Fostering Fashion: Addressing All Of Your Fashion Needs

Fashion Stylist, Isabella’s of Brookside

A reader writes in, “What are the spring colors and how will they be worn?”

Welcome spring with a vibrant pop of color. In the now for color this season is neon! Yes, fluorescent is fabulously faddish. The question is: can EVERYONE wear it? The answer: EVERYTHING in moderation!

In your teens and 20’s you can pile it on without a worry. Layer those tissue tees, try colored skinny jeans or go for it in a neon pink tailored jumpsuit, pair with layers of gold jewelry and espadrilles or wedges.

If you’re in your early 30’s, you could go either way. My suggestion is if you feel like the clothes are wearing you instead of you wearing the clothes, you might want to err on the cautious side of certain trends. Let one piece be your staple or use accessories to dawn the look. Try a neon scarf, bangles, or a tee paired with more classic and staple pieces.

For the Fab Forty’s and above, a scarf or other accessories are still perfectly acceptable. For a little added fun try a splash of this highly hi-lighted color in a handbag, shoes or nail color.

Even though a touch of neon is the latest craze in fashion, don’t rule out the rich and bold jewel tones, self-assured salmons and bubbly and lively lemon hues.

Have fun with color and don’t be afraid to step out of your box and try something new!
