We are in the last weeks of summer and you have two weeks to get in all those travel and fashion plans you promised yourself back at Memorial Day. My two summer resolutions were to figure out how to wear more color and head to the beach.
New Yorkers, especially those in the fashion industry tend to favor an abundance of black in their wardrobes. The summer season is the time to break out every bright color to meet the sun. Don’t worry, you can take baby steps. Also FYI, every store is mega-sale mode right now for summer goodies, even though you still have 2 months of warm weather and long days to go…
Start with your manicure. If that’s still too much commitment, try a “neon-French” manicure. Replace the white with your favorite shades of bright colors on your nail tips. It’s also the easiest “nail art” look for women on-the-go. You can just add more color and more patterns as you get comfortable.
If you can’t do head to toe color, your handbag or jewelry is an easy option. That amazing shade of bright you always thought you couldn’t do? That belongs on your purse. Your statement bag should be an exclamation, not a whisper! My little Rebecca Minkoff mini-mac is my favorite go-to piece.
Shoes are another great way to add accent color. If you can’t get away from having your shoes match your outfit, you can opt for shoes that have some pop color. These rockstar sandals from Alexander McQueen’s McQ line were the perfect choice. If you do “pop” color, do it with a bang.
My second resolution of hitting the beach? I am happy to say I got out to my haunt of Montauk, NY a few times and will also be headed there tomorrow. I squeezed in some time (briefly) in South Beach too between my coverage of Miami Fashion week shows.
The clock is ticking. What do YOU want to accomplish before Labor day?
