How to Add the Spring 2011 Fashion Trend to Your Clothes
As seen on the runway and in stores, floral is back in a big way, literally. You’ll find smaller flowers but also huge floral prints that you’ll love, despite the fact that your grandma may have the same item in her closet. This is one of the easiest trends to transfer into the work place. Keep a look out for floral blouses, floral cardigans even some pencil skirts with flowery fabrics are just fine for work. Feel free to wear a headband with flower embellishments too, but make sure you don’t go overboard. Flowers should be an accent to your outfit at the office, not all over.
This spring, everyone will be donning bright colors and we mean electrically bright. Oranges, chartreuses, reds, purples, you name it – they’re here and very saturated. This is another trend that you should work sparingly in the mix. If you’re wearing a bold orange cardigan, then keep your blouse and bottoms neutral. One of our favorite ways to infuse your professional look with color is by accessorizing. A bold necklace or bracelet will make your wardrobe pop, but allow people to still take you seriously.
