Five Fantastic Looks in Time for Spring

Are you ready for winter weather to be gone? Spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to spruce up your wardrobe! Spring means warmer weather and livelier looks, so here’s a list of our top five looks to rock this spring!

Flowing Cozy Skirts

Skirts are a super fun wardrobe addition for the spring! You can choose from all manner of vibrant colors and patterns, as well as lengths and cuts. Skirts combo well with many styles of hair and makeup, and are usually more comfortable to wear than pants. Pick some skirts that match your style and embrace your inner springtime!

Cardigans for Days

Spring can bring with it cool evenings or breezy days. Cardigans are the fashionable way to stay warm and stylish. Long cardigans can help accentuate a long hairstyle, and can tie an entire look together. Try different cardigans to match your style for a cozy way to look great!

Distressed Skinny Jeans

It feels like distressed jeans have always been in style, and it’s for good reason: They look awesome! If the blown out jeans aren’t really your style, skinny jeans of any variety look as good as ever. When picking out skinny jeans for your spring wardrobe, make sure you pick some that have flex to them so they are both comfy and gorgeous!

Rose Gold Locks

While it’s not quite our favorite color ultra violet, “rose gold” is a gorgeous new trend that you can rock this spring! The color is tantalizing, and looks amazing in both long or short hairstyles. Choose a top and accessories to complement the subtly bold color, and you’ll be on top of your game!

The Messiest Braids

Messy braids are one of the neatest, no-fuss looks to rock during the coming spring! It’s simple, low-maintenance, and looks stunning. There are even tons of different braids you can try to keep your look new and fresh!

At The Studio Academy of Beauty, we’ve always loved the color purple. It’s even our owner Cathy‘s favorite color! We have known purple is a powerful, vibrant color all along. This year Pantone (the world-renowned authority on color), has declared ultra violet – a vibrant purple hue, as the “color of the year” and we are all for it.
Ultra violet symbolises the mysteries of the universe, the beauty of the unknown, and believing in our creativity. Now more than ever, we need new ideas, the courage to speak up, the passion to follow dreams, and the endurance to never give up. Sounds a lot like The Studio Academy of Beauty

Why Ultra Violet

This color has been a major influence on brilliant artists for decades. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix incorporated shades of violet into the music industry to showcase their individuality and creative side. However, violet made it’s impact long before western pop culture took over. Throughout centuries, royalty wore violet to symbolize extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic! It’s the type of color we would like to wear everyday.
