There’s literally no excuse left to not embrace popping colors anymore. The cold months of winter are over, the fresh and colorful life of spring is here – and this year, popping colors are EVERYWHERE. It’s trendy, it’s energizing and it’s very much needed after a winter of grey and black. Surely red has been trending and colors in general have been more popular than before, but there’s so much more to be explored! I’ve written down three colors spring 2018 that are ready to be used and loved by you (or something like that). Anyways, here we go:
Colors Spring 2018
Yellow Spring 2018
Is there one color that’s been more hated or loved over the years? Think not! Yellow has for long been considered a childish color and has never really won over the general public in our modern day fashion. It’s only logical as yellow is a shade that’s difficult to pull off as the color easily clashes with your skin tone. I do think there are ways to neutralize though, definitely by choosing a shade of yellow that suits you, but also learning how to neutralize it with some styling tricks. When it comes to choosing your shade of yellow, know if you lean towards a more cold or warm yellow. You should also think about the intensity where a baby yellow is better for some whilst other prefer an intense neon. The mustard yellow might be the most popular when done for fall, but it’s also a shade that’s quite flattering and definitely unexpected for spring! A quick tip on how to neutralize yellow is to choose it for an accessory. It will make a cute pop, which is always flattering. Yellow is a color that works the best with white, a light grey and orange if you ask me. It’s also a chic one with denim, which is a material that neutralizes the intensity of yellow. Above all though, yellow is a great splash of energy for spring! The color is also associated with happiness, the sun and intelligence. I mean, pretty good things to embrace huh?
Red Spring 2018
This classic color has been trending the past months and is going strong this spring too. Red is a color that suits everyone and I think that’s reason enough for you to try it as well. Enjoy it for sure with stripes, but also a casual duo with some denim. Red and leather is edgy and chic when you want to create a dynamic outfit. This classic color is also a must for your lips and nails, creating a timeless and favorable vibe. Red has been done in the monochromatic style a lot, but also for dresses, shoes and jumpsuits. If you love red but don’t think it’s a color that’s for you, try the red pants! They give some distance to your face, which is often the area of your skin where you decide whether you enjoy the color or not. To give red some extra boost, red is the color of love, passion, power and strength!
Purple Spring 2018
I think I should at least have some cred for trying to bring some positivity to the color purple. I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but one of the best parts about a color trending is getting new perspectives on how you can wear it. The trendiest shades of purple at the moment are the lighter shades but also the ultra violet. I’ve written a #Trendalert and also some styling tips in this article. One thing I can add is to stress that this color is a chic one for spring, especially the lighter shades of purple. Going for the pastels are a great way of embracing the sweetness and sophisticated style of the spring season. You can catch some inspiration in this article too! Don’t forget that purple is a color associated with royalty, luxury and calmness.
