Istanbul Style Watch – Pop Colors (Part Deux)

Istanbul, Turkey

 

Istanbul is still negotiating with spring for warmer weather, but the Istanbullu are taking their cue from Mother Nature who is starting to show signs of what is to come. The city is full of blooming Judas trees and their purple flowers are popping against all the usual green ones.

We’re still bundled up in our winter coats, but now we’re still lovingly adding pops of color to help us get in the mood for spring. Pinks, greens, reds all add a sassy bit of life to our otherwise neutral palette.  All over Istanbul people are popping one or more things in their outfits. From hand warmers to shirt sleeves to flirty skirts we’ve got it going on with hits of color. Everyone wants a little spring and everyone wants a little pop of color. It’s up to you to decide how. Boys like pop-color sneakers, ladies like their shoes or bags to pop, even grandfathers get in on the act with sleeves that go pop pop. Everyone wants the bright colors of spring.

As the weather gets warmer I am predicting more and more color combinations. Brights will be paired with brights, muted colors will be paired with muted colors and the really daring will pair bright and muted colors. We’re not shrinking violets when it comes to color here – we love our violets and our mauves and all the colors under the bright yellow sun.

(Really, spring we want you!)
