Summer can be considered a time for a change of pace, change of appearance and change of scenery. Ideally, your stress levels lessen, the changes are reflected in your visual aspect, state of mind and emotional well-being and you enjoy more time out of doors with nature and under the sun.
This change of season and change of circumstances necessitates a lighter wardrobe.
Which colors are the most ideal for your summer wardrobe?
Today, we will assess popular color choices for summer fashion and explain how you can identify the optimal summer colors for yourself.
What Are Summer Colors?
Summer color trends change yearly. A search result will yield a variety of opinions ranging from yellow to blues to purples.
For example, trend forecaster and color matching tool company Pantone suggests incorporating the following colors, among others, into summer wardrobes, design and décor:
- Orange Red
- Royal Blue
- Moss Green
- Lilac Pink
The challenge with the above approach is that not all individuals wear the colors mentioned.
Orange, Orange/Red, Coral, Gold and Lilac Pink are only worn by a portion of the population.
The colors of yellow, royal blue and moss green are worn by the entire population, however, the bases of the colors must be taken into consideration, as individuals wear each of the above mentioned colors with four different bases; ash/blue, blue, yellow, red and two varying temperatures; cool and warm.
In addition, people often confuse the temperatures of colors. Makeup artists, stylists, designers and most others, categorize blues, purples and greens, as cool colors and reds, oranges and yellows, as warm colors and nothing could be further from the truth.
All colors mentioned above can be both cool or warm, as there are 16.7 million identified colors in the world.
Other trend forecasters recommend wearing pastel colors, such as, lavender or pale blue during spring and summer seasons, however, there is a common misconception regarding pastel colors.
Most individuals think pastels are light hues that are cool in nature. In actuality, pastel colors are defined as powdered pigments and are available in all colors, with the dark hues consisting of pure pigments and others, with varying mixtures of inert whites.
How To Wear And Use Summer Colors
Below are a few suggestions regarding incorporating lighter or strongly pigmented colors that are ideal for summer into your wardrobe and world.
Women: Light colored summer dresses with strongly pigmented earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, handbags and sandals or strongly pigmented dresses with light colored accessories
Men: Light colored suits with strongly pigmented ties
Light colored eyeshadows for brows and surrounding areas of the eye and light colored foundations, blushes, lipsticks for face, cheeks and lips
Lighter colored manicures and pedicures
- Home Decor:
Lighter appointments or patterned appointments, such as pillows, throw rugs or other interchangeable items to refresh your home for the season
Wearing and utilizing both light and strong pigments during summer months can be revitalizing, as these types of colors complement the ease of the long summer days and nights.
