Today, we will talk about colours and the most popular combinations for this spring-summer season. It is important to remember that being the warmest time of the year, wearing a dress is a great option if you are going to a picnic or an outdoor wedding. You should always consider dresses as a suitable garment because they will not only offer top comfort but also make you look great.
Main trends? First, the target is the herald of the new season in singular tonalities that establish a sense of conviction. Second, the cakes raise their amperage with an almost luminous quality. New colours become fashionable, lilac is a great exampleo, which comes to rebalance the already successful palette of rosés that has been imposed since last season as the vibrant alternative and the feminine option. Third, the bright and energetic tones carry the message of individuality and creativity with a bold and youthful attitude. While ground tones, as background, are remodelled, as a fourth option, leading the transition to this infallible palette.
Bright white shades refresh the selection of footwear and accessories announcing a new season with optimistic sensitivity. These pure white anchors the palette for spring summer 2018 but also acquire relevance in line with the increase in monochromatic outfits. Soft skins and high-tech fabrics are used in port and tailor looks, while femininity is highlighted by opulent ornamentation.
The warm palette imparts a sophisticated feeling to the season, underlining the quality of chromatic richness. The sand colour, the yellow ochre and the brick move away from other paler shades of previous seasons with an earthy quality, intensifying the palette with an impression of freshness that will continue throughout the rest of the season. Ivory – with greyish undertones – appears as an alternative to white.
Citric pastel colours
Luminous cakes reload the palette of the spring summer 2018 aligned with a message full of confidence. These acid pastel colours impart a sense of femininity to the collections, with the introduction of trendy colours such as pale lime, electric lilac, pink “sweet” and frosty blue. All applied as solids, in “looks” from head to toe.
The powerful presence of the lilac is a trend itself. It departs from the offer of cakes and offers a fresh alternative to rosés. The electric lilac has a feminine quality and jovial energy that will tread strongly. The introduction of blue and grey are added to the tones of mandatory status. Specially, for the tailor-type and masculine air attire.
The shades of green from the forest to its intermediate manifestations are interpreted this season as the perfect alternative to navy blue. We will see it in applications saturated in skins, in sports styles and in monochromatic “looks”.
This dramatic colour joins the chorus of strong alternatives, from the fiery red, through the tomato, using its optical quality, amplified by the shiny endings. A new tone is the “indie red”, which has an orange tint, which offers a versatile option for its earthy undertones.
A bold palette resonates this season, while designers invest in invigorating and saturated colours, bold combinations, recharging footwear and accessories for the new season. The glossy finishes intensify this optimistic message.
Black and white
Timeless combinations of black and white offer an elegant and more serious air to the collections. These combinations have a modern look that can be worked in both sophisticated and sporting styles. Here also striking patterns can be introduced.
The golden tones continue to evolve from pre-summer as the most prominent metallic of the season. The pure gold communicates a sense of opulence for the spring summer of 2018, standing out in elaborate embroidery and antique metals. The paler sandy metallic ones maintain a richness that goes well as an accent of the earthy neutrals. The mirror and gloss finishes amplify this feature.
It is the most “spring-ish” colour of the palette. It refers to the feminine, to our inner child and to the flowers of the most romantic season. This time, the pink is presented in its most washed version. Pale, opaque and in a very soft tone and easy to combine. Or at its most saturated, furious and metallic end. Even, it is also one of the shades of the season for men, who add it in dress shirts, printed T-shirts or a great convertible dress.
Remember that this is only referential, and the proposed colours are inspirational, they do not have to be exact, but similar tonalities. You can apply it from an accessory, a pair of heels, a purse, a blouse, a scarf or even your makeup. Of course, always taking into account the dress codes of each of our professional environments.
