Mix Those NEUTRALS From Past Seasons With Spring/Summer 2012's TRENDS

Don't let those neutral clothing items from 2010 and 2011 go to waste.  Mix them up with new or old pastels, to give them an up-to-date look and keep it current with one of this season's hottest trends.  You probably have skirts and/or pants in cream, taupe, light gray or white.  Those would look great with pastels, especially when layered with simple silhouettes and color-blocked.  My favorite inspiration for this look is 
3.1 Phillip Lim.

Prints in florals, ikat, paisley and stripes would also work well with neutral clothing items from seasons' past.  Pair it with existing white bottoms and get a crisp, new look.  Pair those prints with solid neutrals to tone down the runway looks into doable street looks.  Also, with this season's Neon trend, nothing goes better with neon than beige or ecru.  It makes the 80's trend modern and very "now."

Don't let those neutral blazers hide in the back of your closet.  Bring them out and pair them with this season's trends.  Not only will it keep you warm from those breezy nights, it will also give your outfit a pulled-together look.

I'm all for donating and recycling, but before you give your threads away, see if you can pair it with your current buys and give it a new and current look.  Why don't you recycle it in your closet first before you give it the final goodbye ;-)
