Smart Sale Shopping: Colors


Yellow, lavender, blue and green are some of the top colors for spring. But if you can only remember one color, THINK PINK. You’ll want to look for either a bright pink, like fuchsia and magenta or a neutral pink, like rose dust.

Though I love bright, I’m not a fan of how I look in hot pink, so I’ve gone the neutral route. At one of Bloomingdale’s sales, I picked up this romantic rose cami with beige lace overlay from one of my favorite designer, Nanette Lepore.

For winter, I wanted to play with contrast, so I tucked it into a black high-waist pencil skirt with a touch of sheen. But for spring, I plan on styling the top more casual, pairing it with denim and other neutrals. I actually bought this blazer on sale three years ago. I’ve made it current by cuffing up the sleeves to expose the striped lining. Just goes to show that classics, as I said before, are sound investments.
