Color Trends Spring/Summer 2010

If you wonder what are the 2010 spring/summer season's color trends and what you should buy, you don't have to worry. Designers came up with a melting pot of trends and influences. As spring means life, color, optimism and hope, the colors used by fashion designers were natural and vivid. Brights and pastels, from pink and violet to turquoise and dried herbs, everything is possible this spring. Still, they kept the everlasting black and white.

Taking a look at the spring/summer 2010 runway collections, it seems that we'll have a green-based season, though also prevalent are pinks, blues or browns.


When we say spring and summer, we think to a nice vacation on a beautiful beach. Turquoise is a luminous color inspired by water and sky (Carlos Miele).
This is the top color this season, that can be successfully mixed with a brilliant blue, Amparo Blue (Yves Saint Laurent), warmer than the one we are accustomed to. Emporio Armani presented a colorful collection with petrol blue jackets and combinations of tomato red and turquoise or fuchsia and orange.
Violet, the color of spring blooms, a cross between lavender and purple gives a romantic touch to our wardrobe (Oscar de la Renta).


Another color trendy this season is yellow, but not the one that we all know, but the yellow that makes us dream to a sun rising in the distance (Emilio Pucci, Versace).
We shall also find Coral Fusion, a color that has already been a big trend in spring/summer 2009. This is a warm peachy orange, reminding us of the tropical sunsets (Sonia Rykiel, Karl Lagerfeld).

Tomato purée

Every season, red shades are in trend. Is the eternal color that never comes out of fashion. Tomato purée will be this season's red, spicing up our wardrobes (Elie Saab, Isabel Marant). For a retro look combine it with turquoise.

Pink champagne

After this burst of colors, we must mention the neutral tones, starting with Pink champagne, a light, fresh and delicate pink, that can be easy associated with Tomato Purée and Amparo Blue. (Antonio Marras and Fendi).

Tuscany, Dried herb and Eucalyptus

Three more colors come to complete this palette of neutral tones. Tuscany, a warm beige that can be mixed with dynamic colors such as coral or purple (Emilio Pucci, Chloé). Dried herb is a green hue, somewhere between raw green and khaki, a color that can be easily associated with other colors in the palette (Balmain). Eucalyptus is a shade of pale, soothing green (Valentino).
