Update your look with bright colors

When spring time rolls around, most of us go into spring cleaning mode. We start to clean those back closets and the nooks and crannies that seem to get ignored all winter long. When it comes to our wardrobes, it’s a good idea to do a little spring cleaning as well!

This year, spring time welcomes some fabulous new colors  – all bright and beautiful for this new season. If you’re looking for a cheap and easy way to update  your look, try adding a pop of color to your everyday favorites.

For a really simple touch of color, try a new clutch or bag. You can get colors you’d normally shy away from and try something a little different.

At modbod, we love to add colors with our layering pieces! Try one of our spring colors in a cami or cap sleeve under your favorite cardigan or with your worn-in jeans. You’ll be surprised at how quickly an old favorite can be revived with just the right amount of color.

Accessories are another great way to really brighten up your wardrobe. Try some orange toned sunglasses, a chucky necklace with colored beads, or even a fabulous pair of wedge sandals. A little bit of accessorizing will go a long way!

What do you think? Will you be adding bright colors to your spring wardrobe?

How to Wear the Latest Spring Fashions

Warmer temperatures, longer days, and cute new fashions can only mean one thing = spring time is officially here! It’s time to put those bulky coats and wool sweaters into hibernation until next winter and sport the latest fashion trends fresh off the runway.

One of the hottest trends this season is sheer. We’re seeing sheer blouses, sheer skirts, and sheer jackets.

Not quite up to showing that much skin? No worries, modbod has got you covered…literally.

To wear this hot trend, simply layer your favorite modbod camis or cap sleeves under this seasons beautiful sheer tops. You’ll look stylish, while still being appropriate for school or the office.

Bright, bold colors is another really hot trend this spring. The modbod’s new spring line is perfect for this fashion trend! Check out a couple of our favorite new colors.

And speaking of color, we are absolutely in love with all things purple this season. All of Hollywood’s hottest celebs are showing up to red carpet events wearing various shades of purple. Fortunately, modbod has got the most flattering and versatile purple top that is to die for!

You’ve got to try this top…buy it now. You won’t regret owning this beauty! Works great with jeans and flip flops or with heels and a pencil skirt for the office.

Bold Colors Trend

If you love fashion or just love to shop, you probably have already noticed some of the strong 2011 spring trends starting to creep their way into stores. Whites are huge this year, along with 70’s inspired clothes and BOLD colors. Some people can be nervous to try new trends. Sometimes it’s hard to try something new or you like to just ease your way into the trend.

We have you covered on the Bold Colors trend and can help you go either all out with it OR just try a bit of it here and there in your wardrobe. Think cheerful bold colors. We are really excited for this trend.

#1 Fun, Flirty Skirts in Bold Colors: Yes, everyone knows that our skirts come in black, tan, denim, etc. but everyone is so surprised when they walk into our store in the mall here in Utah and see them in color. They are available in color! The Belle Skirt comes in royal blue and *bright* red. Our Tulip Skirt comes in a beautiful raspberry and indigo. Just those skirts paired with a crisp white button-up top (because that is the other big trend for spring, WHITE!) would make for a really fun outfit. If you are more daring and love to have fun with fashion you could pair it with another bold color.

#2 Our Basics Line: We can’t WAIT to show you the colors we have picked out for our spring line…we can show them off very, very soon but they are going to be perfect for this trend. You can wear any of these new colors in our basics line with just a pair of jeans. If wearing such a bright, bold color is still a little scary to you, you could pair it under a toned down earth tone cardigan or jacket. Then you just have a *pop* of that color and can have fun with the new trend in a toned down way.

Freshen Up Your Wardrobe for 2011

It is the perfect time to buy yourself a few new things for your 2011 wardrobe! Why not know in advance what the trends are going to be for spring so you can get the most with your money? Let us give you some tips for new things to add to your wardrobe that are ALSO trends for spring 2011.

