Accessorize with Pantone’s Top Fashion Colors for Spring

From Poppy Red to Monaco Blue, get decked out in the season's hottest hues

The return to bright colors is the best part of spring – besides the warm weather, of course. And thanks to the color authority (also known as Pantone) we have a little easy-to-use guide that’s like our pocket-sized spring-trend guru. But if all-out color isn’t your thing, you can still stay true to your inner fashionista with a statement bauble in the season’s hottest hues. Try out any of these candy-colored pieces with everything from jeans and a tee to an LBD, then sit back and soak up the sartorial praise.

“Hair Up or Down?” (The Earring Dilemma)

No matter how amazing a pair of earrings may be, they certainly won’t pop to their fullest potential until a serious question – a question every girl must face – is answered: Hair up or down?

Hair Down: Opt for a wider, chandelier-esque style – it won’t get lost against your strands.

Hair Up: Choose a streamlined drop pair to achieve a clean, striking effect.

Our Amrita Singh Boutique opens Wednesday, November 28, at 3PM ET.

Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week’s Boutiques

 

From putting off laundry day to flowers even I am not capable of killing, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. Maggie by Magaschoni cashmere dress. Staying comfy-casual has always been my preferred code of dress (we’re talking since before first steps were taken), and this cashmere number totally counts as looking smartly put-together, while feeling entirely lounge-y. Our Maggie by Magaschoni Boutique opens Monday, October 22, at 11AM ET.

2. NDI Florals bouquet. “Taking care of living creatures” may not top the list of things I’m fantastic at, so these faux florals are just the bouquet for me. Our NDI Florals Boutique opens Thursday, October 25, at 11AM ET.

3. Brookstone® earbuds. My surest of travel companions this holiday season? Screaming babies. Loads of them. While these surround-sound earbuds were specifically engineered to protect my eardrums, it’s safe to say they’ll be preserving my sanity, too. Our Brookstone® Boutique opens Tuesday, October 23, at 11AM ET.

4. Amrita Singh necklace. Bib necklaces will forever set my heart racing. Same with mixed-media. Perhaps a just-in-case medic should be on the scene when this glorious piece arrives? Our Add Some Spice: Hues with Heat Boutique opens Saturday, October 27, at 11AM ET.

5. Honeydew Intimates boyshorts. There’s no better way to put off laundry day than by buying new underthings. Our Honeydew Intimates Boutique opens Thursday, October 25, at 11AM ET.
