Spring/Summer Inspirations: Color Trends

Hello Darlings, 

Well, I went through every spring fashion show on style.com and chose some of my favorite trends and looks - from pants, to skirt, to dresses, to top, shoes, and accessories - from which I will definitely draw my inspiration. Subtlety was a signature look this season, with styles that showcased beautiful hues, colors, and patterns.

3.1.Philip Lim; Rodarte; Roberto Cavalli; Christian Lacroix; Nina Ricci.

Nudes

Nudes played a key role on the spring '09 runways. The trend is subtle and sexy, but only when it is not over done. Meaning, if you are going to be wearing head to toe nude, well then you better cover some skin.

Zac Posen; Emanuel Ungaro; Derercuny; Balmain.

Whites

White has always been a summer color, since it is light and breezy.

Just be sure to have a Tide Pen to avoid embarrassing situations.

Christian Lacroix; Dolce&Gabbana; Givenchy; Givenchy; Zac Posen

Neutrals

Well, we all love neutrals, because they are just perfect, well at least to me :)

Givenchy; Zac Posen; Chanel; Elie Saab; Valentino; 3.1.Philip Lim.

Pastels

Simply beautiful... I love pastel colors, they are so girly and feminine.

John Galliano; Gucci; Versace; Dolce & Gabbana; Alexander McQueen.

Blues

Blue, although not my favorite color, it is all over the runways in different shades.

Karl Lagerfeld; Versace; Alexander McQueen; Chloe; Chanel; Balenciaga.

Metallics

Perfect for going out....

Pollini; Emillio Pucci; Matthew Williamson; Christian Lacroix; Antonio Berardi.

Sherbets Perfect summer colors... bright and loud. ( I am so obsessed with that highlighter pink Berardi dress)

Michael Kors; Dries van Notes; Sonia Rykiel; Christian Lacroix.

Stripes

I am not sure when they are not in style...

but I am sure loving a fact that they are so in this season.

Versace; Emillio Pucci; Matthew Williamson; Alexander McQueen; Roberto Cavalli.

Prints

Artsy, geometrical,floral...in beautiful bright colors.

I am so in love with Cavalli floral china-like print - so unique.

Nina Ricci; Christian Dior; YSL; La Perla

Sheers

Although, not a color... sheer is in, mostly in subtle neutral colors. It is definitely one of those trends that are difficult to pull off and is usually done wrong, but when it is done in a proper way then it looks absolutely amazing.

What your favorite spring/summer color trend?

 

With Love...
