A Splash of Color

A Splash of Color: Playing Around with Hues of Aquamarine

This spring, bright colors are trending hot on the fashion radar and you must embrace an energetic pop of color to subdue the heat and achieve a delightfully breezy look. Designers have splashed sea blue and green all over their collections. These shades are so perfectly on-point for spending a luxurious day at the beach.

An Energetic Appeal

On days when you are struggling with bad hair, an undoable spell of lethargy, puffy eyes, or a lack of radiance due to the late night wine tasting with the girls, it is vibrant colors like blues and greens that rescue our style statement for the day. They add a delightfully energetic appeal to our profile and exude alluring vibes that compel the heads to turn as soon as we walk down the street.

Prosperina, the Goddess of Spring

This aquamarine inspired Roberto Cavalli number is the perfect dress to welcome the onset of spring, and bid goodbye to the layering that we all get used to after the long cold months of winter. Its above-the-knee length allows you to ravish your inner goddess and flaunt those gorgeously curvy legs. After all, isn’t spring all about flaunting your curves to the hilt with dresses with minimum fabric and lesser drama?

It’s ruched up neckline is low enough to give you ample opportunity to flaunt those tantalizing beauty bones, and modest enough to make this outfit sensually provocative and femininely romantic. Don’t we women get bored of outfits that bring out our tougher and bolder sides, particularly after all the pantsuits we flaunt at work? Well, this dress is a good pick for all those who want to revel in the beauty of their femininity.

A Pool Side Affair

Heading off to a splash party at the beach? Or perhaps a pool-side affair where you want to show off those curves and command the attention? Paired with these insanely and irresistibly voguish white rockstud Louboutins, this look is just what you need to stun the crowds.

I love this look because it is so effortless, and one can strike all the right chords of glamour without pairing up more than two items! All you need is this breezy Roberto Cavalli aquamarine dress, and these treasure-worthy Louboutins and voila! You can look and feel like Prosperina, the Goddess of Spring herself.

And that my friends, is the splendor of dressing up in spring. If you play your style cards right, pick out the right bright hues that complement your beauty, and flaunt them with a bold aplomb, you can pull off twirl-worthy moments anywhere and everywhere. For instance, you can flaunt this look at countless occasions; a casual BBQ with friends and family, an outdoor brunch, beachside fiestas, club-hopping sprees, a foreign getaway, or even a casual lunch with your girls.

Oh, and I must say, if there’s a boy that you’ve been trying to woo without making it obvious. Then my dear girl, this is just the look that you ought to flaunt! It requires minimal accessorizing because its striking color palette is already so dramatic, you can go right ahead without worrying about adding up the bling.
