Daffodils littered the streets, flower beds, botanical gardens, vases with shallow bases – yellow is the colour of Easter. But in the aftermath of Easter weekend (purple foil wrappers everywhere, a constant sinking feeling of ‘how many eggs have I eaten?’) one must now start questioning – what are the colours of Spring?
For me, its pink and orange. Both together and apart.
I’ve always been intrigued by how bright colours work together. And while yellow is the brightest of them all, it doesn’t always play fair with other colours. However, pink and orange reign bright and make the perfect team.
As April takes off and one hopes the sun shall start appearing more, it’s time to start thinking of ways these colours can work, and where?
This Easter weekend, I brought my anti-neutral style to the anything-but-neutral city of London. There is something about London that makes me want to do something personally unprecedented. This weekend was bold stripes, bold colours, and bold makeup to match.
In short: I sacrificed convention and Easter tradition in the name of pink and orange stripes. I even wore barely-there heels in a distancing from my comfy footwear philosophy.
There are too many colour recommendations I could make for the hot months of 2018, but I would be writing all day. What I am doing in lieu of this is plucking out my two favourites that will play fair and are accessible in volume across both high street and luxury style.
Stay tuned to Josie Marie for more pink and orange combos.
I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend,
Josie Marie xo
