Spring is finally here! And that means that temperatures are warming up. It also means a changing of the color palette in your wardrobe. So clean out those closets and get ready to try something a little different when it comes to color. Here, we will give you a rundown of all the most popular recent color trends in haute fashion design. By investing in a few pieces featuring these color trends, now, you can easily transition your wardrobe from winter to sunny, fresh spring.
Warmer, Subtler Tones
Spring often sees the introduction of warmer, softer nature tones to the overall fashion color palette. This year was no different. There were plenty of lilacs, demur oranges, blush pinks, almond tones, and sea foam greens gracing the runways. For example, Alberta Ferretti premiered dresses in almonds, while designer Chloe went with bright, glowing lemon and citrus colors for the season. We highly encourage you to purchase a few colors in breathtaking pastels, dreamy tie-dyed colors, and even prints with just a pop of these lighter, brighter colors. We foresee both lighter shades of brown and brighter tints of yellow being the “it” colors this season.
Neutrals upon Neutrals
Even with the introduction of brighter colors for the season, we still saw a few darker colored hold-outs for the spring season. Chief amongst these hold-overs from winter were dark, deep blues, silvery grays, earthy olives, and the ever-present black. Surprisingly, though, spring is also seeing the popular introduction of a new neutral in cream and white. Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci, and J.W. Anderson all premiered coats, suits, and dresses in the darker winter hold-over shades. Lanvin, Dior, Hermes, Armani, and Adam Lippes all softened up their spring collections with the subtle introduction of all-white dresses.
Bright, Nature Inspired Prints
Love bright, bold colors? Then look no further than the nature inspired print designs for this season. The feminine, romantic floral prints from seasons past were replaced, this season, with vivid, bright, even kitschy prints. Designers like Marni, Thom Browne, Victoria Beckham, and House of Holland led the way in creating stunning outfits that maximized bright color power. While some fashion experts see a real similarity in these styles and the styles of the 1970s, others are saying that these styles represent a new feeling of freedom of expression in color.
