The weather may not comply, but I say it’s time to swap out the the blah dark tones for spring pastels. And this year, those pastels are stunning. We’re not talking about wishy-washy yellows, pinks and greens. Not in the least. Spring 2018 color trends point to bolder-than-watercolor hues that are sure to brighten your day.
Read on for our top picks in each of four trending spring colors.
How to Style Spring’s Trending Colors
First up is a fun and bright yellow, named Meadowlark by Pantone. Yellow looks great on warmer skin tones and not so great on skin with cooler undertones. All is not lost if you and yellow don’t mix well thoug — you can easily jump in on this trend with nail color.
If you’re feeling bold, slip on a yellow pair of cropped pants. This polka-dotted pair from New York & Company screams spring fun. Wear them with a simple white top and nude sandals or loafers.
Not So Baby Blue
A few notches richer than baby blue, the blue of spring 2018 is ideal for layering pieces. Try a blue kimono to upgrade your basic pieces into an a head-turning ensemble.
You can also upgrade your jeans with a blue pleated skirt. It’s as versatile as denim, but a giant step up to your style game. Reach for a skinny belt to emphasize your small upper half, or a wide belt to play up your curves.
