Say hello to color. It’s one of fashion’s most talked-about trends and a refreshing change from all the neutral hues that dominated fall and winter wardrobes.

High-impact lime green, orange, deep red, emerald green, neon yellow, hot pink and electric blue grab plenty of attention whether worn head-to-toe, in surprising color combinations, swirled into beautiful florals and interesting patterns or paired with classic white or black. Veri Peri, this year’s color of the year, is a periwinkle shade with red hues that has been described as the happiest and warmest of all the blues.

Those who prefer more subtle colors get their day in the sun, too. Most of this season’s bold shades also make an appearance in pastel variations such as pale yellow, mint, baby blue, blush pink and soft lilac.

While color adds a spark of energy and playfulness to many of spring’s new styles, it’s not the only trend to embrace. Look for cropped cardigans, mini and maxi hemlines, reimagined basics, midriff-baring bra tops, crochet, cut-outs, curve hugging tops and dresses, platform and chunky sole shoes, style inspiration from the ’90s and 2000s and fringe.

Go ahead, drench yourself in color and celebrate the joy of warm weather fashion.
