WARDROBE UPDATE: SPRING COLORS

Colors You Should Add for a Pop in Your Wardrobe This Spring

 

Spring always feels like a time of rejuvenation, lifting off the dull gray weather and winter coats for a light and colorful wardrobe. A pop of color is just what is needed to spruce up a spring wardrobe. Many bright colors were presented as full monochrome outfits on the runways recently. Stay on trend and learn about what’s popular this season for both men’s and women’s styles.

 

Yellow

Adding a yellow bag or scarf to a neutral monochrome outfit is a great way to add that color pop for spring. Pantone’s spring trend report includes the more classic “Meadowlark” and very dramatic “Lime Punch” as the two bright tones in the yellow category.

Orange

While, for some, orange may conjure up Halloween or a construction vest, it was seen at several spring fashion shows looking more refined. Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, and Calvin Klein all had orange as part of their spring 2018 collections.

Lavender

For those who want a more subtle tone this spring, lavender is on trend this year. Tibi and Michael Kors had examples in their collections. Mint and lavender together is also proving to be a popular combination this season.

Pink

Yes, pink is still on trend for this year and I am totally here for it!! Many designers combine two shades of bold pink, or a pink with red for a more dramatic effect.

Monochrome

The spring 2018 shows had countless outfits for men and women in monochrome for a polished, striking look. For women, the yellow, orange, lavender, and pink tones were prominent for many of the looks. Men’s colors were more muted and neutral.

 

Doing some research I noticed black was not on any runway. That is because black is not “in” this spring. Navy, lighter blue, brown, beige, and cream are all on trend for menswear.

Remember the rule of three when dressing in monochrome: three pieces of similar tones work best. A top, bottoms, and jacket; or dress, jacket, and shoes. Own your style and have fun with it. Add a pop of color to your outfit or color block. The choice is yours.
