Spring Summer 2024 Color Trends

Last week I shared Pantone’s color of the year – a soft peach shade called Peach Fuzz. But that’s just one of the many gorgeous new colors that have just arrived to brighten us up and make us feel excited about spring.

If you are tired of this dreary weather and the drab colors that go with it like I am, check out this brighter, happier palette for spring.

1. Rooibos Tea

Funny enough, I’m starting with one of the darker colors in the palette, but this is actually a great transition color right now.

It’s a red, but a full-bodied red that is imbued with rich, woody notes. Think of it as a nice combination of red and brown. I find this very natural and earthy. It makes me think of Sedona and all the big red rocks. I can see this color in hot weather along with watercress, the new green for summer casual wear. You could create some nice laid-back, relaxing, casual travel looks.

2. Orangeade

I love orange in the summer, and this one is sweet and tangy. It’s more of a red-orange. It’s described as having a fruity citrus touch and bold presence. I agree; it sure has a lot of punch. If you are not big on all orange, then a bag or a top might be all you need.

3. Watercress

Try adding this refreshing peppery green with a vibrant presence to your look this spring. At first, it looks military green, but there’s less black/grey in it. This has more life to it, and I’d be willing to try it. It’s a little more feminine than camo green.

4. Peach Fuzz

Peach Fuzz is Pantone’s Color of the Year. It’s considered a cross between pink and orange. This board shows it as more orange, but many beautiful things are on the pink side. I would like you to please take your pick. Either way, it’s very soft and will warm up your skin. I am seeing a lot of this right now.

5. Chambray Blue

This brightened denim blue color has more life than your basic chambray. There’s a touch of purple there. I think it looks good on everyone, and I love it with crisp, clean white.

6. Pastel Lilac

By far, one of my favorite colors. Lilac is soft, romantic and feminine like pink but feels more mature. This soft and powdery lavender hue is going to be a big hit.

7. Marlin

It’s like navy but not as serious. It’s an aquatic blue that looks great with tropical shades. This is going to inspire a lot of nautical looks for summer.

8. Lemon Drop

I always love it when yellow is in style, but sometimes it’s such a strong yellow, it’s hard for everyone to wear. This yellow is sugary, sweet, and zesty. I can see this with the chambray blue. It’s a naturally pleasing combo.

9. Mint

A second green. This cooling mentholated green will give your wardrobe a pop of color and is a breath of fresh air. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day coming up soon.

10. Vibrant Capri

I think of coastal Italy and the deep azure-colored waters of the blue grottos. I love this warm blue and think it will be amazing with Mint! You can’t beat it with white, either!

5 Ways to Wear Spring 2024 Colors

  • Wear one color head to toe for an elegant monochromatic look. For example, pastel lilac dress pants, tops, and shoes.
  • Mix two colors – I can’t wait to try Capri and Mint. They would make a great resort-look combo.
  • Add pops of color – If shades like Lemon Drop seem a bit too bright, maybe wear just a lemon drop scarf or sandal.
  • Mix up the colors in prints – This is my favorite way to wear Spring 2024 colors. I love the idea of all those gorgeous shades blended into one.
  • Pair a new bright with neutrals – Mushroom (midtone brown with gray), Northern Droplet (light gray) Quiet Shade (dark Gray), Brush(Nude beige)are the new neutrals. Wear these with the new hues to tone things down.

Here are two fabulous print dresses to show you what I mean. Aren’t these gorgeous?

  1. Hi Deborah,

    I love those KC vibrant capri ballet flats… but… I need wide widths. Sigh. I could incorporate the orangeade and watercress as colors for bottoms (trousers, skirts). But for tops, the peach fuzz is my best choice here. :) Thanks for the look into the upcoming trends for spring 2024.

      1. Deborah,
        Though I am a petite woman, my feet have always been wide. I have a big bone structure. I find Nordstrom has the largest selection of wide-width shoes. I like Vionic, Naturalizer, LifeStride, and Clark’s. Munro makes a lot of wides, but I find many of their styles that could be more appealing. Sam Edelman makes cute shoes, but they aren’t wide enough for my feet. I wish more stylish and fun shoes came in wide. A hard-to-fit size keeps my shoe wardrobe lean; otherwise, I’d be the next Imelda Marcos! :)

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
