Pair it with neutrals to lift your look, or style it with gray for the year’s complimentary combo.

Pale Yellow

Another uplifting shade to illuminate your summer style is Pale Yellow !!! I absolutely love this color !! It was not one of Pantones 10 Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Colors. However, on the Spring/Summer 2021 Runways. The color was just as relevant !!! The shade emerged as a microtrend during Fall/Winter 2020 fashion shows and was a big hue among brands such as Ferragamo and Acne Studios during the spring. Pale Yellow might not have the clout of illuminating yellow. But trust me it will be just as popular this summer in stores !! The hue lies somewhere between a pastel and a saturated shade, making it a good fit for summer knits and casual wear!!
