Benishek Inching

Regarding “Benishek No Environmentalist” I agree with Mr. Powell’s letter to the editor/ opinion of Congressman Dan Benishek’s poor environmental record and his penchant for putting corporate interests ahead of his constituents’...

Climate Change Warning

Currently there are three assaults on climate change. The first is on the integrity of the scientists who support human activity in climate change. Second is that humans are not capable of affecting the climate...

Fed Up About Roads

It has gotten to the point where I cringe when I have to drive around this area. There are areas in Traverse City that look like a war zone. When you have to spend more time viewing potholes instead on concentrating on the road, accidents are bound to happen...

Don’t Blame the IRS

I have not heard much about the reason for the IRS getting itself entangled with the scrutiny of certain conservative 501(c) groups (not for profit) seeking tax exemption. Groups seeking tax relief must be organizations that are operated “primarily for the purpose of bringing about civic betterment and social improvements.”

Color Your Closet!

Kristi Kurjan - April 9th, 2012  
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.
