Fashion Do's for 2014

Good Morning, 

I thought it might be fun to take a look at what the Fashion Industry thinks is cool this year.

This year's must have Fashion Color is a faux pas!  Raidiant Orchid 18-3224 (Pantone Color System).

Orchids are a beautiful flower, however wearing the color tends to make one look jaundiced (yellow).  A gorgeous color, it should be kept to small accessory items, Hair-clips or ribbons, perhaps a dash color in an outfit as a accent, but never as the main focus color.  Or you could always go as a great big grape.

Accenting this color is not terribly difficult, but if done wrong you may have a color clash to end all color clashes.  Here is a lovely little color block that will help you choose the right accent color or accessories to go with your new fashion statement.

You can jazz up your wardrobe with an easy accessory and no commitment to a bold, bright color.  Try these simple everyday items.

How about a lovely Hair Accessory

Other ideas:

Amethyst Crystal or Gemstone Jewelry to match.
Never underestimate the power of pennies!  This years fashion color is next years Junk Drawer item, you do not have to spend a lot to be part of the in-crowd.  Dime Store finds can be just the right thing to finish off your look, and no one needs know it was only $1.00.

Less is more!  I can not stress this enough.  Do not clad yourself in purple from head to toe, select an item, like your dress.  Now start to adding pieces to create your outfit, a necklace in perhaps a matching tone or one to two shades darker or lighter than your main attire.  Shoes should always be simple and elegant, even a pair of flip-flops with the right skirt can be very becoming.  (Mind you, I live in my Chuck Taylor's so I don't nothing 'bout no shoes).

Don't forget to add a bit of shiny, earrings can be a crystal or gemstone beads that catch the light, a bit of bling on your wrist for a pretty spark in the sunlight.  Clear quartz crystal is always  eye-catching and never clashes.

We hope you have enjoyed thinking about what you might wear  or create this year using this color.  Happy Designing.

Thank you for coming in and having a look.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
