Spring into the Season


PHOTOS By Erika Hodges

Have you ever thought about what your clothes are made of? Or what that might mean to you? Natural fibers are materials such as cotton, silk and wool. The fibers are free from herbicides and pesticides that some believe could potentially be harmful to the body, and we can all agree that they are quite comfortable and a great fabric to transition into as things start warming up! The women at Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine have once again partnered up with Kellie’s Consignments to bring a fresh look on some clothes that are considered to have natural fibers!

Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try mixing different colors and patterns. A subtle pattern in the pant can be very slimming and the soft design in the top is enough to capture the eye in a flattering way. This outfit offers layers for the unknown temperatures yet is made with lightweight fabrics for comfort. It is a great transition into the warmer weather and the colors bring a fresh take to your wardrobe.
