Last week, we discussed the color of the year, Ultra Violet. This week I’m wearing a slightly different and personally more flattering shade of violet, more of a fuchsia, or for those who follow color trends … more of a “Radiant Orchid” or “Spring Crocus.”
This pretty lightweight cardigan with the tie-bell-sleeve detail was a Christmas present from my work bestie, Lynn. (Those of you who follow my Instagram probably know her already). Isn’t it pretty? It’s a great winter to spring transition piece … wear it with a little pullover now and a t-shirt or blouse in springtime. (Sale alert: cardigan now on sale in this color and blue, also available in black, gray, pink for regular price.)
Trends for Spring
Shades of violet, raw distressed hems, abalone/black pearl jewelry, white bags, and stripes (oh so many stripes!) are all on trend for spring 2018.
