Personal Style: Citrus Hues

www.stilettosandsubstance.comSpring brights aren’t just for colour blocking – they can also be incorporated into a monochromatic ensemble for an understated take on colourful dressing. Here, bright citrus hues like lime and yellow are paired with monochromatic black and white for a fresh take on trans-seasonal spring dressing.

This whimsical look was styled around a pair of patterned statement tights. Their intricate pattern attracts the eye and gives the look visual interest, and the lime green accents inspired the outfit’s colour palette.

A lightweight cover-up such as a blazer is a great option for trans-seasonal layering. This white blazer compliments the freshness of the outfit’s lime green elements, and its texture keeps things interesting. The yellow printed blouse underneath gives a complimentary pop of colour and is buttoned up all the way and tucked into the black skirt for a prim and proper feel.

Midi heel shoes are a great option for spring if you like your shoes to be comfortable and wearable.  These lime green suede heels provide a good amount of height but are also comfy enough to walk around in for long periods of time. A quirky chocolate bar bag provides the finishing touch to this whimsical and colourful look.
