Social media can tell us a lot about what the next trend will be. Remember last year’s shell jewellery trend that’s still going strong? Best of all, it’s not necessarily expensive items that appeared on the catwalks, but what everyone will want to wear… and ultimately, buy. Instagram has been loud and clear: it’s all about neutrals this summer. No matter your preferred style – sports luxe à la Copenhagen street style star or romantic Mediterranean vibes – the palette is going to be soft pastels, cream and beige. Take a look below at the key colours to wear for summer 2019.
A colour that’s transitioned from spring, this shade may seem like an odd trend at first. However, earthy tones that are more subtle than a fiery terracotta or intense as a forest green are in demand. It’s elegant and pairs well with everything. Although I’d suggest some brown sandals for accessorising, white and black goes too.
There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a beautifully colour-coded wardrobe in shades of cream to burnt biscuit. While the perfectionist in me dreams of this, in reality, rainbow is still my thing. Nevertheless, invest in some sleek beige pieces and it’ll be timeless. Much more worth the spend than that holographic sequin top I bought and wore thrice…
Isn’t this one of the sweetest colours ever? Pale yellow is back and I’m thrilled about it. I like to think it’s an evolution from Instagram’s lemon print obsession two summers ago. Join in the limoncello brigade with these picks below!
Shades of white
All white is so chic, always has been and always will be. It may seem like an obvious choice as one of the colours to wear for summer this year, but notice how the styles have seen an update. Or should I say, a reinvention of the 90’s?
