Spring Forward with Fashion

With the dawn of a new year comes an anxious look forward into seasons to come. The coming of January means that it is time to start thinking about how to begin incorporating brighter, bolder colors into your wardrobe. We have spent the last several months embracing the dark colors that are a sign of winter and I don’t know about you, but I am ready for to give some love to the bright colors that have been hiding in my closet all winter long. January is the time to bring out colors like bright blues, and bright pinks that are so popular in the springtime. You can use some of those bright accessories with neutral tops as way to give a nod to spring or you can go all in a pair your bright top with a denim bottom and celebrate the change of season all day long.

In this outfit, I chose a royal blue and white combination as my bright color for the day. It is bright enough to give my mood a boost, but not so overtly spring that becomes inappropriate to wear in January. The light fabric is warm enough for a January day in Texas, but if your weather dictates another layering piece,  you can pair your royal blue top with a denim jacket or a white turtleneck for additional warmth. Now is the time to begin evaluating your closet and preparing for a new season. Bringing out bright colors means that we must be prepared to style them with flair.  Stay tuned as in future editions we begin our wardrobe transition from winter to spring.
