trend that will never die.
Like i had said earlier, this is a tribute to Coco Chanel who introduced this trend for women .I will keep
this series going (as most of you requested) till her Birthday month i.e August .
To any element that wants some 'life & love' add a flower.
If stripes seem plain to you, add a floral touch, either with accessories or let the print do it for you!
Florals and stripes work beautifully in harmony. In fact, many fabric prints use this combination.
It combines the femininity of flowers with the smartness of stripes.
Add colored denims, and its a whole new happy outfit for you .
Since choosing stripes is easy, let us concentrate on the bottoms- the colored denims.
Colored denims- not your thing?Most people avoid risking their wardrobe with a colored denim.
Luckily,people have now started embracing them ,thanks to their availability and people
like you and me who want this cheery & colorful addition.
One of the reasons why people avoid colored bottoms is because they feel there are limited ways
of styling one.
But believe me, once you start wearing them, you will realise they can be quite versatile.
Colored denims go very well with striped tops.Its either white or its stripes.
Although unlike your classical blue denims, colored denims have to be chosen with care.
How to chose the colored denim that suits you?
I'll save you the complex exercise of identifying your skintone etc.etc,to identify the right shades.
Instead, I will quote Leatrice Eiseman, author of The Color Answer Book ($10,amazon.com) and director of the Pantone Color Institute( Remember the post on Pantone color of the year, here ?), the international authority on color.
"Some colors work for all skin tones and hair colors, because they fall into the middle of the color spectrum, meaning they're not too warm or too cool," says Leatrice Eiseman
She lists the 4 universally flattering clothing colors.
And i believe these are the 4 colors that are the safest bet irrespective of your skin-tone!
Buy any denim from this color chart , and you my darlings, will rock the colored denim trend like you never did before!
