Report In Summer Colors | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Welcome to my Friday Fashion episode.
Which of the 2017 Pantone colors do you like to wear this summer? Primrose Yellow, Pink Yarrow, Flame, Lapis Blue or Hazelnut? These bright and bold colors will completely put you in a bright light and finally leave out the winter hibernation behind.

Soft colors, neutrals and dusty colors, Bohemian patterns and crochet garments paraded on all runways this year. It was all about the ‘70s revisited and how to wear old ideas, such as bell bottom pants in a new way. Crochet is in the spot light this year, as the new texture and even though it is an ancient art, only a few people today know how to master it. New crochet garments are versatile, feminine, wearable for many occasions, romantic and chic, as they soften the look and hide parts of the body we don’t want to show. I particularly have become attached to dusters and shoulder wraps and I have made a big production for my online Etsy store, all sold out. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ValentinaExpressions

Colors speak about you. Let’s say you create an outfit with Lapis Blue, Primrose Yellow and Hazelnut, what do these colors say about you?
Lapis Blue is linked with positivity, calmness, loyalty and peace, indicates that you’re a trustworthy person.
Primrose Yellow is a sunny, energetic, vibrant and happy color.  Not many people feel confident in yellow. I heard a few people saying yellow makes the face look like yellow jaundice. Yellow tells others that you’re confident and like to receive attention. It’s very welcoming.
Tan – show that you’re down to earth, as all the variations of brown do. It tells you are emotionally stable, grounded, dependable, trustworthy and honest.


Here is my composition of an outfit you can wear this summer using these colors. Basically, I am suggesting a couple of ways to wear this outfit and a great way to cut the clutter in the wardrobe. With one beige pants, you can wear the tank top belted or not, or in alternative with a dressier shirt. Dress the outfit up or down with peep toe shoe or loafer, with or without the crochet jacket, or a longer crochet duster. The blue bag matches the blue jewelry.
This ensemble is perfect for work or for a day of shopping. (Click on the photo to view it larger).

Look sharp even when is hot, but keep in mind your skin tone. If your hair is brown, dark brown, or red and your skin has a warm tone, choose all the warm colors including red, yellow and orange. If your hair is blonde, black, or ash and your skin is light, or pinkish, choose al the cool tone colors including blue, green and purple. Look sharp even when is hot. Ciao,
Valentina

      Hi Paula,
      Yellow with blue will certainly go with your purple hair. This year, Sky Blue tones are a big thing. Pantone calls it Island Paradise. It will match well with your purple hair. I had that temptation too, but I never had the courage to dye my hair purple. I found strings of hair in different colors on a clip and that’s what I use to be extravagant.
