It may be still be chilly for the majority of us, but spring is coming sooner than you may realize. For us, Fall/Winter ’13 fashion week signifies that not only will temps warm up in about a month, but that it’s time to anticipate our spring wardrobes. Flattering mint hues have been cropping up in several spring collections and on celebrities everywhere. If you’re in search of a signature color for the spring, your favorite image consultant has you covered!
A mint jacket (like this steal from H&M at less than $50!) is an easy way to transition dark winter clothes to springtime. Pair it with black and gray pencil skirts to add a bit of color to your work wardrobe.
An accent as subtle as a skinny belt can transform your whole look. Try a patent mint belt with your favorite pair of jeans, or around the waist of any dress for a flattering hourglass silhouette. Skinny belts work on most figure types. Other accessories that look great in mint include clutches, enamel bangles, and if you’re feeling particularly bold, nail polish.
We’ve already hailed colored denim
as a fun way to amp up your casual wear, and we stand by that choice. Pair these Current/Elliot jeans with a chiffon blouse and nude pumps for a polished daytime ensemble. If you’re on the curvier side, find jeans in a boot cut or straight leg style.
This Kate Spade mint satchel is a great alternative to your standard black or brown winter bag, and coordinates well with almost any spring shade. It’s both large and structured enough to use at the office, and transitions seamlessly to after-work cocktails. As you know at Elan Image Management, image consulting, we believe accessories, are every woman’s secret weapon.
5. Pencil Skirt
A mint pencil skirt is ideal for both the office and a daytime event. Since it isn’t the usual gray or black that’s typically reserved for the office, it won’t be seen as drab workwear. Use this J. Crew pencil (that’s under $100!) to dress up a fitted t-shirt for a luncheon or picnic.
