2019’s Women's Spring Colour Trends And Where To Find Them
From eye-watering neon brights to mood-boosting lilacs and sweet sage, discover the trending hues guaranteed to spark a brand new you...
New York, London, Milan and Paris have done their part to set our style expectations for the rest of the year and inspire our near fashion-future - but we're determined to start dressing for then, now. As soon as luxury brands hit the runway with the latest new season looks, you can be sure that the High Street will soon follow to offer the rest of us an inspired and more affordable slice of the sartorial pie. For those looking to jump right in, the quickest and easiest way to get a head start is to find your saturation point with a hefty smack of day-brightening colour - and luckily there's tonnes of tones to get excited about. To help you navigate your way through the seemingly endless spectrum, we've curated a selection of the most popular shades on our shopping hit list. From highlighter bright neons (the reigning retro champ) to shades that double up as cabinet spices, shopping for the season has never felt so fresh and vibrant.
So, how bold will you go? Venture bravely over the rainbow with our essential edit of standout shades.
Just one glimpse of this hyper-pigmented orange-pink makes us feel like we’ve just been cast in an HD remake of Finding Nemo or, like we're, you know, juicing a fresh grapefruit. Whilst our references may feel obscure, this colour's context is anything but - Living Coral is Pantone's colour of 2019, after all. Vibrant, energetic and aquatic; it's the easiest way to make a statement on dry land.
Light Lavender/ Lilac
Here is a pastel we can shamelessly support for this spring. It’s fresh with a floral tone that still feels original and innovative. Clash with beige to give it grounding in your every day, or complement with candy pink and sherbet lemon for a summer sundae of shades that packs a pastel punch.
This season we’re seeing a slew of greens all over the runways and they’re all giving us a different feel. This retro sage shade is somehow evocative of both your Grandma’s 1970's kitchen cabinets and nostalgic childhood memories of summer's spent slipping on sea-side rocks, all at the same time. But even though now we're all grown up, we love getting lost in the homely but avant-garde essence of it all. Apply liberally to ribbed knits, satin dresses and accessories.
Seems we can't and won't get away from neon anytime soon. Good thing we don't want to. Besides, they go perfectly with an ‘April and onwards’ tan. The biggest are yellow, orange and green right now. Go ahead, pick your potent pigment.
Another pick from the Pantone palette, Pink Peacock is feminine, sultry and powerful. We’re dreaming of wearing it on swathes of satin, perfect for days spent mingling at a garden party at home or dining al fresco abroad. But why dream when you can buy?
Countless studies show that colours can affect your mood- and if that’s the case, this one makes us feel radiant. Emanate an aura of warmth and wellness from the inside-out with this comforting but trendy tangerine tint.
We typically see green as a colour that amplifies nature, but this shade looks like nothing of this earth. Be bold and brazen with this colour and people will gasp as you walk in the room with this UFO (unapologetic, fashionable outfit).
This colour goes by a few different names (including rose pink) and can be tricky to search for while shopping online, but luckily we’ve complied a short list to guide you on your way. Subvert the usual connotations of the tone, adopting the ultra-femme tone on wide leg denim and sports-style hooded sweatshirts for a look that's equal parts sweet and street.
