I’m always on the lookout for the newest emerging fashion trends and the forecast is all about whimsical, candy inspired rainbow plaids, stripes, polka dots and prints—they look fresh, fun, optimistic, happy and who doesn’t need a llttle bit of that in their life?

Rainbow Inspiration

Candy brights look gorgeous against crisp spring whites and the beautiful blue of of the sea. 


This is one fashion trend that is going to be so dramatic on it’s own–it only needs the simplest of accessories….straw hats and bags are easy neutrals that don’t compete with our vibrant rainbow colors. It’s also great to choose solid accessories that pull out the colors of your specific rainbow pattern for shoes and bracelets. 

If you want to double down on your rainbows, you can find an accessory that also has a bit of rainbow inspiration in it as well–just don’t overdo it.

Personally, I can’t wait for Spring 2018 to wear my rainbows–that’s too far away for this fashionista…we still have the summer days of August to pull it off before everyone finds out about the hottest trend for next spring!
