How To Wednesday! Colored Denim is HOT!

There is no denying it...colored denim is here to stay this spring! I can't stop smiling! There is something about color that just makes me happy! After years of wearing blue, black and grey denim--I am more then thrilled at the rainbow of choices available!

What color is your favorite?
This trend is fairly new and for those of you still warming up to it, here are some "How To Wear Colored Tips"

1. Contrast. It's all about contrast. Try a simple neutral pattern and pair it up with a cardi in the same color family--just don't match the blues exactly. Mix & match colors. Try blue and pink, or mustard with navy.

2. White, Black or Neutral. Attention will go to the pants if you keep the colors basic. These blue pants POP against a neutral, soft patterned top. However, when in doubt, wear white! Attention is sure to go to the pants and not seem like overkill!

3. Solids or Low Key Pattern. Patterns are so fun! But when your wearing colored denim be sure NOT to go overboard. An overly pattered shirt will scream LOOK AT ME! You want to draw attention but pick one. Denim or top?

*Secret Tip* Wear the same colored shoes! This tricks the eye and will make your legs look longer!!

4. Keep Accessories Simple! When wearing denim try not to be too matchy, matchy. Let your jeans do the talking. Throw on a spring scarf or simple earrings. Just make sure you don't keep them all the same color! You don't want to look like a blueberry!

5. Keep is casual. Don't go overboard. When wearing color try a denim blazer/jacket or a casual tee.

Spring brings new flowers, new leaves and new beginnings! Why not try a new trend--one that can brighten anyones day! As always, our shop girls are there to help! We are more then happy to help you pull off this new trend and make your closet a colorful rainbow!

Rock the baby doll sock!

Socks with open toed shoes--fashion faux pas? What once was a fashion NO NO has turned into the new hot trend! This look showed up on Oscar de la Renta's sping 2012 runway (and several other designers)

Think of socks as a new fun accessory! They can add a touch of creativity to any outfit and make it romantic, classic, sophisticated, trendy or funky. Best news is when executed RIGHT, socks can update any old shoe! (and yes, they are acceptable for women over 20!)

Here are some tips to rock the look!
1. Bare legs are a MUST! No wearing socks with leggings, jeans or tights.

2. EXPERIMENTATION is KEY! Be creative. Try to match the sock with the color of shoe or try and wear different colors and textures. Mix things together...just try it on before wearing it out!

3. YES, you can wear socks with open toed shoes! But you must make sure you get a sock that doesn't show a seam. Also, make sure the sock is THIN! No big bulky socks with Tevas!

4. Think of the season...pastels for spring or bold colors for fall?

5. Avoid looking like a school girl...NO pleated skirts. Also be sure to pair with a laced up ankle boot with a stiletto, wedge or chunky heel.

6. Consider the type of shoes you're wearing. If you mix pattens & textures then make sure the shoe is more solid or vice versa. If your sock is simple spice it up with a fun textured or bright fun shoe!

I know this trend may scare off a few and there is a very fine line between chic and tacky, but the key is to experiment and have FUN with your outfits! If all else fails...come to Bags That Fit and our shop girls will help you execute this look to perfection!
