A New Year & A New You

Having fun with the 2021 Pantone Colors of the Year

It’s that time of year where we can “begin again.”  There is something refreshing about making a new start.

What we’ve learned over the years is how much one’s attitude can impact our behavior.  The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for the day.  At the start of this New Year, we can ask ourselves, “Can I be open to new colors & style ideas this new year?”  Now is a great time to be positive and grateful for what you have, while seeking new ways of pushing yourself and trying new things.

A customer recently came up to us and said, “I am so tired of wearing black all of the time, but I don’t know how to bring color into my wardrobe.  How can I change in the New Year?”  So, we shared with her the Pantone Colors for 2021, “Illuminating” a yellow color (think lemons) that would bring a smile to any persons face and “Ultimate Gray” a deep tone that goes well with bright yellow!

The good news was that our customer already has the attitude of being open to trying new things.  The way we dress, and look reflects our attitude and how we are choosing to show up in the world.  We suggested she experiment with new clothing colors, jewelry and accessories to complement her desired look.  She mentioned she wanted to integrate gray & blue tones into her wardrobe.

The jewelry pieces we suggested were labradorite earrings, bracelet or necklace and citrine colored pieces.  Our citrine crystal lever back earrings caught her eye and she paired them with our labradorite bead long necklace.    

We thought a gray or blue sweater would be a good first staple to add.  Adding a gray tone scarf to a black or grey top is another easy way to add color.  We showed her our cotton grey and white scarf which she fell in love with and purchased.  Putting on a gemstone necklace, ring, earrings, or bracelet can also brighten one’s look. 

What was great is she left filled with ideas on how to create a new look for herself with the new 2021 Pantone colors of the year!  We wanted to share this with you so you too can do the same.  With an open mind, try new colors, jewelry and accessory combinations that might work for you.  And if you have any questions, we’re here to assist with style tips either by email or with a virtual shopping appointment.  Contact meyla@beksandesigns.com to learn more.
