Embolden Accessories for Spring 2015

Colour Advice for Spring 2015: Pantone tells us . . . This season there is an emphasis on the cooler and softer side of the colour spectrum, with bold colour taking a more supportive role as an accent.

1) The Bold Blazer. If you are wearing head to toe beige, grey or white, choose a deeper tone or bright coloured blazer.

2) The Bolder Bag. Resurrect your beige, black and whites. If you are wearing a beige pant, white top, and black and white jacket, upstage the look with a different textured purse in black and white. For example, wear a black and white striped bag with a black and white floral jacket. The purse you see here comes from a previous season by Michael Kors (photo source: Lyst).

3) The Boldest Bag - a handbag of the same intensity in colour. Choose a bag that has the same colour tones as the dress or top you are wearing. Use your sense of balance. 

In following that trend it's probably best to tone down the bold pattern of the top with the bag, instead of accentuating it.

Choose a bag that has the same colour tones and but an even bolder print. The floral pattern does not have to be exactly the same, just the tones of the colours.

  1. Great tips for this spring and summer! I have red floral blazer for this spring and summer :)

    1. . . . and the great thing is you can pick up a canvas or woven "beach" bag with a bold red and white stripe that will be perfect. I love summer!
