Sunshine and Shadow Spring 2010 Lookbook

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

I'm not usually a fan of bold, bright hues in my wardrobe, even in the Spring, but something about the punchy colors and the understated luxury of the fabrics for Sunshine and Shadow's S/S '10 lookbook makes me happy today. The silhouettes are simple, but when you are using color this intense, the minimalist aesthetic provides a gentle counterpoint for the visual saturation.













How would you style these pieces? For the complete lookbook and to learn more about the brand, check out: http://sunshineandshadow.com.

P.S. Off to Boston for Thanksgiving week! Hope you enjoy the start of the holiday season!

I"m gravitating more and more towards colour these days. i love greys and blacks and neutrals but I'm finding I've got too much now in my closet. so i'm all for these punchy hues!

I like how the colours are blocked together, and she hasn't shied away from pairing one bright colour with another. I might do more of an athletic look with these pieces - they speak "action" to me.

I love that blue dress and would wear it in all manner of ways. It seems so oddly versatile in it's boxy brightness...

I'm generally quite scared of wearing colour but these pieces are really nice. I love the necklaces - they remind me of ones I made from straws as a kid

I used to only wear black and grey. Not because I was trying to make any sort of statement, but instead because I thought those were timeless colors that would look great on anyone. Now, I am finding myself drawn to more and more colors...especially jewel tones! Love your selections and definitely checking out their website now!

I love these colors. The shapes are great too. My favorite part though- the socks and sandals. It's right between youthful and chic. Too cute!

I am absolutely in love with this collection! It's simplicity is so intriguing. The collection is all about mixing and matching different colors and being really original! You're coming to Boston?!?!?! We should totally run into each other! LOL. Like, "Oh! What are you doing here? What a coincidence?" Anyway. I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Wow, I love this lookbook! It will inspire me to incorporate more colors in the spring. I actually stick to dark colors too (black, gray and navy) on a daily basis during the winter.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving in Boston!!

Happy thanksgiving!!!

I'm not so much into bright and bold hues or any combination of it. My skin tone is not made for these shades! But I am willing to try a piece here and there - just a slight smattering of these lovely pieces :)

M.M.E. said...

I'd pair these dresses with longer legs. Haha. I like the colors though. Very bold. Have a great Thanksgiving!

Midtown Girl said...

Those wedges are so eye-catching.

I'm not usually a fan of bright colors, but these are sweet!

Chessa! said...

MizzJ said...

Love this collection!! Bright colors just make you feel more cheerful, which I really need more of in my current rainy climate. Hmm to style these I might just pair it with my typical dark neutrals. I think brights would make an interesting play on preppy styles which usually don't incorporate them.
