Finding the right outfit can be a great confidence boost. If you are someone who keeps up with current styles, though, you know that fabrics and cuts only make up a fraction of current trends. In addition, there are certain colors that will help keep you on trend and make your outfits pop. Today, we are going to look at 5 fashion color trends for the summer of 2018.
The first trend that we are going to look at today is the use of primary colors on the runway. With this trend, designers have gone back to the basics and gotten back in touch with the use of “Crayola colors”. In designs following this trend, we see the basic colors – bright yellows, brilliant reds, and cobalt. As the “Crayola” name suggests, these colors take a lot of inspiration from the standard crayons that we all used when we were kids.
The interesting thing about this trend is that it affects other trends on this list. Because they make up the basics, by playing with the hues and intensity of these colors, you end up with other trends that we will look at today. Check out this short sleeve maxi dress in a wide range of colors:
The next trend on our list is a summer 2018 look that leaked over from the spring season where it usually stays. If you aren’t aware, pastels are toned down colors. For example, baby blues, lavenders, and pale pinks would all fall into this category. Think of just about any traditional color for an Easter egg and you have a contestant for this color category.
These are beautiful options in their delicacy. Traditionally thought of as a more feminine trend, the summer of 2018 will be a little different because these colors are likely to dominate men’s clothes as well as women’s clothes.
On the other end of the spectrum, there is the idea of bright colors trending. Like many trends lately, this color trend is a comeback that we’ve seen before. Namely, the decade of the 1980’s was dominated by the use of neons in fashion.
While today’s fashion might not call for Cyndi Lauper’s teased hair, her experimentation with bright colors is something that would still be applauded on today’s runways. This trend is all about being bold and eye-catching. The great part is that, with a little confidence, almost anyone can pull this daring look off.
A trend that uses the trends we have talked about so far is the fashion statement of wearing one color. Typically, this style has been reserved for muted or darker colors. For example, a solid black ensemble has been relied on by everyone from a business woman’s suit to the original punk bands of the 1970s.
However, this season, you can elevate this idea by rocking a solid pastel or even bold colored ensemble. The daring look is bound to turn a few heads as you walk down the street and, for most of us, it provides a shocking change to our usual wardrobes.
Prints and Mixed Colors
On the other hand, though, just because solid colored outfits are in doesn’t mean that patterns and paired colors are out of style. In fact, you can get a lot out of a patterned outfit this summer. At the most basic level, you should try out using a couple different colors together. For this look, experiment a bit – if you play around a bit you will find what colors look good together and what colors look good on you.
Also, popular this summer are certain patterns. Checkered or flannel patterns, for example, are a rather trendy option.
