I can’t stand when people say, “Oh, I could never wear _______!” Sure there are things that are not flattering on everyone (cough* leggings as pants*), but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear them. I believe fashion is about proportions and how to make a trend your own, versus just wearing something because it’s trendy. Yellow is a super tricky color to wear (below, Darbi is rocking her yellow lace top), but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear yellow! Find the right SHADE of a color, and you can really wear more than you might think. With Spring coming up quickly, we wanted to tackle the hottest shades and colors and how to wear them, no matter your skin tone and hair color.
As always, Forever 21 remains one of our favorite, affordable clothiers for Spring. They always have hot trends and low prices, making them ideal for a senior who is trying to save money for college. This bright coral halter top would be beautiful on olive skin tones (like the model in the link), but you fair-skinned beauties can pull it off by layering it under a neutral piece like a cardigan or denim jacket to keep it from washing out your skin. This crochet mini dress is another cute winner, but it’s pale shade is tricky to wear for gals with mid-tones in their skin. Try layering it under, or adding a crop top or chambray over the top to dress it down. You can also keep your best shades closer to your face/hair by wearing pastels in the bottom half of your outfit (i.e.: skirts and shorts rather than blouses). By using layers or jewelry to keep unflattering shades farther from your face, you can expand your wardrobe repertoire.
