Bold color and prints

Posted by

Fashion is forever changing with trendy styles staying on trend for a hot second and its on to the next. One  thing I noticed is the bold colors and prints popping up all over the world. Fashion is global and the more technology improves the more we will all be on the same accord with whats hot and whats not. Is bold color or bold print your thing? Unfortunately for me the answer is no! But being involved in the fashion world means you have to take risks and be able to step outside of your comfort zone. 

What this means for me is to open up my non print monochromatic world and at a splash of color and sprinkle in a bold print or two. I plan to do this with strategy. For the bold prints my choice will be to try it with scarf or headband perhaps this spring and summer bold print swimwear and maxi dresses will be good. The bold colors well... That is a whole other beast. 

Thinking of bold color just makes me smile nervously knowing what a challenge this will be. However to be a true fashionista and stay current one but step out side of the comfort zone and try new things. When I think of bold color I think turquoise and I'm planing to wear that in jewelry. Next is yellow and this can be done with a dress no matter what kind. Red which can be done in a tasteful and classy way by using it as a pop in a monochromatic outfit. Black and white aren't looked at as bold colors but they are. Actually the safest way for me to stay in my comfort zone and stay current will be to stick with what works for me which is monochromatic and add a splash of bold color or a bold print to make things fresh. No matter what your personal taste is I challenge you to join me in the new wave of fashion with bold color and prints.
