Bold and bright is back, baby!
This spring think pink, yellow and blues for tops and bottoms. Colored jeans are moving into all the best boutiques and wardrobes and are being paired with, get this, more bright colors.
Often referred to as color blocking, matching bright colors on top and bottom is making waves this spring and moving into the summer lineup, said Connor Giws, assistant manager at Urban Blues, a local clothing boutique that offers designer clothes in an extremely discounted fashion.
“This spring we’re seeing all different colors of jeans. From light, tan colors to bright reds and blues it’s really a trend we’re starting to see explode,” Giws said.
A three-quarter-length sleeve Raglan Henley shirt that ranges in size for men and women has been flying off the shelves, he said.
The bright-colors trend extends to swimwear and underwear as designers ready their upcoming summer line. With Pride around the corner, there’s no excuse to start getting in shape to fit into that cute swimsuit or box-cut brief.
“We’re seeing a lot of plaid and other textures in underwear this spring,” said Dale LeBaron, owner of Spark/Cockers. “And that’s not just from one designer, that’s something everyone is doing.”
The plaid briefs and swimwear to start an outfit is the perfect building block to add bright colors on top and strut your stuff at Pride, the pool, the club or the beach. Whatever styles you’re looking for, be sure to check out Spark/Cockers, 629 S. State St., which co-sponsored the QSaltLake Spring Fashion photo shoot.
