:: Les Couleurs De Printemps ::

What does Spring remind us all of? Well, new prints, shades, cuts and obviously colours! The new colours are probably the most exciting aspect of any new season, as even though colours are not primarily what makes up an outfit, its one of the main factors. However, a season of colourful equilibrium of colours, stylists and designers prompt almost every single one of us to interest ourselves.

Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Colour is used to revive, refresh and defy conventional wisdom. 
Three very adaptable pastels sit on one end of the palette, and, because we are so accustomed to seeing them as nature's background, they can be creatively combined with any other color in the spectrum. Hence, these are seen as the coloured neutrals for the upcoming Spring. 

  • Placid Blue : similar to peaceful, picture-perfect sky, it manages to induce an aura of tranquility.

  • Violet Tulip: a romantic, vintage purple which successfully evokes wistful nostalgia.

  • Hemlock: similar to the verdant shade of springtime foliage, this summery green is very different from the green of previous seasons

  • Sand: a lightly toasted and amiable neutral, conjures images of the beach and the carefree days of summer.

  • Paloma: serves as a quintessential neutral, interesting enough to be worn alone or combined with any color for sophisticated poise.

  • Cayenne: a high-pitched red, adds a dash of spicy heat to neutrals.

  • Freesia : a blazing yellow; its warmth and energy help set the stage for Celosia Orange.

  • Celosia Orange, an optimistic, spontaneous hue.

  • Radiant Orchid : bringing the palette to a full circle, Radiant Orchid counterparts Violet Tulip.

  • Dazzling Blue,a scintillating, polar opposite to Placid Blue.

Pair any of these versatile pastels; Placid Blue, Violet Tulip and Hemlock,with a bolder hue for an current look. Also try pairing Sand with Hemlock for perfect, natural balance. Pair Celosia Orange with Violet Tulip for a captivating vision, much like the setting summer sun. Surprisingly, these strong, vibrant colors also pair well across the palette: They are perfect companions to pastels, and add confidence and vivacity when mixed with other bold colors.
