Of the rose and all its trendy shades, from the palest to the strongest – up to the ultra violet, chosen by Pantone color 2018 – we have already spoken, as well as another very popular color this season, orange. Let’s now explore the other trendy shades to wear this spring, naturally taking into account your tastes, personalities and the occasion of use.
Light blue – Present on different catwalks in pastel version, for example from Versace, it is noticed and loved even in more charged shades such as turquoise (from Michael Kors, Kiton and Dolce&Gabbana) and sugar paper (Valentino, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton ). There are also those who brought him on the catwalk, DSquared2, but in the aquamarine shade: an elegant vintage-style ceremony suit that did not go unnoticed.
Red – Also this season, like the one just passed, has chosen red as the color most loved by fashion brands.
In its most vivid version, and especially paired with black, we find it in almost all the luxury sportswear collections, such as Dior Homme, Prada, Emporio Armani. If you are not afraid to dare, here are the red total looks of Dolce&Gabbana or Paul Smith, while if you prefer a less charged shade, closer to the burgundy, let yourself be inspired by the Valentino designer clothes.
Brown – You will think it is impossible that this color, especially in the “scorched earth” version, is in vogue in spring and not in autumn-winter; but look carefully at the outfits in the gallery, especially the color combinations, primarily with white, yellow and yes, even with red-orange .. Think for example an elegant suit of linen of this color combined with t-shirt or white shirt; brown gives a very chic air! (see the looks of Berluti, Hermès, Bottega Veneta) and it is perfect to wear even if you love the ethnic and folk style (see Etro fashion show) or the casual-sport style (see Fendi).
Green – The color of spring rebirth and hope we find it in different looks and all its nuances. Leaving aside the wide use of the green that the fashion houses do for their camouflage or tropical camouflage prints (yes this season will be in pole position in the ranking of the trendiest fantasies) here we will talk about its monocolor version. Valentino brings together two very different shades, but the effect is very harmonious. Corneliani mixes his overcoat in sage green suede leather with brown, Prada plays with blue while Daks for his English-style suit combines it with Borsalino and a preppy style sweater. Balenciaga mixes it with stripes for his trousers and chooses fluo for his bag, while Dirk Bikkembergs loves green grass and approaches it with black.
Blue – Evergreen absolute of the beautiful season, gives a touch of discrete elegance and becomes sublime when combined with white creating the navy style (sometimes, as in the case of Salvatore Ferragamo, you only need an accessory to give the impression to the look). It is absolutely and always the favorite color of Giorgio Armani and, not by chance, we find it extensively in both the collection related to the line that bears his name and in that Emporio Armani. Fil rouge of both, naturally presented with different styles, a timeless must that every man should have in his wardrobe: the pinstripe suit. Corneliani plays down the use of the blue double-breasted jacket with the addition of sneakers with clean lines, while Hermès gives a relaxed tone to the whole outfit through the soft lines of the hooded jacket-shirt and the leather sandals. Fendi Instead, it combines garments of different lengths and different types of blue: the result is a youthful and contemporary look.
