Summer 2020 is all about color. Vivid, bold, and bright colors are the shades of the season!

Classic Blue

Every Designer had something blue in their wardrobe and on the runway for spring 2020. From Ferragamo to Balmain a sea of blue could be seen on the catwalks. This universal medium blue is the color of the season and was selected as Pantone’s color of the year. The name classic blue is a little bit misleading. The blues shown this season were anything but classic. The bold vibrant hues remind me of Majorelle Blue however these blue shades are all in the same color family.

Pistachio

This color was dominating in the fashion shows and everyone is loving the light pastel tone. A soft de-saturated pale yellow-green is such a refreshing warm tone color this time of year. The great thing about this one is that it looks good on both top and bottom or even as an accent color. It is also easy to wear and appropriate for all ages to keep you on-trend.

Tangerine

Straight from the fashion houses comes one of the hottest colors this season you need to have in your closet. if you are looking to make a statement with color, then you will find this hugely popular one we are seeing everywhere right now. It’s a bold and bright warm temperature orange. The vivid pigment is almost synonymous with summer and looks especially flattering on tanned skin.

Saffron

Taking a cue from the summer sun is another fully saturated color to enjoy. It was no surprise that couture was inspired and now we see it is wildly trending. Saffron is a warm golden rich yellow. It falls between yellow and orange and has a strong tint. Wearing a pop of this captures that cheerful spicy vibe and can’t help but put you in a positive mood.

All white looks

A must-have no shopping trip should be without this season is white. There is no color more crisp and clean. Always classic and fresh white is notorious to wear in summer and the look is sophisticatedly chic. For those who feel bold color choices are not their thing, this neutral is perfect for the minimalist. Valentino displayed a stunning collection dedicated to this basic and as expected it is a hit. Compared to it’s brighter selections this modern base is not simplistic. Don’t mistake this shade for being lackluster. Wear it alone or pair it with a bolder option for balance.

Purple

Purple has been electric on the red carpets as well as the runways recently. Ranging from lavenders to lilacs in a variety of cool grape tones there has been a heavy influence on fashion this season in this colorway. The purple trend is a carryover from fall but the lighter and softer versions are currently shining in the spotlight. Since purple has become so popular we could look forward and see it return in the fall with deeper darker contrasts.

Coral

While coral falls within the orange family it’s so hot this season that it deserves its own place as a separate color. This interesting hue is a warm-toned blend of pink and orange.  It can come in various values depending on how much pigment is added. We are seeing it this season most often lean towards a softer pale shade. Lovers of pink will appreciate the feminine reiteration of last year’s color of the year.  Coral is also found to have a broad appeal since it looks good on nearly all skin complexions.
