Live on the Bright Side at LOFT


"Color me happy!" That's the message for spring, with mix-and-match brights

vibrant patterns, from exotic florals and nautical stripes and playful polka dots.
Want to make the look your own? Try mixing cool and warm hues—pair a turquoise floral blouse with lovely yellow pants. Or, go for a range of colors (and showcase your sunny side) in a dramatic color-block shift. And you can always get graphic with a dotted black-and-white swing dress.
