I cannot tell you how excited I was a few months ago to read that earth tone colors were on trend for Spring 2019 fashion! This is why you have seen so many browns around the stores recently. I have always preferred earth tones to pastels…though pastels can be refreshing and very springlike! These are my kind of colors and I truly love them. But, last Saturday we got an example of how some of you don’t like (in fact hate) earth tones, when there were comments about the brown striped dress indicating a distaste for browns and other earth tones. (Prison-wear? Seriously?) You might call this outfit I am wearing drab…but I call it CONFIDENT. This is my happy place and though I do wear other colors, earth tones have always been my favorites.
Isn’t it great when you know what your best colors are? I was so thankful when a “color specialist” told me that black was actually one of the colors I look best in…I knew I loved it! And I am glad that there are some of you who know for a fact that you do not like these colors….just don’t put the rest of down when we are in the earth tone category! This is a great spring outfit for me. The fabrics are light and cool, and the colors suit me best. All of these pieces have been in my wardrobe for a while, but here is the information:
Black Cardigan with pockets – JJill
Green pants, rust sleeveless tunic – Eileen Fisher from Dillards
Necklace – Chicos
Bronze ballet flats – Cole Haan from Dillards
