Dressing bold is the new dressing down. Let’s face it. We’re all ready to get back out there. It’s time for some actual face time with the world again. Bring back the family gatherings, dinner with friends, community events, and full social calendars. After more than a year spent half dressed for Zoom meetings and keeping it super cozy in our loungewear, we’re ready to make a splash back into our social lives. We’ve dressed down. Now we’re ready to dress bold and let the world know we’re back.
Don’t get us wrong. We loved our cozy loungewear around the house but stepping outside feels like it's worth a little bit of celebration. Even at casual events where dressing down is totally appropriate, we’re craving something more. Something that makes a fashion statement. Let’s take a bold step in a new direction and make dressing bold the new dressing down.
Spring is here and we're ready to embrace all the colors of the rainbow! From pops of poppy red to brilliant sky blue, we're moving past the loungewear neutrals and bringing bright colors back into our daily wardrobes. Just have a few errands to run? Slip into a bold colored jean or sneaker for a pop of something different while cruising down the grocery aisles. Brunch with the ladies? Snag that brilliant jacket or cardigan and add a bold accent piece for a statement making arrival. Dare to be bright. Dare to be bold.
We still love a classic jean and t-shirt combo, but we’re ready to elevate this simple look with some eye-catching accents. This Old Faves Made New look pairs elegant navy neutrals with a nearly neon blue bag and necklace combination for a bold update to a chic look. Consider adding a statement necklace, bold bag, or bright pair of shoes for an easy update to any classics in your wardrobe. Plus, accents are an easy and affordable way to change your wardrobe without breaking the bank!
Play with prints
Take bold to a new level. Create a unique look by playing with color and print. Mix different print weights like trying smaller prints with larger, bolder with simpler, and lighter with heavier for an overall balanced look. For example, pair a simple stripe with a complex floral, an easy plaid with a bold stripe, or a modern abstract with an animal print. You can also try complimentary or contrasting color combinations for that little something extra. The possibilities are endless! The key here is to play around with color and print to find a look that speaks to you.
If you’re tired of playing it safe and are ready to take a risk, fashionably speaking, then let's shake it up. Let's air out our bold looks and arrive in style. You don’t need a reason to dress up anymore. You’ve waited long enough. Whether you’re heading out to brunch with the girls or just running some errands, its time to make a statement in the everyday.
