Honey Inspiration – Fashion

So you know we are finding our inspiration in honey and today I am applying honey to fashion.

Maybe not the way you are thinking!

We will be looking at fashion through honey coloured glasses.

Here is our palette.

Spring 2012 - Honey Inspired

Honey Coloured Inspiration

Honey Inspiration: I’m sure for those of you how know me, this colour palette wouldn’t be much of a surprise. After all I have confessed my love of burnt orange in the 70s, my current Tangerine Tango crush and you would have noticed by now that as a child of autumnal colouring these are colours I have in abundance in my wardrobe.

Honey Inspiration Spring 2012: Hopefully this selection of photos will show you that the honey colour palette isn’t just for Autumn. In fact these are fantastic Spring looks that could suit anyone in a number of different situations. I love the pleated, almost fringe look shirt in the centre pic on the top and think it is too cute with that honey coloured mini. I couldn’t wear it with my “mature-aged knees” but how cute for someone a little more young and fresh than I! I’m more likely to be wearing the pleated maxi-skirt. Although it looks great in this photo I would wear it either with my vintage alligator grown bag or would have to make myself a leopard print over-sized clutch,which would look great!

Honey Fashion Autumn

Honey Inspiration Autumn 2012: I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the honey colour palette would look so great when done up for Autumn. I like that in the top centre picture it is used with metallic which is so hot for this year. As seen also in the bottom right, metallics that work for this palette are gold, rose gold, bronze and copper. Other accessories that add to the look are leather, boots, belts and bags. Of course all things knit add another level of warmth to your honey inspiration.

Honey Fashion Fabulous

Honey Inspiration 2012 = Fabulous:And just in case you didn’t think the honey colour palette could be fabulous enough for those special occasions, I hope this collection of photos proves differently. Fur, frills and all things fancy can look fabulous when done in shades of honey. I love the dress that has the bow on the pencil skirt. How fantastic would that look with the pearl and coloured strand necklace just below it? Add in leopard print pumps and you would be fierce!

So what do you think of Honey Inspiration in Fashion? Do you find it tasty? Too sweet? Or is it just not sticking?
