Spring's Colors and Textures 2017 January 17 2017
I love everything about Spring, the smell of crisp, clean air with hints of flowers in bloom. Fresh green grass and pastel blue skies create my favorite colors. No wonder Pantone chose “Greenery” as their color of the season. It evokes optimism, hope and rejuvenation. This year as I was in the market shopping for Pippy&Lily’s new Spring apparel and accessories, I found myself drawn to another amazing color pallet. We all must own a blouse, cape, vest or cover up in the color blush, champagne, rose, pink, taupe or peach. I love these colors, especially when the fabric is soft lace, crocheted cotton or sheer cotton. The styles were romantic and feminine. Another color that oozes Spring and Summer is Navy Blue. The ponchos, cover-ups, scarves, dresses and blouses were amazing. The color and styles are clean, sophisticated yet fun and reminds me of being on the Atlantic Ocean. Say tah-tah to Black for now and hello to gorgeous Navy! White is so beautiful when it’s crisp and especially in a crocheted poncho with soft fringe. Beach cover ups were everywhere in every style. I can’t wait for Summer.
Accessories such as handbags, jewelry, wallets, hair accessories etc..are all in good company with the romantic theme of Spring. Cut out totes and evening bags in black or taupe are perfect for a Spring day. Lace chokers, delicate chain lariats and earrings are a must, along with suede lariat chokers. Pink druzy stone earrings and necklaces look amazing with Spring’s new romantic fabrics and colors.
Jewelry is delicate and very inspirational this season. Necklaces, bracelets and rings all whisper a beautiful inspirational and/or spiritual word to remind us daily of what’s really important in life. I especially love the leather wrap bracelets with many different empowering words surrounding ones wrist. I specifically like the charitable contributions made to humanity with every sale. This is the season of newness, fresh starts, opening windows, cleaning out closets and adding the colors and textures of Spring!
