Summer Color Alert

Color has played a vital role throughout history. It has influenced countless cultures throughout the world and is viewed in diverse lights by society. The color red may be viewed as passionate love, however others may view red as a symbol of violence or danger.

This translates directly into fashion. Color is a dominate force in design, trends, and season transitions. This season’s colors embody neutrals intermixed with hues of peach, mauve, blush, and light blue. Tints, tones, and shades of these colors appear throughout many retail stores.

This Fashionista illustrates this color trend in three versatile looks. In her first look, she wears a Free People button-up, a classic wardrobe essential. Tinges of peach and light blue flow throughout the blouse, presenting a light, airy tone. The oversize blouse and pinwheel design on the back gives this staple an upgrade. The use of simple silhouettes combined with unique patterns and designs enhance any look for the summer. She couples the blouse with a pair of light wash jeans and finishes the look with a beige bag and oversize tortoiseshell sunglasses.

A monochrome ensemble is a simple and clean style approach for the summer. This Fashionista sports a plain gray flowy t-shirt over a heather gray wrap skirt. The use of neutrals in different tints and shades helps the garments offset each other. The Madewell tortoiseshell sunglasses and beige crossbody bag balances the consistency of the monochrome style.

Spotted wearing another wardrobe necessity, this Fashionista matches a light wash jean jacket with a plain white-ribbed tank top. However, the Aritzia mauve-colored cotton shorts with oversize pockets provides this look with a casual yet summer ready vibe. Completing the look with a rustic looking beige backpack and coordinating sandals, the outfit is polished.
