Colour and how to wear it is always a popular topic on the blog. So this week I thought I would write about the trend colours for Spring/Summer and tell you which ones are right for you and where to find them.
First of all, what are this season’s colours?
The colours from left to right are; Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Lilac Grey, Fiesta, Iced Coffee, Green Flash.
Each year there is a colour of the year. However, this year there are two; Rose Quartz and Serenity which I think signals a return to femininity.
Trend colours to suit Light Colouring
Choose Rose Quartz, Serenity, Limpet Shell, Lilac Grey and Iced Coffee. If you are Light and warm add Peach Echo and Buttercup. In Spring and Summer mix two or more light shades, perfect in the sunshine.
Trend Colours to suit Deep Colouring
Choose Snorkel Blue and for Deep and warm use Peach Echo, Buttercup and Fiesta as a contrast. For Deep and cool choose Rose Quartz, Serenity and Lilac Grey. In the summer months the colours tend to be lighter which can be tricky for those with Deep colouring. Remember though that you can wear any of your neutrals with these accent colours. Consider Chocolate brown linen mixed with Peach Echo or a Black dress with Fiesta accessories.
Trend colours to suit Cool Colouring
Rose Quart, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Limpet Shell and Lilac Grey. Mix blues and greys to play up your cool colouring.
Trend colours to suit Warm Colouring
Choose Peach Echo, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Fiesta, Iced Coffee and if you are Warm and bright, Green Flash. Think of golden beaches and sunshine when you put your look together.
Trend colours to suit Bright Colouring
For Bright and cool choose Rose Quartz, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Limpet Shell, and Lilac Grey. For Bright and warm choose Peach Echo, Buttercup, Fiesta, Ice Coffee and Green Flash. But remember with any of the softer colours add one of your brights and with any lighter colours add a bright or darker neutral because you need contrast in your outfits.
Trend colours to suit Soft Colouring
Choose Rose Quartz, Serenity, Limpet Shell, Lilac Grey and Iced Coffee. Blend colours together without too much contrast, for example mix Rose Quartz or Serenity with Iced Coffee.
