The kaleidoscope of colors that marks spring’s best is going to make you one happy customer
By Archana Aithal Rose
Consider it a blast from the past, the selvage denims from year 2000 are back with a bang with distressed, faded designs giving way to a dark and polished look. Seemingly tailored versions, in deep indigo and midnight blue to black, showed up on every major spring preview runway. Guess we gotta!
Solace London Gala Shirt Dark Denim
With an oversized collar, a cinched waist and military inspired pockets, this teams up perfectly with prints as well as dark selvage jeans. $215, solacelondon.com
Rag and Bone High Rise Ankle Skinny
With their skinny fit, and constructed in tech stretch denim, these dark indigo jeans, with a rinse wash, are poised for perfection. $210, garmany.com
Romance was in the air as pastels like powder blue, lilac, and lemon hit the London runways for spring, and even accessories tilted towards feminine hues. But with a twist: the ice cream tones were paired with strong structural details and well tailored silhouettes to cut through the sweetness.
Oscar De La Renta Gabardine Suit
This skinny leg, rose hued pant suit is tailored in wool stretch and features a sequined belt. Its silk charmeuse lining ensures that it layers without kinks over blouses and knits. $1,940, oscardelarenta.com

If head to toe hues aren’t your thing, a pastel accessory will keep you on trend. In Egg Blue, Pale Pink and Yellow, Coach’s spacious tote features a playful shark/penguin motif. $195, coach.com

Designed for a contemporary fi t, this shoulder baring powder blue design has rules and a clinched waistline for a structured look. The bell sleeves add a touch of whimsy and volume to the otherwise body con silhouette. $228, bloomingdales.com
It’s time to banish the blahs! Beige be gone and neutrals are now a no no for spring. Instead, bright, saturated hues made a splash on the biggest runway shows. From color blocking to drenches of shock monochrome, lines were awash in vibrant and bold colors. Endorphins anyone?
