Refresh Your Look Affordably, with Spring’s Newest Colors and Top Trends
Perfect weather and activities await (Easter, weddings, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations –oh my!). Time for a spring wardrobe refresh, with the following style tips from Terry Lynn Morris, director of marketing, Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores.
Terry Tip #1: Know what colors look good on you: Your skin tone and hair color has everything to do with selecting the appropriate colors that work for you, regardless of what’s “in.” For example, if you are a classic “winter” with intense hair and eye color, you will look best in bold shades, such as jewel tones. Black is also back; true, it’s not really a color, but black looks great on just about everyone, and is so chic.
Terry Tip # 2 Know your style and what shapes wear well: Spring 2016 is all about extremes on both sides of the color spectrum. Bold and bright colors, such as sunny yellow and fiery red, are also joined with calming colors, such as lilac gray and a subtle mocha brown. Trends such as leather jackets, extreme embellishments, and yes, even flannel, are hitting the runways; however, just because it’s on the catwalk doesn’t mean it’s right for you. Some women are too well endowed to wear horizontal stripes like those seen in this year’s most colorful trend, rainbow stripes. Don’t be married to “what’s in” if it doesn’t work for you.
Terry Tip #3 Accessorize: This is one of the easiest way to integrate new spring trends and colors into your wardrobe without making a large financial commitment. Belts, purses, jewelry, scarves, and even shoes in a trendy color can enliven your favorite basics.
Outlet shopping centers have incredible finds, often at 20-70% and more off retail, providing a great place to stock up after closet spring cleaning. Osceola Woman took a look at your local outlet, Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, where new stores include Express Factory Outlet and eSunWear Swimwear Outlet. Not only will this laid-back, open air center keep you “on trend,” but also, on time! With drive up parking, head there on your lunch break, or when running weekend errands for a power shopping spree. Or, make a day of it and relax at World of Coffee Internet Café or Frankie Farrell’s Irish Pub & Grille Restaurant. And shhh; they’re right next door to Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa!
