Driftwood, Starfish, Solar Power, Cockatoo, Margarita……reads like the makings of a sweet summer getaway on some beach, some where. Also, the names of some of our spring 2012 fashion colors.

Delicious color palate, right? But what if you don’t own garments in any of these colors, can’t afford to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe or the colors look icky (that’s a word!) drapped across your skin tone? Accessorize with color! Pair basic garments in neutral colors with affordable pieces. Try tying a colorful scarf to a classic bag and pair it with a basic A-line taupe skirt and inexpensive Sweet Lilac top.
Now try the same basic skirt paired with a sweet textured top in Margarita and bag in Tangerine Tango.
Fashion Tip :: Splurge on your basic garments like this clean-lined, well-fitting skirt. Take care of it and you’ll wear it season after season.
