Color of the Week: Orange

Summer is coming and you know what that means?! Bright colors! Last weeks color was Teal; this weeks color is Orange/Tangerine. Orange is a daring color, you have to know how to balance it or you’ll look like a walking highlighter. This color looks great in any skin color but it especially stands out with darker skin tone, it’s a breath-taking, gorgeous contrast. Wear this color as a bold pair of pants, skirt, or dress; it can even be used as pop of color in a scarf or bag. When using try to use with simple patterns or color blocking with other bright colors such as turquoise, fuchsia or even yellow. Here are some examples of how to wear orange this spring/summer season..

Now Trending: Adidas

Adidas has made a comeback; we all know the brand was big in the 90s, but it’s back and boy it’s everywhere. Celebrities like Rihanna and Rita Ora have been seen sporting their Adidas gear, and so can you. My personal favorite Adidas piece is the Adidas Superstar, it’s the perfect sneaker, white with a touch of black in the stripes; it matches with everything! These sneakers look great with dresses, jeans, skirts and black pants, you can dress them down or dress them up. Here are some ways you can use your Adidas Superstar:

Showstoppers at the MET Gala

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week you’ve seen the show-stopping avant guarde looks that hit the red carpet this past Monday at the MET Gala. I’m a sucker for extravagantly out of the box looks and loved these two: Rihanna’s eternal robe designed by Guo Pei and Sarah Jessica Parker’s headpiece designed by Phillip Treacy. Now those are what I call fashion statements! I’m all about pushing the limits and dressing up in exaggerated things once in a while and when better than the MET Gala? Here are some pictures so you can see for yourselves..

Color of the Week: Teal

It’s spring and colors are in! This week’s color is teal/aquamarine, it’s in the official pantone palette of colors for spring! Teal is an accent color that could be matched with white, beige, coral, light brown, and denim. It could be used in any piece of clothing as long as it doesn’t over power the whole outfit and you end up looking like a little blueberry. Accent the outfit with a nude bag and pumps or sandals (not anything too colorful, remember that the teal is your pop of color) and you’re done! Here are some perfect spring ready outfits..
