Can’t wait to incorporate Fashion Week trends into your wardrobe? No need to wait until Spring when our ModStylists are here to help, now! They’ll show you how to style electric cobalt and black licorice color pairings as inspired by select styles from BCBG Max Azria‘s and Sachin and Babi‘s Spring 2012 collections, which recently debuted in NYC.

Tip #1: The simplest way to style Spring or Summer pieces during cooler seasons is by adding a pair of sheer tights and a cropped jacket. Let this be your transitional wardrobe mantra as you proceed with your own fashion-forward weeks throughout autumn!

Tip #2: A foolproof way to embrace fresh-from-the-runway trends is by pinpointing a special something you adore. Focus on broad ideas like color scheming, layering textures, or unique prints as outfit focal points, then work in accessories that emphasize them.

Tip #3: For daytime wear, offset neons or brights with earthy browns. Mandy’s Pudding Pie Bag and Amy’s Here Kitty Kitty Heel are great examples of how to tone down without losing what packs a punch.


Mandy embraces black-and-blue pairings in the Blooms of Barcelona Dress, Co-boot Blue Heel, Edge-ucation Bracelet, Onyx and Off Earrings, and Pudding Pie Bag.

Will you try this color combo?

    That’s so funny. I’m just now reading this, and this morning I put on an outfit almost exactly like Amy’s. 😀

      I mean, I put on the outfit before I read it.
