It’s just a little over a month until the first day of Spring! And I can not wait. I always love welcoming spring. A) It’s my birthday. And B) it’s a season full of new possibilities. When I start to think about spring, I always think about color. Incorporating new color into your wardrobe is an easy way to update for the season.

The top color trends for spring 2020 are a mix for everyone. There is bold, vibrant color as well as sweeter and earthier shades. I’ve listed all of them in categories below to get you started!

Bring on the Blues

Pantone, the color authority in fashion, declared Classic Blue the color of the year:

“Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

But it’s not just bold, classic blue that is popular. Softer blues, reminiscent of washed denim are also a huge trend. As is navy, which is a great alternative to black for Spring.

mellow (and not-so-mellow) yellow

I’m always happy to see yellow on trend, because it’s my favorite color. This spring, Pantone says there are two very different yellows that are popular: a more pastel, lemon yellow and richer mustard-gold.

reds for all

A classic red never goes out of style. So it feels weird to say it’s a color trend for Spring. But Pantone is saying a bright red is big for Spring. An earthier version of red is also popular: Pantone says it’s called Cinnamon Stick, which is essential a warm, reddish-rust hue.

orange you happy it’s spring?

Bright orange was popular last year and it’s continuing into spring. Not a fan of the vibrant shade? Try it’s softer and more pinkish sister, coral.

purple passion

Purple is also big for spring. Pantone says a bold grape is the popular shade. But I honestly prefer a softer lavender or lilac. I say go for what you feel good in!

green machine

There are two very different greens that are big for Spring 2020: a more vibrant, aqua green and an earthier more olive green. Of course, being green is always in style. I love seeing so many brands being more eco conscious with their designs and packing.

Neutrals forever

Not a fan of color? Don’t worry. There are plenty of neutrals for spring. Pantone says the biggest neutral color trends for spring 2020 are white (my favorite), gray and khaki. But when it comes to neutrals, anything goes. My favorite way to wear neutrals is from head-to-toe for a monochromatic look.

I hope this color report helps you as you start to plan your Spring outfits! And if you’re part of my YouTube fam, I’ll have a whole video on Spring Color Trends out on Thursday! Not part of the fam yet? Subscribe here to stay updated!
