WWRZD: Spring’s Color Pallet

April 6, 2011

New Prints for Spring! Yes, that phrase deserves an exclamation mark.

In this monthly installment of WWRZD (What would Rachel Zoe Do?) the fashion know-all/style guru Rachel Zoe answers a very relevant question, what colors/prints to wear this Spring?

It’s hard to believe that it is already fact it has been for a few weeks already. But if you’re anything like me, there’s a chance that you haven’t gone Spring shopping yet. I’m actually ashamed to say that I haven’t even read April’s issue of Vogue (swamped with work..I know, I know, never an excuse), so I’m a bit unprepared to spice up my wardrobe for warm weather.

After being stuck in black and gray all winter, I’m excited to introduce some color. Yes, black is still my go-to color and my closet is 95% black (mixed with gray) and my daily uniform usually consists of black or brown leggings, equestrian/moto boots and long knit tops. But, I’m ready for some change (just a bit!).

So here is what our favorite fashionista Rachel Zoe and your very own Phantom Fashion suggest:

1. Skinny Denim in Spring Brights or Gem Tones

Rachel's Pick: J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Leg; available in bright royal, bright red, bright, and bright fuchsia. $176 from

Phantom Fashion Pick: BDG Cigarette High Rise Jean in Plum. $58 from Urban Outfitters















2. Feminine Blouses with a Punch of Color

Rachel's Pick: V Neck Button Through Blouse with Ruffled Placket in azure. $195 from DKNY

Phantom Fashion Pick: Sweetened with Lemon Blouse. $46 from Fred Flare (limited amount left!)












3. Attention grabbing clutch

Phantom Fashion's Pick: Satin Flower Minaudiere in pink sorbet $59 at

Rachel's Pick: Bianca Dreams of Monte Carlo raffia and leather clutch by MarcbyMarcJacobs $200 from










4. Skinny belt in neon or blush

Rachel's Pick: Skinny Leather Wrap belt in fluorescent yellow by Miu Miu. $295 at

Phantom Fashion Pick: Whip-snake Waist Belt in Georgia Peach. only $24.95 from








5. Fun printed scarf

Rachel's Pick: Silk Printed Scarf by Versace. $405 at

Phantom Fashion's Pick: Ali Ombre with Frayed Ends Scarf in Purple $30 at














Play it big or play it safe. If you’re ever in doubt, brighten up your look with a scarf, belt, or bold statement necklace (jewelery report coming soon). I know you’re tired of wearing black…spice it up.

Spring is all about sheer, flowy fabrics. Pick silks, linen, or light-weight cottons. When it comes to blouses, If it’s too see through, layer with a lace cami (another Spring essential) underneath, or even matching lingerie. Oh and bright colored skinny jeans are perfect for this time of year as well.

And, while we all love the expensive designer goods, you could find similar styles without maxing out your Am Ex, which I recommend when it comes to seasonal, trendy items.

It’s time to go Spring Shopping–have a ball darlings!
