spring ahead: rainbow bright


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned pastels are a hot trend for Spring. Well, it turns out super bright and bold also happen to be on the forecast, in a huge way. I was at Bloomingdale's yesterday and the colors popped out at me everywhere I turned. Chartreuse, turquoise, magenta, poppy, neon, neon, neon. I think I saw bold hues from every single designer they carry. I'm guessing the head-to-toe color block look isn't for everyone, but I challenge those who prefer the black/neutrals safe zone to branch out this Spring and play with color. Accessories can go a long way. Try a vibrant scarf, colorful earrings or bright ballet flats. 
Even Vince, who is often known for muted tones, is going bright this season. I especially love the mustard shorts. 
A trend so strong even Bloomingdale's will modify their little brown bags.  
Dolce Vita suede turquoise booties. They also come in bright red.
