Summers come with blessings of a blissful season, full of colors and life. Spreading its glory everywhere, the sun touches every plain on the planet. Then why let our wardrobes stay in the shadows? Here are some summer colors to jazz up your outfit choices.
If you’ve been a firm believer of pink is for girls and blue is for boys, you need to get your facts straight. Pink gained popularity as a feminine choice in the early 1900s. Apart from that time, it was a neutral color—even a bit more on the masculine side! There’s no shame in seeing pink as a shade Bear Grylls would flaunt in one of the crudest survival adventures. With the rise of the millennial generation, there’s no single track that the popularity of this color has taken. But mind you, this isn’t the candy pink that little girls like to decorate their room with. It’s a subtle pastel shade that looks as classy in polo shirts as in blazers. Dense isn’t always the safe choice; give washed-out pink a try!
Monochromes are not the only neutral choices because sage green is sharing their place now. From whites to black, blues and even brighter yellows and pinks, this color goes perfectly well with all. This is not one of those shades that your eyes will take long to adjust to; buy one article in this green and see how safely it blends with the rest of the wardrobe! Truth be told, this season just can’t have enough of this beautiful green. Throw on a plain white tee and pull on sage green pants, and you’re ready to run on the ramp.
True to their origins, the Gen-Z’s always come forth with a surprise that your sense won’t be prepared for. Think of the one color that defines shock for you; say yes to YELLOW! Born in a landscape that was native to technology, this generation is always one step ahead of the rest of us and so are their color choices. Warm and dense, the shades of mustard-yellow that youngsters from this generation adorn have been a raging success in stores and shows. Be it with dusky skin tones or fair ivories, this color complements your skin perfectly!
Red is the color of energy, power, and strength, and here’s the obvious one: blood! Think of how the blood gushes in your veins when you experience an adrenaline rush and that’s exactly the effect that varsity red has on us. If there’s any primary color that’s as much old school as new, it’s varsity red. Been raging popular for decades now, it’s still a sophisticated choice to go for casual wear and formal ensembles. Rebellious in tones, the fiery nature of this color doesn’t succumb to any storm and makes you steal the show any day.
If you don’t have a taste for pastel purple, you need to reevaluate your color choices. The most underrated yet the most serene of shades; this color speaks of class and sobriety. Beautiful in all shades, you can pair all your purple tops and blazers with whites and walk out looking the definition of modern chic. With a tint of color, this shade is closest to neutrals like muted beige and grays but without the dullness of the latter.
