According to FashionTrendsetter this season’s colour palette is one of vibrancy, not unlike the colours you may remember from the iMac Colour in the early 2000’s; green, bright orange and pink. In addition to these three basics, this season also features softer pastels reminiscent of the naivety of the 1950’s. And opposite the lighter shades are deep purples, blues, greens and oranges. The most popular of colours and appearing all across the board are no surprise with rich neutrals like auburn and midnight blue.
No matter the source, the winning colour this year has to be turquoise. Appearing on every site and coming in as this year’s Pantone colour of the year, there’s no question turquoise is a great colour. Turquoise evokes a calming and comforted emotion, while maintaining a fun tropical appeal. An aesthetically pleasing combination of blue and green, turquoise possesses positive qualities from both colours. Easily one of the most popular colours blue is associated with the happiness you may find with a perfect blue sky; whereas green, the colour most seen in nature, makes you think of growth and more recently the shift to living “greener”.
If there is some doubt as to which colours to wear this summer, at least remember there is one that is easily matched with almost every other colour in the spectrum. Turquoise compliments your reds and pinks, livens up your greens and neutrals, and gives you blue a maritime feel. And if you feel in the mood to be original, it can be paired with chartreuse effectively.
