It’s summertime and while nature has put on a spectacular show with flowers blooming in splendid hues, the runways are not far behind. From vibrant pinks to earthy tones, the Spring/Summer 2017 colours do not disappoint. We put together a hot list of the season’s key colour trends. Here’s what’s rocking our world:
We’ve got another reason to love Hazelnut (barring the sinful chocolate spread). This warm, earthy shade is doing the rounds on the fashion circuit. It is an effortless intermediate colour that fluidly transitions from one season to another. Be it day or night, we’re liking our ensemble Hazelnut flavoured this season.
With shoes as our canvas, we played around with this colour in eclectic ways and the results are astounding. Gentlemen, keep an eye out for slip-ons in this tan shade that complement your casual attire with effortless flair. And for the ladies out there, make space in your closet because you have some tough choices coming your way! From strappy sandals, adorable block heels to embellished flats, there’s nothing this colour shoe cannot exalt.
Some colour crushin’ for the girls! Introducing Pale Dogwood – a subtle, peaceful shade of pink that epitomises all things pure and innocent. Reminiscent of that soft blush on your cheeks after a healthy workout (or the cute next door neighbour’s smile), this shade is gracing the runway in all shapes and forms. Sophisticatedly incorporated in accessories and footwear, Pale Dogwood can class things up in an instant – be it a power lunch in the boardroom or a casual Sunday grocery run. Stride magnanimously in strappy block heels or slip into perforated loafers for a long day out in the sun. Or do a quick and easy style update with a elegant clutch.
Understated ain’t your thing? Make way, then, for Pink Yarrow – bold, capricious and confident in its inexorable beauty. Make the statement of the year in the season’s most whimsical colour. It’s definitely not for the faint hearted. Test the waters with a pair of vibrant shoes, perhaps? Pair a minimalistic dress with kitten heels for a lazy Sunday brunch with the girls. Or go athletic-chic with lace-ups that combine two of our favourite things: velvet and pink.
Meet Lapis Blue: the colour making a splash on runways across the globe. Intense and unmistakably regal, the shade is resplendent in all its azure glory. The logical next step? Get in on the trend with some gorgeous arm candy or a pair of stellar shoes. While the obvious choice is a pair of heels in this shade, we experimented with loafers too. Pretty much anything goes with Lapis Blue. Fret not, boys because slip-ons in this hue are just the thing you need this summer for that air of careless nonchalance. The uber-hip espadrille sole makes the colour pop and how.
Denim lovers, pay attention. This laidback denim-like hue is the most prevalent on runways for Spring 2017. It’s catching the eyes of high-fashion goers and street style alike and we couldn’t help but follow this trend spreading like wildfire. Taking cues from it’s chilled out, cool vibe, it was only fair to experiment with casual shoes. Feast your eyes on these Tresmode creations in Niagara. Ladies, you’ll find yourselves serenaded with this intelligent play of texture, colour and print in these statement slip-ons. Textured sneakers for men in this shade get our vote for the trendiest wardrobe addition this season. Ideal to pack away for the weekend with the missus and explore unknown streets, we think.
With the season’s freshest colours now on your radar, the only thing left to do is paint your shoe closet brand new. Spring/Summer 2017 palette is yours for the taking. Seize it now, right here!
