What’s

COOL For

Spring

his spring season is full of bright colors and prints.

Floral patterns are popular for sundresses, as well as

pants, shoes and sunglasses. Flower motifs are one of

the biggest trends of the season.

Ann Taylor LOFT, at the mall at Lexington Green, is stocked full

of the flowery designs.

Sunglasses are the best accessories to make a statement

during the upcoming months. Bold colors with geometric frames will pop in the springtime. Try out round shapes instead

of square for a more original look.

If you’re searching for new sunglasses, Bluetique at

Woodland Avenue and East Maxwell Street, has plenty.

“We have a lot of really cute stuff for spring,” said Paige

Walker, Bluetique’s assistant manager.

Bluetique gets in four to five boxes of new items weekly, so

there’s always something fresh in stock. Walker said they have

tons of sunglasses, pants, tops and dresses in store for the new season.

With Keeneland around the corner, dress shopping is defi-

nitely in the cards for many Kentucky women. Luckily, Bella

Rose at South Upper and East Maxwell streets, has the perfect option for dress hunters this weekend.

“Our spring trunk shows are coming up, and the dresses are

great for graduation and Keeneland,” Bella Rose manager Kirsten Holliday | Staff

Allison Herrington said.

The Britt Ryan trunk show will be Thursday through Saturday.


The Kiribilla trunk show will be Friday,

Spice up a new outfit with chunky

necklaces and bold earrings — they

will be go-to pieces for any solid color dress or shirt.

Peggy’s, at 112 Clay Avenue, has

everything when it comes to jewelry.

Chevron bracelets, as well as other personalized pieces, are available.

“We specialize in monogrammed

things. We have monogrammed necklaces, purses and hats,” owner

Peggy Queen said.

Fox House Vintage, at 503 Euclid

Avenue, is another shop where you can pick up warm weather fashions.

Store treasures include bright shoes

and funky dresses.

J&H Lanmark, at 189 Moore Drive,

has all the styles for outdoor activities. Owner George Lathram said that his

best selling items for college women are the Columbia Bahama shirts and the

Chaco Fantasia sandals. Both come in a variety of colors. His most popular items for college men are Patagonia Baggies shorts, Chaco Z2 sandals and

Costa Del Mar sunglasses.

Other trends for guys include light khaki and pale gray suits.

Skinny ties with floral patterns paired with pastel shirts are also in style. And

loafers are the perfect shoes to complete any man’s outfit.

guys to shop around and polish their look. “You'll find seasonal looks for spring like seersucker suits and new spring bowties for Keeneland, as well as classic

navy blazers, needlepoint belts and a full line of shoes,” owner Steve Logan said.

Logan also said if you mention the spring fashion issue of the Kernel, the store

will take 15 percent off your entire purchase.

This spring is all about bold choices, and the stores around Lexington are

stocked with goods that will help revamp your wardrobe.

For spring

NAIL this or that

Styles you can’t survive spring without Anyssa Roberts Barely there nails

Soft pinks, light tans or just a buffed nail with a hint of shine were seen across the red carpet at this year’s Oscars. Stars like Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston wore the simple yet sophisticated look. Choose a shade to match your natural nail or take a trip to your local nail salon for a manicure. The barely there nail works with any skin tone and outfit this spring. Tip: To find the perfect nail shade, use the same process as finding your makeup foundation shade. Lay on the matte

Matte nails are an interesting option over the typical glossy nail. The glam look can be achieved with one layer of matte top coat over your favorite nail polish. Take your look from glossy to gorgeous with Essie’s “Matte About You” matte finisher ($10 Nordstrom.com). Tip: Layer one coat of “Matte About You” finisher over half the nail for a two-tone textured look.

Granite nails

Lay two coats of your favorite opaque nail color over your nails. Take a paper bag or a sheet of notebook paper and crumple into a ball. Take a contrasting nail color and dip the paper ball into the polish. Lightly roll the ball over your nails for a one-of-a-kind table-top manicure.

weaker the tape; the less of a chance of it removing the paint underneath. Dark n’ lovely

Add a sultry contrast to your spring wardrobe with a dark layered nail look. Vinyl purples, blackened blues, and greens were seen strutting down the runway during spring/summer fashion week. Designers like Jason Wu, Marchesa and Vera Wang layered dark shades of blue with black to achieve the look. Start with one coat of an opaque black polish, and layer sheer coats of dark purple, blue or green polish with a sheer black. Tip: Dark polish can stain nails. Be sure to use a base coat. Try OPI Natural Nail base coat ($8 drugstore.com). Sparkle n’ shine

Reflective metallics and chunky glitters, when placed properly, create a chic avant garde manicure. Metallic polishes can be found in all sizes and shades to add creative design and shine to your look. Tip: Add a gold design over your red polish, or one silver nail to your manicure for an original, edgy style. Pyramid

If you want your nails to stand out and be noticed, try the pyramid version of the Over the Moon look. To achieve the look at home, take your favorite opaque nail color and apply two coats to your nail. Take a piece of tape and cut a triangle out of the

Over the Moon

Two-tone manis are the design of choice for many fashionistas and celebs today. The moon shape design is a fabulous and easy way to take the twotone look to a new level. To achieve the look at home, take your favorite opaque nail color and apply two coats to your nail. Take a piece of tape and cut a curved shape out of the tape. Place the tape at the base of your nail, and paint your second color of choice over your nail. Remove the tape to see your one-of-a-kind design. Tip: Remove the tackiness from the tape by placing it on your skin. The

tape. Place the tape at the base of your nail, and paint your second color of choice over your nail. Remove the tape to see your priceless pyramid. Faded French

This look combines the classic French manicure with the contemporary look of the ombre technique. Simple and easy to achieve, paint one or two coats of French pink nail polish, or clear polish if you prefer. Take a makeup sponge and dip into white polish. Focusing on the very tip of the nail, lightly dab the sponge from the upper half of the nail upwards. Tip: Trade your white polish in for a red or black polish to take the look from subtle to sexy.

Nail stickers! The little secret of the beginning manicurist. Using nail stickers, you will achieve a flawless printed design on your nails every time. Downside; they do not last long; however putting a top-coat on your nails will prolong the longevity of your design.
