This season is embraced with the heavy utilisation of eye-catching colours. From zingy to neon, tropical, bold and beaming; colours are ruling this season’s trends. On previous runway shows, we have observed a splash of sunshine yellow, some candy pink, fuchsia and even lime green, and these colours are becoming trendier to wear on the streets and in our everyday lives; as they work on transmitting this sense of newfound freedom. Famous faces are making these colours very trendy and fashionable to wear; from Kendal Jenner’s parachute track pants in red to Selena Gomez’s hot pink parrot printed outfit with glittery cats from Miu Miu, to Gigi Hadid’s yellow ensemble from the Sally LaPointe Resrot 2018 collection, and finally Bella Hadid’s fuchsia pink OFF WHITE suit which she wore to the CFDA Awards.
Bold colours somehow immediately establish one’s presence, grab attention and reflect a particular mood. They even work on relfecting the excitement and creativity of personalities.
High end brands like Balenciaga have employed such colours in their pants, bags and their statement heels which come in various vivid colours, they even worked on creating colour blocks through their styling of orange and blue outfits together. Céline similarly mixed and matched different colours together, such as green and red.
Colour has been a major key for brands like Miu Miu as well, so we have included several pieces from their collection, since several bold and bright colours could be observed in their clothing, and this could be styled in various ways. Green for instance was Miu Miu’s statement colour for this season; whilst reflecting the 40s trends. This bold green cropped wool sweater is an example. It may be paired with a Simon Rocha Asymmetric gingham cotton midi skirt, a Gucci crystal-embellished leather waist belt, Provenza Schouler’s leather clutch bag and finally a pair of pearl embellished flats by Aquazzura.
Bold colours have also ruled the markets of more affordable brands like Zara who have worked on mixing pinks and reds together. Moreover, Topshop employs several bold colours such as yellow, red, and orange to create standout outfits.
Pairing these colours might be challenging sometimes, so in this article, we will be sharing with you some advice on how to create outfits with these statement colours.
The simplest thing to do is to follow the colour wheel and choose colours that are opposite one another, such as going with red and green. This is also referred to as colour blocking. Here we have styled a Levi’s distressed high-rise straight-leg jeans by Vetements with a Fendi red cutout striped pointelle-knit sweater, a green large chain-embellished jacquard and leather Gucci tote along with a pair of white leather ankle boots by Gianvito Rossi.
If your seeking a brighter colour then go with this yellow draped silk-blend satin dress by Victoria Beckham along with an oversized distressed denim jacket by Alexander Wang, a dark purple leather-trimmed Tom Ford satin clutch and finally Vetement’s statement purple satin pumps.
Another approach you could follow is using colours that are next to one another such as pink and red. This could work with some high-rise wide-leg jeans by Marni along with a cropped two-tone wool cardigan in pink and red hues by AlexaChung, a Bottega Veneta tomato red leather pouch and a pair of pink velvet Mary Jane pumps by Miu Miu.
Another example would be this look which consists of Chloe’s mint pleated crepe culottes with a Brunelli Cucinelli light-blue cashmere cardigan; which could be styled of-the-shoulders, a pair of baby pink embellished satin pumps by Miu Miu, a Lugano leather and stainless steel watch by Larsson & Jennings and a sky-blue textured-leather clutch by Kara to complete the look.
