On trend: Colors of spring 2015
Between Pantone Color Institute’s Fashion Color Report and the most exciting fashions from spring 2015 runways, the colors of the season may be varied, but they all complement the springtime spirit perfectly.
Almost every side of the color wheel is represented this year with hues ranging from bright and dazzling to soft and mellow. Take a look at the top colors of the season and how you can wear them:
Various shades of blue dominated the runways for spring clothes: Three of the top blue hues included icy aquamarine, bright scuba blue and turquoise. Since most blues tend to be flattering for any skin tone, you can find clothes in these light and bright blues all season and still feel great about wearing them for years to come. Mix blue with other bright colors of the season by styling a pair of blue jeans with a colorful blouse or jacket.
White is always a neutral go-to, and this season designers paired it with a multitude of different colors and even sent models down the runway in head-to-toe white outfits. For curvy ladies, white is absolutely wearable, despite what you may have heard about black being more slimming. To feel comfortable in the neutral this season, focus on the fit, cut and fabric of the white clothes you’re buying. Find structured items that create the appearance of an hourglass figure. And don’t forget, a little shapewear can go a long way under a white dress!
Shades of green that are popular this season range from lime to soft lucite to military. Like blue, most green hues are universally flattering – plus, the more subdued shades like lucite and military can be pretty neutral, making them easy to pair with vibrant accessories.
Yellow and orange
Lemon and tangerine are two of the most show-stopping colors of the season. While these colors look stunning and sophisticated in skirts, blouses, blazers and more, they’re also easy to wear in your jewelry or handbags.
Red and pink
From bright cherry red to vibrant coral to soft rose, reds and pinks round out the colors of the season beautifully. Incorporate them into your wardrobe with cardigans, skirts, ballet flats and more, and pair them with lighter neutrals, such as gray and beige.
How to wear this season’s colors
The message of spring’s most popular colors is to choose hues that make you feel confident and beautiful. The wide variety of shades makes it easy for any woman to find a color that suits her personality, flatters her body and makes her feel amazing. This season, don’t shy away from mixing various hues together, since color blocking as well as dynamic prints and patterns are expected to be widespread trends throughout the season. From Boho to geometric, spring’s popular patterns are using a multitude of bright colors together.
Also, keep in mind that the colors don’t need to dominate your look. If you prefer simple or monochromatic outfits, simply use colorful jewelry, scarves and handbags to incorporate the season’s shades.
