Spring is the season that is generally associated with rebirth, budding flowers, and delicate, feminine fashions. It’s the time of year when most people put away their winter boots and sweaters and start reaching for lighter clothing. While most of us are itching to go for florals and pastels as soon as we feel a whiff of spring on the air, there are so many other, more unique alternatives. This spring, don’t go the predictable route and make everything flowery. Branch out, and try one of these bold colors that are trending right now.
Power reds were in vogue recently, but the darker crimson of winter has been replaced with a fresh and unforgettable scarlet. Pair this magnetic hue with nude lips and bright turquoise eyeliner for a look that’s sure to turn heads. Orange can be a difficult color for some people to pull off. It can clash with certain skin tones. But tangerine, one of the trending spring colors right now, is a mellower, more copacetic shade that works for everyone. A bright pop of this color is sure to give your wardrobe a burst of flavor.
Want to get trans-Atlantic with your outfits? Try out aubergine, the spring shade that’s wowing on runways. Aubergine is a rich purple that embodies its name so well, it’s what eggplant is referred to in parts of Europe. Purple is the color of kings and queens; if you don the hot aubergine shades that are coming out now, you’re sure to look like royalty. If you’d like to pair another trending color with this one, try marigold. Yellow and purple make a great pair, but aubergine and marigold are a match made in heaven.
Gray is the neutral that everyone is talking about right now. Not as harsh as black or as breezy as white: gray is just right. It pairs with everything and is perfect for day looks and dinner dates. This color can be combined with any of the above as an accessory, or use those colors as accent to give gray a bright pop. When worn with dusty blue, another popular color right now, it can give the soothing impression of the sky right after it rains. However you decide to wear them, these hues are the ones to reach for this season. Let them inspire you to break away from the traditional pastel conveyor belt and try something new.
