The Ultimate Guide to Spring's Biggest Color Trends

Apr 6 2014 - 6:00am

With Spring comes a whole new color story for our closets, thanks in large part to the primary hues that dominated the Spring '14 collections, making this season bolder and brighter on just about every level. Of course, if high impact isn't your thing, take note: soft pinks and yellow, green, and blue pastels feel just as fresh and were just as present on the catwalks. All in all, It's a pretty eye-popping, rainbow-hued selection that makes outfitting the new season all that much more fun.

Now, where do you fall on the spectrum? Take in every major hue from Diane von Furstenberg [1]'s fiery reds to Versace [2]'s icy blues — then tell us where you stand. Just scroll to see the color wheel in full effect, or jump right to the shade you want.

These aren't just demure kinds of pink; these shades have a touch more attitude. Think bright, splashy hues of fuchsia to amp up those softer pastels.

Blue Ice

Lighter shades can pack just as much of a punch as deeper hues. These icy blues are the perfect example — moody and cool, they're packed with attitude when you wear them as suit separates but decidedly more serene on an easy dress.

Not to be outdone, bold cobalt hues made their mark on the runway, too. These blues are all about getting noticed for the right reasons. Try them on a sheath dress at the office, or go bold for a party — in any iteration, you can't go wrong.
