Your guide to a bold, colorful spring wardrobe

Apr 1, 2015 at 12:00 a.m. ET

I recently had the opportunity to partner up with SheKnows and Nordstrom Rack to share some of my favorite spring trends.

I usually wear a simple palette of neutral colors in my wardrobe, including lots of black and white. But spring is that time of year when I can be more fun and playful with my fashion and introduce splashes of color and pattern play into my looks.

Spring occasions, like Easter or a bridal shower, are the perfect setting to show your personality through color and pattern. Graphic prints and pop colors are major for spring, and bohemian beach hues of sea blues are in my wardrobe.

Get the look by pairing complementary colors that won't overpower each other, and similarly pair prints like florals with stripes. Keep the accessories neutral for a sophisticated elegance, otherwise too much color can be tacky and overpowering. Also, if you're not really a "floral" person (like myself), add some edge to your look with masculine-inspired shoes, and rock studs.

I chose these designer pieces from a huge selection of discounted items at Nordstrom Rack. Wearing: Equipment top, Parker skirt, Chloe sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff bag and Stuart Weitzman sandals.
