Hot Hue

Flame: This season’s hottest hue

We get asked often about color trends, which is rather silly in theory. Wear what you love and what flatters! That said, we are particularly inspired by all of the red-orange tones out this spring.

Flame is quite flattering on a range of complexions because the undertone of the orange is a warm red. It really brightens this fair complected Fendi model and looks exotic on someone with a more olive skin tone.

Christian Dior’s cat eye sunglasses add the perfect pop of color to a neutral outfit.

Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere wears a bold flame lip color.

The ultimate flaming hair, Florence of Florence + the Machine

Not so sure this color is for you? Try just a hint of the hue with a feminine print like this one from Oscar de la Renta.

Light up the room by taking the color into evening, like this fierce gown by Oscar de la Renta.

A few options available at Augusta Twenty
Have a beautiful weekend!

Vino & Van Gogh

Last night at A20, a fabulous time was had by all! Artist Marquin Campbell instructed us how to paint a work inspired by one of our favorite vintage fashion photographers, Lillian Bassman. We sipped, socialized, and shopped while fostering our inner artist. We can’t wait to host another Vino & Van Gogh event in the near future. Be sure to check out Chouette, Marquin’s jewelry line, available on our website. Have a lovely holiday weekend! We have lots of sweet spring dresses for you last minute shoppers.
