Spring is now most definitely in the air. Blue skies and warm sunshine on your back gives you a wonderful feeling after such a cold winter. Clothes in bright colours are now everywhere in the shops which will be a welcome lift in all this economic doom and gloom. There use to be a time, where if you had the classic British pale skin look, you were not meant to wear bright colours but the youthful benefits of brighter colours near your face have been voiced for some time now.
If you are still feeling a little shy of brightly coloured clothes, start with just one brighter colour such as a top or jacket or accessorize with brighter colours.
A statement piece of jewellery from Angie Gooderham whose bright yellow bangle was featured in Women and Home (April 2009) – page 32 is a fun way to add a bit of colour. If this seems a bit ambitious or you would prefer a necklace, then go for pretty rather than too bright with Angie Gooderham’s mixed pink and silver bead necklace which adds girly but sophisticated touch to your look.
The gold resin Gold resin cuff as featured in Vogue (April 2009) – page 199 is not for the faint hearted. However, gold bangles are timeless and add an instant elegance to a spring/Summer outfit. Try the Angie Gooderham gold resin bangle below and you can wear it for years to come.
Accessorising is an excellent way to inject some life into an outfit without the expense of a whole new look.
