Spring is for color

Posted By on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 5:34 PM


Have you noticed the emergence of bright colors popping up in all the stores lately? That's right — I'm excited, too.

This spring, it's all about color: from pastels and sherbets to bright yellow and the color of the season, Tangerine. We went out to SouthPark Mall to get the expert opinion of Arlene Goldstein, VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction at Belk and to get caught up on what we can look forward to seeing from them this season.

Beautiful, vivid colors tops the list, and it is clearly a style statement. In so many ways, the color palettes made me feel quite girly and "lovely," which is exactly the feeling Belk wants its shoppers to have as they search for pieces to add to their spring wardrobe. All of the hip and trendy girls this season will surely have a pair of colored jeans or pants.


This is a huge "must-have" and looks fabulous paired with contracting colors in tops and shoes. We saw silhouettes with feminine details like shirts with ruffles, skirts bearing perfect pleats, even floral prints and stripes. And when it comes to the trend of hemlines this Spring, Goldstein says we "can expect to see it all. Shorter hemlines as well as middi- and maxi - lengths."

Having choices and options are always great for those of you who may not be completely comfortable wearing a mini dress or skirt, and for the ladies who can't easily rock a long frock, the midi-length is right up your alley. Looks like Belk will be one of the first stops on my list of places to shop this season. How about you?
