Top 5 Colourways for SummerMay 28, 2021 362 min reading Unisex
As the seasons change, it’s the perfect time to update your clothing collection, particularly when it comes to colours. While the winter favours darker and richer colours, the summer is a great opportunity to lighten it up and take advantage of the emerging trends for the upcoming season.
If you’re looking for some inspiration to breathe some new life into your collection to welcome the new season, we’ve got 5 colours you need to include. Whether you’re looking for loungewear, summer dresses, denim or polo shirts, these colours will look perfect amongst your men and women’s collections.
Sage green is an enigmatic colour to try and pin down, as it can come it varying shades itself, ranging from light to dark. In some light it can look similar to khaki, and its diverse appearance means it will suit pretty much everyone, as seen here with our sage ribbed long sleeve top.
Introducing sage into your clothing collection can offer new styling opportunities for you to lift other pieces in your collection. For example, sage paired with neutral shades can elevate a tonal look, with a more modern finished appearance. For an everyday look, the colour looks effortlessly stylish paired with denim jeans.
Blue is a naturally very calming colour, often used in interior design for bedrooms and bathrooms to create a tranquil environment. There’s no reason this colour can’t do the same for your clothing collection. Shades of pale blue are not just reflective of the season, but also of your mood.
Choosing pale blue for your SS21 collection can give you a chance to upgrade the white and grey pieces for something more contemporary. Baby blue has a fresh appearance about it, just like this baby blue hoodie, making it the perfect addition to your collection.
Pastel shades of purple are the ultimate choice for the spring and summer seasons. Lilac is always a popular shade for this time of year, offering something a little lighter and brighter than the darker shades often worn through winter. Lilac can be incredibly easy to wear, with its subtle yet eye-catching shade, just as you can see here with our lilac keyhole playsuit.
There are varying hues of lilac to choose from, from a deeper lilac to much paler shades, giving you ample choice to update your clothing collection for the season.
Neutral shades are quickly becoming a year-round staple, but even more so in the summer months. Perfectly reflecting the lighter nights and warmer temperatures, shades of camel, tan, beige, taupe and mocha are essential for this time of year. Mix and match your neutral colours with pastel shades, opt for a colour block look or create a tonal outfit; the possibilities are endless.
No clothing collection is complete without neutral shades to balance it out, so don’t be afraid to add some beige to your basket! Our twill drawstring shorts in stone are the perfect example.
Your clothing collection needs plenty of choice and different options to suit your audience, so don’t be afraid to add in some darker shades, as they will still prove popular. Khaki in particular works great in spring and summer, and has even become a neutral in its own right.
Pair khaki with any other shade of green, neutrals or go bold with something a little brighter. Khaki also goes beautifully with metallic finishes like buttons and zips, as you can see with our button through midi dress.
