Color Blocking Is Rocking Spring 2012..You Ready??

Color Blocking 101

Color blocking heating up spring 2012! Learn how to find your color combo!

Yes, spring is almost here! I like to always bring spring in a bit early by throwing some amazing color into my life! It is true that color does affect your mood. Whether the color is on you or around you, it can make that personality shine! A unique quality of the color blocking trend is that it can be utilized by women of all ages and during every type of adventure that we create when we color block. If you are at work, rocking a bridesmaid dress, out on the town with friends, or just a cute mom shopping at target, when you got color blocking you got the most wearable fashion trend for spring. There are no excuses! So what are you waiting for? It goes right along with my most favorite word “MisMatched Moments”..or ok….I guess two words. So, try this new trend even if you donʼt love color. Keep reading and i’ll give tips for the “not quite sure gal” to the “I am obsessed like Jen Clyde girl.” Here are my words of color wisdom:

1. For The “Not Quite Sure” gal: Start off small. You will keep more money in that color blocked wallet of yours if you don’t buy a brand new outfit that hangs in your closet with tags on it all summer because you wanted to be on trend but really couldn’t commit. Donʼt waste your time, money, or closet space. Start off with a cute pair of shoes that are one big, bright, bold color…. or even a color blocked shoe with two colors! Maybe throw in a color blocked scarf. Either way, you are staying on trend but being true to yourself. Donʼt over do it and just baby step. You may find yourself wanting more color once you have introduced it in small doses, you know? Be confident! Show your true colors in tiny segments. Get your color blocking accessory today.

2. For the “Ok, I’m in but still need my safe black”: Ok I know I know, I am a stylist and I dress thousands of women, so I know that you all need your black or safe neutral! Itʼs almost like your security blanket…and I get that. Some donʼt like a huge color blocked on their behind because they donʼt want it to look bigger then it is, right? Or maybe you donʼt like your middle, or upper chest? So why would you block it with color? I get it! Trust me, I hear your concerns. So my word of wisdom to you is this: go with your color but anchor it with some black or neutral color such as grey! Not white though… you need to have that dark to pull it all together like a tight rope! Also, donʼt be afraid to clash and mismatch….hello, this is not a matching game we are playing here! So maybe stick with two colors and then add in a splash of neutral. A great place to throw the neutral color is in your problem areas or as a accessory with your belt, shoes, cardigan, necklace, or just anywhere to tie the outfit into one!

3. For the “I’m Obsessed, now show me which color is best?”: Stick with two or three colors at best so you donʼt look like a hot mess! That totally rhymed, but anyways moving on….. Ok choose mostly clean, no patterns, un-fussy silhouettes to keep it together like a beautiful rainbow. Some of my favorite combos are Pink and Red. This to me just works like an unexpected moment you thought would never come together. But it did and it does and it looks amazing! I also really love Teal and deep Blues. Another one to try is Yellow and Reds, so hot! Also Pink, Purple, Teal, and Orange scream, “I am amazing and I know how to color block.” So get your color on and have your spring moment be a bit mismatched and donʼt be afraid to color outside of the circle! Happy Spring!

Just remember there are really no wrong ways here, just wear it with confidence. There are so many stores from all different price points like Target to Gucci, that have these trends right now so itʼs for every one of all ages and sizes. Remember, donʼt color your troubled areas it just screams louder than it needs to in all the wrong places! Happy Coloring.

How your Style inspired your home design!! Get inspired!

This fashion and design segment was so much fun! I got to bring and show off my husband David Clyde, interior designer on the show today on the Daily Dish. Yes I am a stylist and he is an interior designer, and yes it gets a little bit heated when you have two passionate creative people running the house. But we have fun! He was lucky enough to show his design skills off on the Oprah show on the contest he won over millions of people around the world “knock Knock Nate contest.” He was lucky enough to win with two others and get to go on the show. So we did a fun segment on how you can get inspired by your style just by walking in your closet. So here is the info hope you love:

 

Watch the full episode here! Or read below either way hope you love and get inspired to have a beautiful you and in a beautiful home!

The hidden secret of little tricks designers do to get to know their clients and help them find out what will work best in their living space and bring them happiness right with in their own homes! Every January we are all mostly thinking of how we can change something this year? Either in our home or within our style, health, job, and goals. Sometimes we are all stuck, we donʼt know where to start. We look around at magazines, book stores, Pintrest, and blogs. What you don’t know is the best inspiration for your home design is sitting right in your closet. This is wear your wardrobe and your home become best friends. I put together some looks of some typical styles of clothing and I want to show you some ideas of who these looks are best friends with. What is their match made in design?

1.We have the Boho, creative, loves different patterns and textures, doesn’t mind vintage looking, and loves to collect things that show their personalities in their home. She loves oversized and comfort.They have handmade blankets for show and they donʼt care if it looks like grandmas because that is the beauty of an amazing work of art. They love to shop at  Anthropology, urban outfitter, free people, and they love a good flea market.

2.Traditional look. Their clothes are more put together, more matchy, more classic lines, and they are inspired by the great interior designs of history. They love to shop at Ethan Allen, and maybe some great antique stores. They love that old wood look but freshened up.

3.Minimalist- They like architectural and art. They love to be in clean lines and in structural clothes. Less is more and more is less. They love the big city and love the color white. We envision modern furniture and amazing sculptures in their home. They love to color block and look chic. Think of Jennifer Aniston with her less is more beautiful feel sitting on a big white chair with floor to ceiling windows. They love to read Architectural digest and shop at stores like mod living and L.A. Furniture store. Her hair is straight and cropped above her shoulders maybe. Just a smart, cultured women.

4.Hampton Fresh- This look is inspired in such different ways. She is bold, loves color, is not afraid of stripes not only in her jacket but along her walls down the hall. She loves to shop at J. Crew, but loves to mix and match many different looks. She loves restoration hardware, and pottery barn but is not afraid to throw a little spice in the mix with her boho friend and do some  funky wallpaper print. She would have a bright green kitchen if she could with glass jars full of sea shells and sand. She loves the classics linen feels with a pop of color and maybe a bright red sweater pillow. She is adventurous and loves clean with a mix of chaos

 

Have fun this year and really try to bring your personality into your home and really your home should scream your name so make it do so!! I want to see your photos if you end up redecorating to your style. Email them to me and I will post them up on my blog. I would love to see my readers homes and style so fun you could inspire someone else this year too just by sharing!! So send some to me. For all David Clyde design info go check him out here! Also special thanks to the boutique blend in Utah for providing the clothing for me to style. Much love.