  • Clutches & Envelope Bags: Adding a new bag, purse or clutch to your wardrobe can actually give your clothing a fresh new look.
  • Ruffles, yes still ruffles! But we aren’t tired of them yet and we’re glad that this has been a strong trend for a good year now. You can find pieces that have ruffles around the collar or hemline or even in your accessories.
  • White, yes WHITE, is the color to watch out for and stock up on for spring 2011. Phew! A color that is easy to find and really does go with everything.
  • The new length is *Below* the knee! Don’t you love when trends are actually modest and you can feel trendy but not show off too much skin? Our Mod Bod skirts will be perfect for this trend, like our Katie Jean Skirt pictured below:
  • Boyfriend Style Button Down Shirts. Yes, this means that they fit you looser and are longer on you.
  • Trouser Jeans are the new skinny jeans. This is exciting for those of us that didn’t feel like we could ever pull off the skinny jeans!
  • Lastly, you have to get a new pair of shoes for your wardrobe. Platform wedges are the shoes that are going to be hot this year. Look how great they look with the trouser jeans!

Thursday’s Economy Corner–Kali Cowel Neck Top

Fall is coming, Back to School Shopping is in full swing and this week we are featuring a great top: our Kali Cowel Neck Top. Here is how you can get the most out of this top in your wardrobe:

  • Kali is one of our favorite fall pieces.  Kali has an every day feel with a cowl neck, front tuck pleats and 3 quarter sleeves all in a soft draping fabric.  Perfect every day shirt for running the kids around, family pictures, date night or out with friends.
  • Don’t be fooled!  This is sure to add a touch of class to your wardrobe. Pair this with our pencil skirt and it creates the perfect outfit for work, church or a day full of meetings.
  • The band at the bottom of the shirt is very slimming and gives more room around the stomach area. Perfect for hiding any issues you think you have, this is a very flattering shirt on the figure!
  • You can add another long sleeve underneath to make it really warm for the cold months.  In the fall, it is perfect on its own or with a cami layered underneath. For the transitional months into fall or spring, you can wear this on its own with the sleeved pushed up.  It is the perfect transitional season piece!

It comes in these colors:

Thursday’s Economy Corner–Perfect Tee

Did you enjoy Thursday’s Economy Corner last week?  We loved showing you how to get the most out of your Mod Bod pieces and we are back to do it again.

We are going to show you how to work the Perfect Tee into tons of different types of outfits.  We’ll show you how to wear the top throughout the whole year and we’ll also give you a few other fun tips.  Here we go!

Our Perfect Tee is not your traditional Tee.  Cut to fit you perfectly, with slightly longer sleeves to flatter, the Perfect Tee is made with our signature quality fabric and stitching.  Extra long length covers your stomach and back, and keeps the shirt in place through any activity.
 
Here are some ideas on how to work it into your wardrobe:
  • Spring & Summer!  You need to have this top in stock during the warmer months so it can be your ‘go-to’ item like it is ours.  It goes perfect with Bermuda shorts, capris, jeans, linen pants, floral skirts or under your favorite summer maxi dress.  We have it available in 9 colors with some fun new spring colors.
  • Swim Cover Up:  The owner of Mod Bod swears by using the Perfect Tee as a swimsuit cover up.  It is perfect for putting over your suit so you don’t get burned when outside in your suit with your kids.  Pair it up with some board shorts or a swim skirt or capris for the perfect swim suit cover up.
  • Versatile: We love the Perfect Tee because you can leave it ‘as is’ for a great casual look or dress it up to match the occasion you are dressing for.  Layer it with a great jacket, beautiful accessories and sharp looking skirt for a more dressed up look. You can even put on a really nice pair of denim jeans, heels, a Perfect Tee and flowy cardigan for a dressed up casual look.  This top can be fit into all of your different outfits for any occasion.
  • Colder Months: We know some of our customers don’t like buying items that will only last them a month or two out of the year. The great thing with these Perfect Tees is that they can be used year round.
