Spring '11 Trends: Coral

In my humble opinion, the easiest and fastest way to incorporate Spring trends into your wardrobe is through THE color of the season.

For Spring 2011, it is all about the color coral.

How I love the color coral...let me count the ways. 

For starters, it is a hue that can be flattering on skin tones of all types.  If your skin tone is more cool, then pick a coral that is closer to pink.  If you are more of a warm tone, then an orange shade is your coral of choice.

Coral is also the perfect complement to some of my other favorite colors: hot pink, teal, navy and gold.  Is there anything more beautiful than a coral stone trimmed in gold?  Or a coral sundress with turquoise beads?  Of course not.

For instant gratification, add a coral blouse, necklace or scarf when the weather is more chilly.  Switch to coral sundresses and sandals when the weather turns warmer.

And for that in-between weather that seems to linger too long, this canvas peacoat from Old Navy will be the perfect pop of coral you need to get you through.  (Bonus...it's only $45)

If the color coral is not your thing, try it in your accessories or cosmetics.  A coral handbag and manicure is equally chic yet neutral to work back to the other items in your closet.  And this is how you know coral has officially arrived..the World's Most Amazing Belt is also available in coral.  Tah-dah!
