HSWI April 2014

A good rule of thumb with tropical bright colors – if the combo exists in nature, you can probably wear it without looking insane. Toucans and other tropical birds know what they’re doing. But you don’t want to look like a Tommy Bahama ad. We’re talking classy bright color compliments to pink. The colors are bright but you don’t need summer heat to wear these outfits, bring on the brights now!

How She'd Wear It with Style and Cheek - Pink with Brights "Orange"

1. Sabine Pink Glass Stone Necklace

2. Kenneth Jay Lane Slim Bracelet Watch

3. Ivanka Trump ‘Gelana’ Floral Sandal

4. Take a Closer Loop Dress from ModCloth

5. Kate Spade New York Cueva Rosa Stud Earrings

6. O’2ND Collar Pointed Jacket

7. Pretty Ships ‘Bahia’ Print Clutch

Do not be afraid of orange. I have less orange in my closet than any other color but paired with a hot pink dress is one sure fire way to give yourself a mood boost. This jacket will grab people’s attention from across a room, but no matter how bright the orange there’s no doubt that this cute dress is the real showstopper. Throw in some fun floral patterned heels and a Brazilian ‘Bahia’ styled clutch and we’re not only mixing and matching complimentary brights, we’re mixing patterns.

Comfy classy slouchy pants are shimmying their way up my wishlist. I tried a pair on this weekend for the first time and surprisingly they fit great. I’ve always been a fan but now I want to be a participant. I can’t think of a more chic way to stay lady-like but comfortable in the warmer Spring weather. As far as colors – blues and pinks have always been a great combo, with each piece here making the other piece a little brighter. Throw in some chunky gold jewelry, and some shades and you’ll be ready for any daytime spring event from brunch to shopping to horse racing.
