Summer can be considered a time to lighten up; reduced work, more vacations. Ideally, your stress levels lessen and you enjoy more time out of doors and under the sun.
This change of season necessitates a lighter wardrobe, for both clothing and accessories.
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 and 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 above.
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 the colors with four different bases; ash/blue, blue, yellow, red and two varying temperatures; cool and warm.
Other trend forecasters recommend wearing pastel colors, such as, lavender or pale blue during spring and summer, 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 world.
Women: Light-colored summer dresses with strongly pigmented earrings, bracelets, handbags and sandals or strongly pigmented dresses with light-colored accessories

Build Your Optimal Summer Wardrobe With C Color
Did you know there are over 16.7 million colors in the world? Relying on conventional color advice to identify summer colors that complement you produces inconsistent and contradictory results.
While one source advises you to wear reds or yellows, another source might encourage you to wear greens or blues. Additionally, these approaches do not take into consideration that all colors are created with a base of a primary color of either blue, yellow or red.
Utilizing the C Color methodology is the most accurate way to determine your optimal summer colors, due to the fact that the approach is based on a color gene within your DNA.
