I decided to continue with spring trends this week, focusing today on the bright anorak!  A bright anorak adds a wonderful pop of color to any spring outfit, as well as providing a bit of protection from fickle spring weather.  The mid-thigh length and cinched waist are flattering for all body types, and primary colors red, yellow, and blue are in style year after year.  Style wins all around!

For this outfit, I chose to pair my bright yellow Nine West anorak with my Nine West boat shoes, polka dot chambray, white sweater, and new glasses (yes, I normally wear contacts but decided to get a new pair of glasses after 10+ years!) for a preppy work look.  I can also see pairing a bright anorak with a nautical striped dress or skirt, or even skinny olive cargo pants.
