Trendspotting SS’12: Crazy About Coral!

January 7, 2012

I’m loving the color trends for Spring summer 2012! Pastels are back in a big way but with an unusual twist. So ditch the boring pastel pinks and blues and take your pick from the Neo pastel: CORAL!

Most shades of orange are difficult to carry off- they go best with a slightly yellowish complexion but the lovely pastel coral is more inclusive. If you’re not ready to sport this zany color yet, introduce it into your accessories first and take it from there. Described as a delightful hue that falls anywhere between  a hint of  pink, a subtle shade of orange and in some cases, a small dose of peach,  it’s the most fun color to spend next summer in!

Our favourite designers and high street brands seem to agree:

Wear a brighter coral with light grey or graphite to offset it’s intensity or opt for a blue if you’re looking for a fun mash up. Pair it with pink, for a cute color blocking effect or the delicious caramel hue to create a soft contrast.
