When it comes to colour, there are a few specific shades dominating the new-in sections of our favourite stores. Winter has seemed to last forever, which has made many of us stick to same-y darker hues, but now even the subtlest hits of sun have us on the lookout for vibrant pieces. We’re going to let you in on which sections of the colour wheel you should be focusing your attention on for spring/summer 2018.
You need only look to influencers and street style stars, who (always one step ahead) are already wearing head-to-toe brights. We’re particularly taken by eye-catching orange and bright-citrus yellow, both of which are especially mood-lifting. We’ve already been shouting about the rise of “The Great Green Dress” that’s selling out everywhere—but really, any emerald shade will do the trick. Bright reds, yellows and pinks make a statement, but there are also more muted offerings in soft greens and lilacs.
Believe it or not, embracing the colourblocking trend provides quite an easy formula for getting dressed. Simply pick one colour head-to-toe, or mix different shades of one hue—darker fuchsia paired with a sugary pink is one of our favourites. If you're a colourphobe, why not trial the trend with a colourful shoe? Keep scrolling to shop our favourite pieces in all of the colours of the season.
