may end up looking like you’re trying to be someone else. More trend tips:
Next time you see a list of “must haves”, ask yourself, “Does this print / color enhance my own coloring, or does it fight with it? What is the first thing others see when they look at me? Is their attention going where I want it to go?” Remember that you can pick and choose the trends you want to adopt this season. Choose those that will enhance your wonderful features, if the “must have” look doesn’t do that, then let someone else have it.
