Raspberry - Ah, raspberry. Deeply saturated, bold and feminine, you are a touch of sophistication in this color palette, like the cool Aunt who always has gum. Shown everywhere from Jil Sander and Pucci to Salvatore Ferragamo, raspberry somehow manages to evoke a softness even though remains a strong color. Wear it with grays and creams to let it shine on its own, or with other brights like tangerine which will only enhance the depth of its beauty.
