Oh it's happening. Spring 2018 is upon us and that means new colors to introduce into your wardrobe. Introduce? Meaning I don't already have them in there? Indeed. While it's possible you have a few of these beauties floating around. It's likely that you don't have many, whether or not you love them, simply because we haven't seen this color palette in a while. And it's not surprising. Fashion and style are combatting tough times with playful, happy pieces to help us wake up, smile and fight the good fight. 

As a personal stylist for women, I'm always reminding clients that just because you don't think a color is flattering, doesn't mean you can't wear it. So let's dive into the colors of the season and the next post will focus on how to wear them. Off we go!

 Last but certainly not least, let's hear it for this suede skirt that you are sure to keep for years. This style works easily for any woman who doesn't carry her weight in her stomach. But, if you love it and you DO carry your weight in your stomach. Add a heel, shaper and an eye catching top to pull it all together. I like a print long sleeve silk top with a neck tie as a start.  Siobhan Molloy Lashes Tangerine Calf Suede Skirt. Wolf & Badger. Was: $524. Now: $262.
