On runways from New York to Paris, we have seen some stunning color trends predicted for spring and into summer. From big bold blues to Canary yellows and from bright lush greens to soft powdery pinks, we are here to explain all the new color trends for this Spring. This season is full of bright playful colors and nobody is going to try and tell you how to wear them.
Mix and match if that is what your heart desires—the concept of clashing is a thing of the past. Want to wear a floral patterned summer dress with a polka-dotted sweater? We say go for it. This spring, wear those bright bold colors loudly and proudly.
The first big color trend this spring is bright bold blues and saturated canary-esque yellows. Specifically, Royal Blue and Cerulean are the blues for you this season. Not sure how to wear these bold primary colors? Here is a fun way to incorporate both of these colors into a single outfit: a sleek, yellow cocktail dress paired with a pair of blue satin pumps. A stunning spring statement outfit, worthy of a night out on the town or the next spring wedding you attend. To incorporate these colors into your office wardrobe, try a royal blue pencil skirt paired with a canary yellow cardigan.
Big purses and statement bags are also on trend this year. For this trend, the bigger and bolder, the better. Make a statement by incorporating some of these bright and lively colors into your outfit through a big and brightly colored tote bag.
Hot Pink and Pastel Pink are both trending right now. You will see these colors in and on everything from clothing to jewelry to home decor. We even recommend wearing these varying shades of pink together in the same outfit. A pair of soft and powdery pastel pink high-waisted jeans, paired with a bold hot pink or magenta top is just the vibe this spring season. Wear this outfit with some bold jewelry and a pair of floral-printed high heels to set this look. Floral dresses and puffy sleeves continue to be on trend this year so expect to see more of these patterns, especially in these soft, feminine pink hues.
These pink hues are also taking over interior decorating. A soft pastel pink makes for a great accent wall if you are considering painting this spring. You could also incorporate these colors into your home with a few accent throw pillows.
These colors are especially hot right now in dresses and skirts. Sure, the Little Black Dress is a staple and solid stand-by item in your wardrobe, but this year we encourage you to maybe consider a Little Green Dress as your go-to. This fun, bold statement is sure to impress.
Kelly Green, though bold, is accessible and a highly wearable color. This bright but natural hue perfectly reflects the indoor plant craze that has taken off in recent years. Kelly Green is the color of monsteras and pothos. This color looks great incorporated into any outfit, from date night to a day at the office. A more subtle limey green is also very on trend this spring. Incorporate some flashes of this color trend with a lime green patent leather belt or a pair of lime green heels or sandals.
Like the popular pinks right now, these greens are also popping up in home decor trends. Besides already being incorporated by way of indoor plants and living greenery in your home, you can add a pop of green with an accent throw blanket in the living room. (As a side note, if you love the look of greenery and live plants in your home but struggle to keep them alive, silk versions are just fine—we won’t tell!)
A theme amongst these hot new color trends is the vintage throw-back vibe they have. Big colorful blazers and mix-matched patterns borrow from the fun and loud trends of the late '80s and early '90s. Powdery pinks and baby blues showing up on jeans and cropped sweaters are reminiscent of the early aughts and Y2K fashion trends. If you have any of these nearly-vintage style trends in the back of your closet, now is the time to bring them back out! Otherwise, hit up a thrift store and find some fun pieces to incorporate into your spring wardrobe.
Have fun bringing these bold and beautiful colors into every corner of your life. Happy Spring!
