Say what you will about Kim Kardashian and her Kanye-era style choices, the hottie has most definitely been spot on with the color trends. Before you get worked up because we mentioned trendsetting and Kim K. in the same sentence, we’re going to ease you into the evidence by showing some of our favorite spring color trends through the eyes of North’s momma.
Kim has always been big on femininity, so there’s no question as to why she looks good in blush tones. Kim started wearing pink, peach, and mauve tones when she went blonde. And as a former blonde, I can assure you her hair color was a big reason she gravitated toward those colors. These tones look great paired in a monochromatic, matchy-matchy way, but try breaking it up with bold accessories.
Some say when Kanye is photographed with Kim, he looks blue, but it’s Kim who’s been looking a little gray, and we love it. Gray is another one of those neutrals that can soften up an outfit of bold colors, complement soft hues, or be worn monochromatically. Different shades of gray can be worn in one look, giving an ensemble depth and dimension. All black everything is so last season. Lighten up and go gray.
Though she’s never claimed angel status, Kim loves her white—a (non) color that’s always on trend for LA and Miami residents. She’s done stark white, which looks great on tanned skin. Kim’s also done an updated version of the trend, paired with off-white and beige, which is flattering on most skin tones. White is another great color to go matchy-matchy with. Try to have your pieces match as closely as possible. Otherwise, your look can come off sloppy. Because this is such a neutral look, adding a statement piece like a stand-out jacket or eye-catching lipstick wins. A bright white is a classic, but the fresh off-white look gives a nod to the fact that you’re no angel either, baby.
The Style department at Urban Romance Online has a request: put any negative feelings about Kim aside (or flip your hair and smile if you love her) and indulge in these sophisticated, ultra-cool colors of the season.
