Must have Colors for Spring 2018

 

As you look out on the mountains of snow surrounding you and throw on yet another layer to keep warm,do not fret Spring is around the corner.I promise you it is coming and with it some uplifting fashion.

The good news is you have so many great choices of amazing nature inspired colors to rock this Spring.The Spring 2018 fashion shows have happened,the magazines are out and in NYC retailers have released the first delivery for the season.For all of you catalog and direct sales shoppers you should have you hands on all the Spring material.So what colors should you be wearing.

I feel the number one color this season is going to be white there are two versions of it out there right now that both look fresh and new,a bright white that looks like a fresh cracked coconut and a creamy off white version that is softly sublime.If you watched the Grammy’s sensational performance by Kesha a group of powerful women rocked head to toe white and off white.This season this color is about female empowerment.

White is usually a must have color for Summer but this season it headlines Spring.It is a classic mainstay and looks chic when mixed with your favourite black pieces.Mix it with pink and khaki for a fresh take on tradition.White shoes and bags are a mainstay as well and you do not have to wait for Memorial day to start rocking them.

Red is a must have color this season,I would go so far as to say that it is the new neutral, it is also a very powerful color.Women are gravitating towards power colors this season which is no surprise judging by the rise of the MeToo and Time’s Up movements.The red shoe is going to be the must have shoe of the season.Mix it with denim for a strong casual look and make sure you rock it on Valentine’s day.

Our love affair with pink keeps going and there are 3 shades of rose pink that are going to be very important this season. A soft blush tone,a mid sweet tone and a vibrant deep tone.Do not be afraid to mix these tones or wear a head to toe pink look.These shades also look amazing with navy,grey and khaki.

 

Lavender is a new color this season that is going to make a big impact.Pantone named purple the color of the year for 2018 and designers adapted this serene shade for head to toe dressing.It combines well with  all neutrals but looks really modern with white and grey.

Khaki has been reinvented this season in a softer,sandier tone.It feels like the new nude and is making its way into evening.It still remains the must have color for outerwear and this season we see a to die for crop of sublime khaki trench coats.

We are seeing a new Spring neutral emerge with this new spicy brown with hint of chocolate.Brown is usually a Fall color but this spicy tone sings Spring.Mix it with pink or khaki for casual chic.You will see it mixed into many of the Spring prints and as a shoe and bag option.

 

Sky Blue is making a big comeback this Spring especially in the active area and is now making an appearance in evening.It looks amazing with white and khaki and adds freshness when mixed with your wardrobe basics like navy and grey.

Finally rounding of the must have colors for Spring is a Sunny Yellow.Yellow is all about optimism and all of us need a lift after a dreary winter.Yellow dresses are going to be big come March and April and see them make a big splash at events.Yellow accessories will be important to give your outfit a Spring pop and looks fresh when mixed with grey ,white and khaki. It is not the easiest color to wear but looks better with a tan.

So have fun with color this Spring and do be a little adventurous and try something different.If you are not sure it is right for you try it as a small piece like a scarf or a cami and then go big.
