Girlfriend Guru fashion adviceSpring has returned.  The Earth is like a child that knows poems.  ~Rainer Maria Rilke

The early bulbs are blooming with spring joy in my garden. Their familiar color is comforting, and always a little surprising against the drab beds that I haven’t gotten around to tending to yet. My closet also looks a little drab since I haven’t gotten around to adding spring color there either.

Fortunately, girlfriend guru and fashion expert DONNA GAMACHE is here to help. We can all benefit from her advice on how to incorporate the latest colors–whether we’re overhauling the entire closet (I wish!) or adding a small splash of spring. What are your tips for spring color, girlfriend?

It is always nice to know what the experts are saying about what to wear and what colors are in trend. This gives you a good sense of what you can add to your wardrobe each season to keep it updated and modern. However, if the colors that are in trend don’t look good on you…steer clear of them. It is better to be dressed in color that really works for your skin tone rather than wear a color that is in trend and just doesn’t work for you. Or, choose to wear the new color away from your face. This is a little secret that stylists use to help clients add seasonal color to their wardrobe.

Here are some quick tips for what to do if the Pantone Spring color  doesn’t work for you.

  • · Emerald is at the top of the list for Spring but this color doesn’t necessarily look great on everyone. If this is true for you, turn to the right hue of turquoise instead. This color looks great on everyone and will give you a fresh look for the season.
  • · African Violet is another color that doesn’t look great on everyone. If this is the case for you, try a skirt or pant in this trendy Spring color and remember to keep the color that is closest to your face in a neutral color that works with your skin tone.
  • · Another great Spring color is Poppy Red. If Poppy Red doesn’t work for you, choose a pattern that has other colors to help neutralize the red.

No matter what you choose. Be sure you know what color looks best for your skin tones. Need more information about that?
