Celebrate the Season with a Pop of Color

By Laurie Johnston

Many of us are afraid of color – typically we stick with neutral because it’s safe. But, the summer season has arrived and color is fun! Pink, yellow green, orange, lavender – a pop of color can make a big difference and also make us happy. Make a statement with a large colorful necklace and bracelet, or even shoes because our feet do get noticed. You could even try a splashy pocketbook, hat, scarf or belt. Be it a subtle hint or bold statement, brighten your ensemble and brighten your day.

It’s easy to enhance your favorite black dress with a yellow scarf or a beautiful turquoise necklace. People come in and say they always use black or grey and, actually, it is easier to accessorize. But take a chance on color! You may be surprised at how great you look in a bright shade.

I can help you get started with color. First, I’ll look at your hair and skin color – yellow isn’t for everyone, for example. Color is specific to the individual, and you want to try something that’s going to brighten you. You can start small with a statement necklace and work up to more color.

A colorful accessory can make your entire outfit pop. Everyone will ask where you got it! Color will make you feel good. The sun is shining – we should be shining. Today, I thought about wearing jeans, but I decided on white pants – it’s the time of year to lighten and brighten. White pants are a mainstay for the summer or a white skirt or shirt. They go with anything. Today I put on white Capri’s, a blue blouse, and blue slides with silver and pearls on them.

A customer offered to buy the shirt right off my back today – and she may not have tried that shirt on if she saw it hanging on the rack! Last year I had a woman come in – I had on a cute, fringed vest that she loved. At 5 o’clock, she came back. I didn’t have her size in stock, but she said yes you do, you’re wearing it! So, I took it off and sold it to her. All of us wear what we sell so you can see how a bright color will look. Some things on a hanger look completely different when you put them on.
