    Spring & Summer Colors
    http://www.artfulwears.com

    Every year, I am always anxious to see what colors are HOT for Spring & Summer. So now that we have seen all the Spring & Summer collections, I would like to let you know that bright, rich saturated colors are in style. Think oranges, pinks, greens, and blues.

    Gray continues to be the neutral du jour. Gray is hotter than white, black, and brown. You will see it paired with absolutely every color for Spring and Summer. Keep this in mind as you start your shopping.
