What are the first colors you think of when you hear “springtime?” Definitely not burgundy, dark brown or burnt orange, as those colors are reserved for the calm early nights of autumn. You also would not think of the subtle shades of blue and purple that winter brings.
In springtime, you may think of colors that are alive and that bring out the adventurous side of you. Nectarine, the calm and sweet version of orange, makes a great choice of color for a loose-fitting blouse over a pair of dark denim skinny jeans, or perhaps even as a lipstick color. Emerald, another example, may seem strange to wear in the spring since it is a cool color; however, its light tone and ability to accentuate the warmer colors around it make it a lovely way to keep your outfit from becoming too intense.
Coral, a personal favorite color of mine, is the new orange. It has warmth and yet does not excessively demand attention the way red does. Also, it can enliven any fashion item from a casual blazer to a flower shaped ring, the focus of this blog post. This ring, about one inch wide, is composed of two layers of intricately designed petals, all united by the oval-shaped center. The small petals, designed as to nearly glisten as they allow the sunlight to bounce off of them, and the center that projects into the space around it, make the flower come alive. In addition, the gold rim that envelops each petal, along with a thin layer around the center, accentuates the unity of parts.
You can put this ring on when you go out to dinner in an all-black outfit, so as to bring immediate attention to the incredibly detailed piece of beauty. You can also slip it on your finger on your way out the door, when you are wearing a casual outfit of jeans and a neutral-colored top. This accessory brings many opportunities to you, most of all to find ways to make your wardrobe as lively as spring.
