Let's talk about Coral!

One of my favorite trends of the spring season is the color, Coral.  It is a great shade of Orange (my favorite color) and one that is easy to wear because there are so many places to make it pop!!  The easiest way to add coral to your wardrobe is in jewelry.  When I was putting looks together for Brooke, I found a great coral necklace in her closet.

I paired it with this Banana Republic top that still had the tags on it.  It was a cute floral (another trend) printed silk top with a self belt.  I usually do not like self belts but this one came with the same print on a ribbon style belt and when I tied it in a sweet bow, it really made the top flattering to Brooke's tiny waist.  We also found this bag in the closet under a few others and Brooke remembered it came with a longer strap.  I added the longer strap and slung it across her cross body style.  This added a new trend to the look and updated the top and basic pair of black Seven jeans.

We also found a cute pair of coral colored flat Liz Claiborne sandals.  Besides jewelry, shoes are another easy way to add a pop of color.  Especially if the color does not work with your skin tone directly, shoes and jewelry keep it away from your face, therefore anyone can wear it!

Here is another close up of the coral necklace with a simple striped button down.  The coral really pops with against the top.  Paired back to the white Seven (yes, again, stick with the brand that works for you) this really looked great.

Coral is just one of the fabulous spring trends!!  The warm weather is right around the corner (fingers crossed) so it is never too soon to think about adding things to your closet in this beautiful color.  It can also be brought into your look through makeup... Chanel has a wonderful Rouge Allure color in their spring collection!  All of the great makeup lines (Bobbi, Laura Mercier, Armani) are all showing a clean simple face for spring and shades of coral can be found to add touches to the lips, eyes and cheeks.  There are so many wonderful makeup artists around to help you achieve that wonderful Spring face... I happen to know a few of them if you're interested!!  Until next time, Xoxo!!
