Style Report: Spring/Summer Color Trends

Style Report: Spring/Summer Color Trends

New York and Paris Fashion Week have come and gone, and to say we're inspired is an understatement! There's a slew of new trends to bookmark for the 2022 fall and winter seasons. But before we jump back into the layer game and cold weather color palettes, our eyes are set on the hottest hues for this spring and summer.

While classic spring colors like pastels still remain a go-to for the season, many jewel tones are proving to be a large trend on the runways and social media.
Sergio Hudson's safari-themed Manhattan show, for example, was a colorful adventure that would leave anyone on the edge of their seat for what's to come. His signature cobalt blue - spotted on Mickey Guyton during Super Bowl 56 last month - symbolized an artful power in womenswear. But Hudson's SS22 collection displayed a more subtle vibe with the use of iris, salmon and minty green tones inspired by South African garb.

In our 2022 trends write up, we suggested that Pantone's Very Peri - among other candy-colored picks - was this year's shining star. Since then, black, dark browns and deep oranges have played a key role in recent high fashion looks. Of course, these aren't standard for warm weather, but there's beauty in the unexpected. Here's a glimpse of other colors we can look forward to:

Alluring, seductive and flirty, this shade of red has been spotted in many designer collections for both spring/summer and fall/winter. Poinciana speaks to a desire for excitement even during the times of staying in.

Designers like Dolce & Gabbana and David Koma have dipped heavily into this spring favorite. Many would consider orange an underdog hue, but the color symbolizes much-needed new beginnings.

Following up with 2021's Illuminating yellow from Pantone, daffodil has stepped to the forefront of recent collections. The cheerful tone brings fresh inspiration for springwear and summertime vacation looks.

Fashion designer and former creative director, Daniel Lee, cemented "Bottega Green" as an instant hit during his exit from the company. Since then, influencers, street style mavens, and fast fashion companies have made it their own.

 Find yourself craving a wardrobe refresh? Fair, a minty green, is among popular pastel tones for spring. Similar to its sister shade, "sage," the color personifies regrowth.

Valentino debuted a monochrome collection - Pink PP - centering a sultry hot pink, inviting the viewing audience to hone in on craft, detail and individuality.

Creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, on stripping the color palette down to a single hue:

"Pink [is] a manifestation of the unconscious and a liberation from the need for realism."

Only a few tones away from Innuendo, designers can't seem to part from classic bubblegum pink (and we understand why). Get ready to revert back to your childhood self with this simply sweet shade.

News flash: Black is still the new black. Simply put, this classic shade is here to stay no matter the season.
