SPRING FLORAL EXCITEMENT
We would be remiss if the calendar says spring and we never discussed florals. Although nice weather reigns all year long here in our home base of Naples, Florida, we know our friends up north are celebrating the turn of seasons to warmer times. We delve into that annual rite of spring fashion known as florals with that thought. Whether you're looking for that adorable, True Fashionista dress for a backyard party or pretty spring décor for your home, we've lined up some ideas with which to greet warmer times, much of it found right now at True Fashionistas, Southwest Florida's largest designer resale and consignment store.
SPRING FLORAL EXCITEMENT – COLOR TRENDS
Courtesy of Urbanstems.com comes some advice on the season's hottest floral colors. Rich, vibrant hues play a major role for spring 2022. Although there's still room in the palette for lighter, more neutral tones, livelier colors take center stage. Among the most popular choices are warm colors with a jolt of True Fashionista vitality — think tropical tones that evoke visions of sun-drenched afternoons at the beach with waves gently breaking against the shoreline, or a festive poolside cocktail topped with an umbrella in hand. Rich oranges tinged with yellow, deep pinks, and lavish golds are strong representations in this season's floral color palette.
Conversely, cooler hues to capture a sense of serenity are also on the radar for spring floral colors, indicates Urbanstems. Airy blues provide the perfect moment backdrop for the relaxation and tranquility they bring. Equally eye-catching are deep, earthy True Fashionista greens inspired by spring vegetation. These shades channel some natural optimism, providing excellent balance for the year's more vibrant color options.
Nestled among these offerings, neutrals remain an option this year, pairing beautifully with the above tones. Soft ivories and buttery shades offer signature comfort to any arrangement. Now that we know the colors, let's check out who's using them, including what you can discover at True Fashionistas, Naples' best consignment store.
