Spring fashion: colour me happy

After living through a difficult year, which included a global pandemic, social upheaval and economic distress, embrace the simple things that help you feel encouraged and uplifted. The easiest way to do this is by adding colour to your day-to-day fashion.

For many designers, the inspiration for their spring collections looked ahead optimistically. The popular yellow trend seen on the runways not only reflects the designers’ hope for the future but it also reminds us that warm, sunny days are on the horizon. Prada, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Kenzo and Valentino all featured vibrant yellow, often paired with warm colours like, red, orange, and caramel brown.

Pantone released their ‘Colour of the Year’ for 2021, featuring two hues that evoke resilience and hope. ‘Illuminating’ yellow and ‘Ultimate Gray’ are said to represent sunshine coming in as clouds disperse.

Whether you throw on a bright yellow coat for spring or pick up this hue in a blazer to be on trend, you’ll find that the yellow separates will brighten both your look and your outlook!
