With winter right around the corner, it’s high time that you stock your closet with the season’s shades. Here are the color trends that will make your winter wardrobe so merry and bright:
Red is the color of Christmas. But for your winter wardrobe, the Pantone Color Institute lobbies for Aurora Red – or a scarlet that lies on the cool-blue spectrum. This lively color has been the favorite of numerous brands, such as Chanel and Lanvin.
What’s yuletide fashion without some golden sparkle? For this reason, this festive color was spotted on the runways of Dolce and Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent and Kenzo.
As Pantone’s color for the year 2014, radiant orchid is a beautiful hue for your winter apparel. This shade is known for its subtle merges of pink, purple and fuschia. Take inspiration for this color by browsing through the orchid-rich collections of Bottega Venetta and Ellery.
If you are looking for a classy, uber-feminine shade, then mauve mist is the perfect winter color for you. This pale purple hue has the favorite on many runways, such as Christian Dior and Paul Smith. Since it is very cool to the eyes, you are sure to be the center of attraction.
Gray or Aluminum
One of the most popular colors for the winter 2014-2015 runways has been gray – or aluminum for some. Minimalist in shade, gray has been the color muse of big fashion houses, such as Hermes, Valentino and Louis Vuitton. Although it is dreary for some, it can be easily spiced up with a colorful pairing.
If you are a fan of dark, earthy colors, then cypress green is the winter hue you are looking for. Reminiscent of foliage and forests, this Pantone-approved color has been seen on the runways of Giorgio Armani and Stella McCartney. With its cool and refreshing color, it is a welcome break from the usual earth tones that you wear.
‘Tis the time for fashion merriment! Inject some holiday spirit into your winter wardrobe with these great shades.
