Hello, Gorgeous! It’s no surprise that spring clothing means bright colors and bold prints, but what if I told you it’s TOTALLY fine to wear darker hues for spring?! This may seem like crazy talk and today’s post is going to convince you to add some darker tones to your spring looks!
Let’s get styling, babe!
DARKER HUES ARE BOTH CHIC AND SLIMMING
Anytime you can put chic and slimming into one sentence you know that outfit is going to look amazing!! This statement is so true about wearing darker tones. Wearing darker hues, especially black, has the most slimming effect on the body. This color hides any problem areas and gives your overall figure a sophisticated silhouette.
Plus, wearing darker tones instantly makes your outfit more chic. I consider this little style tip #fashionmagic because it totally works. If I ever want to feel more chic I always put on darker colors.. always.
ABILITY TO PLAY WITH TEXTURE AND ACCESSORIES
When wearing more subdued tones like grey and black this is the perfect opportunity to play with texture and accessories. The reason for this is because darker tones are not as loud brighter colors and you can use texture and accessories to help give your look a little extra glam!
For example, my romper is a dark grayish purple color but when mixed with this gorgeous lace it makes the romper really pop! I also added my black floppy hat as a fun accessory to complete the look! If I was wearing a bright pink romper with lace and then added a floppy hat the outfit may appear over-styled and that’s not what Blush Babes want!
Wear darker hues as a way to experiment with various accessories you’ve been dying to style in your closet and incorporate more textures such as lace you wouldn’t normally get to play with in a bright spring look!
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Blush Babes are always looking for ways their outfits can stand out. Wearing darker hues in a sea of bright patterns and colors is the most chic way to accomplish this for spring! Think about this for a minute- if you see a girl walking down the street in a black romper covered in lace or embellishments it’s going to make you do a double take. Why? Because this girl is wearing a hue traditionally not worn during this season and she’s ROCKING it (insert emoji praise hands here!).
PERFECT FOR FALL TRANSITION
When the inevitable transition from summer to fall rolls around having a darker hued dress or romper is the perfect piece to wear during those fluctuating temps! Not only will you be chic for spring, but you’re going to get tons of use out of this darker colored item (#heckyes!).
