If you’re just about to board onto the color-blocking train or have been working your way to those train steps, it would be best if you throw yourself off now or let this one go by. Cause this trend, has gone into overkill territory like the florals all day everyday trend.
I of all people shouldn’t be saying such things, after all blocking those colors up down and all around has been a styling favorite of mine for years now. Years I say, so I know when it’s time to let go of something for awhile, just to make space for something new, the technicolor way of dressing.
The first time I rocked a pleated garment was at the age of five. The fabric was a heavy cotton-polyester blend; the style, overalls; and the place, primary school in Trinidad and Tobago. I rocked the pleats for about seven years straight after my first time, so my relationship with the folds wasn’t one that I have fond memories of. Time heals all wounds, scars and my love hate history with extra fabric. I’ve found some ways to help me bring pleats back into my life so the second time around, pleats can give me happy memories. Let’s see if these ideas might help.
The clothes, jewelry, handbags and makeup aren’t the only bright things to look forward to during spring and summer. Our frames are easy ways to lighting things up, especially if you’re not ready to rock bright-colored or printed garments. A little can go a long way.
