My formula for this upcoming spring season is building my wardrobe around colorful detail pieces which explains the multicolored safari jacket I am featuring in this ensemble. What I love most about this jacket is its structure, and its not-so-overwhelming accommodation of colors.
I know it may seem so early 2000's, but for this outfit, I wanted to coordinate every piece according to all the colors that are displayed on the jacket; the burgundy's, the blues, the yellows, and the browns. As most know, I am a very simplistic man when it comes to my personal style. When I get dressed, I usually work with one or two elementary colors because I prefer when my looks are cohesive. Judging from the way I styled this look, I will admit that this particular outfit is more than simple and I am satisfied with this change. I mean, spring is all about making the most of unexpected colors, prints and patterns. Do not be afraid to switch up your styling formula. I am usually not a person of much color so I can relate to anyone who is a little hesitant on the subject. If you are someone who wants to play it safe, why don't you start with including at least one pop of color in all of your outfits this spring? See how that works.
What I love about the spring is the platform it gives for versatility when it comes to personal style. You can never go wrong with any clothing pieces in this season, and for me, this is when I am able to experiment with more colors and patterns than ever before. Spring is almost here and, I am so excited to be leaving the freezing cold behind in New York City.
Are you excited for Spring? What are your Spring 2015 resolutions? How do you think I did with the way I styled this outfit ? Is it a lot of color for you or is it just the right amount? Let me know in the comments below.
