Just last year cobalt blue was the color. it is still there but the trend is moving to softer blues just like the new Cornflower, China blue and sky-blue. Actually, any shade of blue does including chambray and denim. Softer blues are showing in all print teams. Geometrics florals, stripes and abstracts.Don’t just forget about all-important Timeless Navy this year. It complements any color.
Start the summer off with primary tints – RED, BLUE and YELLOW. Include a bright PRIMARY GREEN along with the start of a lovely summertime. The primary colours work with NAVY in gorgeous stripes, dots or simple spaced flowery motifs. Let’s move on to the hot colors from the colour wheel making use of every tone of tangerine and red coral, gorgeous pinks from bubblegum to deep fuschia and warm citrus yellows.

IT’S BACK ONCE AGAIN TO THE 70’S. Believe suede dresses, funky patchwork prints, crochet vests, high-waisted wide-legged culottes, calf size dresses, colour blocking, jumpsuits, platform shoes, and fringed jackets.
Change into Spring with smooth (occasionally dirty) pastels. Smooth pink, peach, mint, sky blue, butter yellow, lavender, lilac and aqua. Blend with much deeper sherbet pastels for a brighter look or match neutrals like sand, dove grey, toasted almond and cinnamon for a more sophisticated look. As period advances pastels can perhaps work with brights or deep tropical colors for interesting comparison.
