Dallas’ favorite fashion entrepreneur and boutique owner, John Piermarini, is officially saying sayonara to his boutique’s winter wardrobe, as he welcomes the most stylish of spring trends! Piermarini Boutique, famed for its’ shopping in your best friends closet experience, will be undergoing its seasonal transformation, from wintery woolens to a sophisticated and lively spring collection.

The women’s wear collection will kick-off the new season with hints of “ocean colors”; sea foam greens & blues that are pale and pair nicely with bolder accents. Piermarini has handpicked a selection of top-notch designers to be sold in the boutique, including an elite collection comprised of women’s wear by Minimarket, Won Hundred, Osklen, Kymerah and Hyden Yoo.

Regarding the new men’s collection, Piermarini says, “We are keeping it classy & simple with that extra edge this season.”

Chartreuse: Ugly or Unique?

It’s a goofy sounding word for a color (kind of like the Cerulean blue in the Crayon box,) but chartreuse isn’t goofy on the bodies of hot models for Spring 2012. I haven’t quite decided how I feel about the color yet, even though I bought a chartreuse shirt myself for spring and sported it at a wedding reception a few weeks ago.  Though it’s eye-catching and can be worn with a myriad of complementary bold colors, is it ugly or unique?  You decide.

If you DO decide it’s unique and worth trying out, here are a few tips:

1. This yellowy-green color looks fabulous with hot pink, royal blue, different shades of purple, black, gray, and even electric blue.  Old Navy has a hot pink maxi skirt ($28) that would be lovely with a chartreuse top. Just keep away from other yellows, greens, certain turquoise colors, and too much gold.

2. If you do an all over chartreuse look, keep accessories and makeup simple.
