"THE" Colors of the Season
The colors of the season
We all know that every year the fashion community comes out with there projected trending colors for that season based on the runway shows – whether we buy into this or not we’re all affected by it one way or another. We can always see how stores start carrying more of a certain color or select group of color choices based on what the “fashion elites” have deemed “THE” color of that time. We look around and see more and more people wearing this color and soon enough we subconsciously, without thinking too intently about it, buy an item in that color and end up being a part of the trend. This is a cycle that happens all of the time, everywhere, from the most fashionable people to the ones that don’t really care to be up on the trends – the” color” somehow makes its way everywhere.
Well, we’re here to show you our colors of the season – sage and pink.
This may seem like an odd combo but trust us it works, and it works well! At first, we didn’t even notice the trend until we received multiple shipments and put the items on the floor. Then, we looked around and saw that the entire New Arrivals section of LaBella had one color scheme going on. With items from multiple designers, with vastly different styles and target audiences, they all happened to go together, and ultimately form a cohesive collection, all with tones of sage and pink to bind them.
Camo is a good example of the sage green component of this pair. Camo is a color known to be associated with a manly or masculine nature – for hunting or a part of the military. Juxtaposing that with pink, the most notorious color for a girl or femininity. Even before babies are born, people pick out baby shower gifts knowing a baby girl is on the way, and almost always they are a shade of pink. Now couple those to seemingly opposites choices together and what do you get? You get a look that is trendy, a look that is fashionable, a look that some might even call empowering – this is why when we looked around and saw this trend all around us, we knew we needed to share it with all of you.
Here are the outfits we styled to show you just how chic this combination is.
