Turn heads with our summer brightsMay 17, 2018 2003 min reading Unisex
Now that the grey skies are beginning to clear, it’s time to inject some colour into your spring/summer retail collection. This year’s international catwalks were awash with all the brightest shades of the rainbow, with Marc Jacobs and Versace leading the womenswear pack, while Vetements and Gucci lit the path for the menswear market.
As the colour blocking trend is now bigger than ever, there’s no better time to stock up on Whispering Smith’s new season wholesale garments. For the fearless fashion frontrunners out there, we recommend merchandising our bright hues in full on, head-to-toe looks. Earn bonus style points by colour clashing vivid shades like pink and orange for a contemporary take on the trend. For those just looking to dip a sartorial toe into this bold fashion, however, we suggest starting small; accessories are the perfect way of doing this. Take, for instance, a bright red cap and team it with your staple denim pieces to add interest to a classic look. Alternatively, an electric blue backpack would have the same uplifting effect on a plain white tee worn with skinny jeans.
If you’re wondering which hues best complement each other, look to the colour wheel for help. Any hues that are directly opposite each other on the wheel will always be in harmony, so forget your grandma’s well-meaning advice that “blue and green can never be seen”. It’s just about finding the perfect shade.
The real power player of the season, though, has got to be yellow in all its glorious forms. Whether you opt for a zingy lemon or a more muted mustard, in all-over prints or solid statement colours, you can be sure that your customers will keep coming back for fashion’s hottest shade.
So, whether you’re looking to top up your SS18 range with just one key fashion colour or the whole vibrant paint box, you can be sure to find inspiration here at Whispering Smith.
