Warming Trend

IMG_9033sm2
Scene: Spring. It finally arrived, but a bit erratic in temperature. Cold to warm to hot to cool. Yesterday it was hot, today was cool. Style choices based on the thermometer. Sporting white kicks (sneakers) are on the streets of Manhattan during the day and white nights too. White is one of the seasons bright colors. Black never goes away. Caramel, orange, yellow, green, and blue. Denim on the street and the runways. Streamlined and more polished activewear. Stripes, gingham, plaid, and checks. Flower power in colorful floral graphics. 70’s and a bohemian sensibility are groovy too.

Winter Goes

IMG_5721sm
Scene: The first day of Spring brought more snow. Winter was making an unwelcome comeback. And, it seems Winter wants to hang around. The March vernal equinox coincided with a super moon and a total eclipse of the sun.
The timeless camel color utilized by menswear designers for Fall 2014 continues into Spring/Summer 2015 in lighter tints. Designers used cream, others opted for white, and vivid brights. Three color combinations for this season are khaki with white, black with white, and blue with brown. Blues are a hit again, and especially washed out jeans. Flashback 90s, plaid shirts, not flannel, wrapped around the waist is the perfect grunge accessory.
