8 Fredericksburg Parent and Family • April 2019 Let's celebrate my one-year anniversary writing this style column with vibrant color, tie dye, pattern, fringe and polka dots! Or, basically, the entire spring 2019 style forecast. Grab your Pantone chart…there are some beautiful and fun colors and trends this season. WRITTEN BY LORRAINE SERBINSKI Style Standouts Spring Trends: Grab your anorak jacket to hit the "U lity" trend for spring. This jacket is from Target, Cape Juby back pack, KanCan jeans, American Eagle top and Crown Vintage boo es from DSW. I'm not a lover of polka dots (except for my favor- ite pair of wedges) but if you are…now is the time! They're fun, playful and fit into the spring vibe. Florals are also back and that's a pattern that is all me. Check out Yumi Kim's designs; she's my absolute favorite designer for fun colorful florals. Polka Dots and Patterns I'm loving Pantone's spring collection of vibrant colors that are not the typical pastels. There is a big emphasis on Yellow (Aspen Gold), but colors like Pink Peacock, Pepper Stem, Living Coral and Princess Blue make their brilliant arrival. Grab an item in any of its 16 spring colors and you are already win- ning spring. Pantone Colors Try cargo skinnies or anorak- style jackets and vests (jackets with drawstrings and exposed pockets). This could also be translated into accessories—try a cute functional backpack with buckles and straps. Utility Right: Go bold for spring. Jacket is Michael Kors from TJMaxx, Forever 21 skirt, Stella and Dot bag and Lucky brand wedges. H&M jacket, Kimichi Blue dress, Sam Edelman sandals. My polka dot go-to's - Lucky Brand wedges from ThredUP. rain in style
