Spring into Fashion
Spring is in the air, and only days away! The first day of spring is March 20, and this year, spring colors are all about experimenting. Whether you follow Vogue’s spring colors, or create your own – now is the time to express yourself! However, if you are wondering just what Vogue has chosen as their top 10 spring summer colors, here they are:
Lavender: this color will dominate the whole summer season. It is romantic yet elegant.
Purple: Pantone’s 2018 color of the year is Ultra Violet. A color that intrigues with its hybrid, mysterious nature, associated with the seventh chakra, where the human meets the divine. ‘Experiment’ is the word.
Rapture rose: a full, princess-like, intense pink shade.
Sky blue: a fresh color that evoke a serene sky.
Light green: green is back also for summer 2018, this time with a delicate and fresh nuance.
Military green: considered now as a neutral hue, just like beige, it often ‘breaks’ elegant or sporty looks on military style pieces. But is also worn from head to toe by a modern woman who faces the urban jungle every day.
Milk white: a full, warm hue. Nothing to do with optical white, cooler and cyber-like.
Chocolate brown: brown is back on the runway. Intense and enveloping, it will impossible to resist this shade, just like it’s impossible to resist a chocolate praline.
Yellow: the same shade of the tracksuit sported by Uma Thurman in Tarantino’s Kill Bill. A vibrant, energizing tone of yellow. And a little wild, too, just think of paintings by Kandinsy or Matisse. And yellow’s comeback for 2018 is strictly connected to purple, its complementary color.
Tomato red: a totally bold, entrancing hue.”
