Fashion in Color…

Every season Pantone publishes a new color pallet for the upcoming fashion cycle. This fashion by Pamella Protzel-Scott incorporates the color Lemon Zest for a cheerful, western sunshine inspired look. Don’t you just loveeeee it?!! I would wear it (with leggings, of course)! Would you?

Is there a color that complements all skin tones?
I tend to lean towards bolder, deeper hues and neutral shades. I think that Navy Blue is a color that works on all skin tones.

Fashion designers put so much thought behind their clothing, it’s almost like a form of artwork. But where does fashion fit into the life of a believer?

I Peter 3:3-4 says, “Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”

Uh oh! Does this mean we shouldn’t care about fashion?

Absolutely NOT!

The verse doesn’t say that we can’t wear gold jewelry or beautiful clothing. It says we cannot ADORN ourselves with those things.

Our adornment should be worn in our heart with beauty and grace. We can wear fancy clothes and diamond rings… we just can’t find our beauty in those things. Our worth comes from God. It should be our number one goal to fashion our inner lives with beauty and grace and then we can enjoy dressing up the outside! It just can’t be our priority!

What fashion used to look like…

My favorite fashion site, Modcloth, puts a modern twist on vintage fashions. For their Holiday catalog, they did a little research on vintage fashion catalogs to put together their very own! It’s fun to look at the process and see how the elements of fabric, colors, and even word choices can play a part in creating the perfect look!
