Correction: In our recent article on Alpenfest music, we accidentally printed a photo of country singer Alan Jackson instead of Alpenfest country performer Alan Turner. Express regrets the error.

More Density? Many discussions/debates have been held re: 10-story buildings and increasing the density in Traverse City. I wonder how many people have considered the possibility of Cherry Festival-size crowds and density 365 days a year in Traverse City...

Send Them Packing If [Grand Traverse County Commissioner] Christine Maxbauer had killed or injured a child, would [County Administrator] Tom Menzel continue to make the statement that “this is personal?” Anyone drunk and driving a car at 3pm has made a poor judgement call...

No Raise From reading your recent letter on raising minimum wages to $15 an hour by 2018 you should’ve studied your Economics 101 course a little harder. A business just cannot raise their employees’ wages to $15 an hour and not come up with a way to offset that high of a wage increase...

Color Your Closet!

SPRING 2012 FASHION

Bring on this spring with bright colors.

As the weather warms, add a burst of personality to your closet with brilliant prints, vivid jeans, and bold color-blocked dresses.

Here are just a few ways to have fun with this season’s most wearable fashions.

BRIGHT COLORS

This spring is saturated with color, so, stock up! A few new brightly toned items can vamp up a wardrobe. Think luscious reds, heart-stopping blues, and creamy mint.

Feeling even more adventurous? Go with a high voltage neon.

The hottest shade this season? Two words; Tangerine Tango. This color pops! According to the Pantone Color Institute, this year’s it-color for spring is Tangerine Tango.

Expect to see this glamorous hue in various silhouettes, from a flowing cocktail dress to a mini shoulder strapped handbag. It is flattering to most skin tones and the perfect color to transition from spring to summer.

COLOR-BLOCKING

Bring a burst of energy to a wardrobe with solid staples. It’s called Color-Blocking and is one of the season’s hottest trends. It is loud, bold, intense, and screams spring fashion. Color-blocking consists of mixing solid color combinations, wearing more than one color at once.

The feel is easily created through simple wardrobe staples. Make a statement with an electric pop of teal, purple, red, and yellow. Throw on a solid pink top with a pair of red pants or a mint blazer belted with a pleated orange skirt. The idea is simple yet refined.

To avoid looking like a rainbow, stick to a combination of three colors or less. Extend the possibilities by mixing and matching items to create different variations. Top it off by throwing on a pair of heels or chic pair of sunglasses.
