With the first day of spring having sprung, and that extra hour of evening light since the time change, it feels like winters icy grip has started to loosen. Not a moment too soon if you ask me (or presumably anyone else who’s been on the Eastern seaboard this season). Before long, the ground will be bursting with crocuses, cherry blossoms will grace the tress and monarch butterflies will return from vacationing in Mexico.
Ok, ok, I might be getting a little ahead of myself. What can I say? Spring is exciting. One of my favorite parts of the season is that people start wearing more colors again, as if in an attempt to mirror nature, or perhaps to coax it out of hiding.
If the Spring 2011 New York Fashion Week is any indication, bold colors and bright hues are going to be really hot this year – oranges, pinks and electric blues showed up frequently, offset by dazzling whites.
While it may still feel too cold and gloomy to skip off to the park in a pink sundress, you can kickstart the season with some colorful jewels that’ll take you all the way into fall. I love this pair of vibrant purple amethyst studs and this citrine ring (it’s like a bouquet of daisies on your finger!). If you want to go super-colorful, check out this multi-gemstone cocktail ring. With topaz, peridot and amethyst it flashes, it dazzles, it catches that Spring sunlight and makes you smile.
What ever your style might be, now is the perfect time to start getting into the swing of things for this Spring.
