Spring is busting out! You might even have to shield your eyes from all the vibrant majesty surrounding you. But don’t look away long. There are style lessons to be learned from nature, if you just pay attention.
Go ahead…mix color. You cannot deny these color combinations stun.
If you look good in one color and you look good in other color, try wearing those colors together. BAM!
Nature mixes brights together all the time, and so does Ralph Lauren.
Green seems to be universally fresh.
Pick your palette. Go gentle or bold, or somewhere in between.
Don’t be afraid to Deadhead
Look at this pitiful geranium. Pretend this plant is your closet. Yes, your closet. There are a lot of fine flowers here, but you can’t see the good stuff, because the ‘spent’ blooms are in the way. Is it like that with your closet? Is it time to weed out those garments that are fillers, not thrillers–like these wilted blossoms?
Just imagine what your closet would look like if you simply dead-headed all those outfits you no longer love, can’t fit into, or those that are just plain boring?
Why not keep the best of the best in full view. Clothes that you can wear NOW. Clothes that make you feel fabulous.
And never underestimate the importance of color: The eye is drawn to it.
Look at this photo. Where does your eye go?
Color gets oodles of attention. And as my co-author, Janna Beatty, says:
“Color is the first thing seen, and the last thing remembered.”
I think this hummingbird and butterfly would totally agree.
