If y’all haven’t noticed, I love following all sorts of trends from season to season. From cold shoulder to distressed denim, I love a good movement. The fun thing about fashion forecasting is that it encourages me to step outside of my comfort zone, style-wise. For example, today I’m giving a new color a whirl! Check out how I create a fresh, springtime look with serenity blue.
a soft approach
As a fashionista, I would describe my style as bold, funky, and street chic. Not exactly the words that come to mind when I think of serenity blue. With its calming aura and soft pastel color family, this hue is nowhere to be found in my closet. That is, until now. I enjoy a good challenge, and I’m always looking to expand my style options. So, I decided to take this popular shade under my wing.
First, my goal was to find a serenity blue piece that wasn’t too far from my style. This Eyeshadow top was the perfect candidate. With a crochet yoke and flowy fit, it blends well with my tendency toward boho-inspired pieces. Next, I highlighted the easygoing feel of this top with equally playful accompaniments. The light wash of these super soft plus size YMI luxe skinny jeans balances alongside glittery Vans, adding street chic elements to my look.
For me, half the fun of trying out a trending color or silhouette is showing it off to my friends. After all, talking about your latest fashion foray is a great conversation starter. With an outfit this versatile, I could easily debut it at a casual brunch, a park picnic, or even bingo night (one of my favorite ways to get together).
Let the newness continue through your accessories! My favorite options for this outfit include a standout statement necklace like this bib style from Hannah, and this crisp Nine West satchel for a touch of structure. Just like that, serenity blue is easing its way right into my heart! For additional shades of blue that you need to have in your closet, browse through our spring and summer offerings.
