Summer 2020 Color Trends

The S/S 20 color trends can be summed up as "friendly and relatable" in that they convey a sense of ease. Spring 2020 Color palette “infuses heritage and tradition with a colorful youthful update that creates strong multi-colored combinations as well as energizing and optimistic pairings” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

From bold fiery reds to classic blues, vivid saffron to unexpected aqua shades, below we’re sharing the biggest color trends you’re about to see everywhere. Get ahead of the curve by shopping the hues right now. And if you know me you know I am BIG in color. Lol! So this is music to my ears....ahhhh...

Flame Scarlet/ Poppy Red

Bold, bright, warm and energetic, this fiery red hue exudes confidence and unquestionably makes a sartorial statement. 

Pippy red is one of those mood-enhancing colors that looks great on everyone. If worn head to toe, white accessories will perfectly enhance this tangy hue. If you're after a simpler look, try a poppy knit or top with denim.

Faded Denim and Sky blue

This blue shade is as reliable and dependable as your go-to pair of jeans. The approachable hue conveys comfort and ease and looks chic when paired with bold and vibrant colors.

I love a good shade of blue, so you can imagine how thrilled the rise of this sky shade has got me. It's easy as ever to wear, too. Try it with a white tee and grey jeans for a livened-up take on neutrals, or really go for it by mixing together a couple of varying shades.


This season brings us a range of green shades, but two are prominent: emerald and pistachio. Simply pick your favorite and wear it as a single piece with neutral colors like tan, cream, or black.

Last spring we saw lime green hues dominate. This year, it's more about a cool and refreshing aqua shade. Wear it with any shade of pink for the prettiest springtime look.

Coral and Hot Pink

Pink is coming in hot for Spring — from electric tones to bubblegum shades, reach for this shade when you want to make a statement. The key is styling it different: with sneakers, mixing it with black, or combining it with other colors like blue or orange.

Combining the warmth of coral with the delicacy of pink, this soothing, feminine hue is chic to wear both day and night—perfect for evening affairs when it comes in textured fabrics, such as silk, sequins, and tulle.

Saffron Tangerine

The vivid shade of orangey-yellow adds a bold touch to your outfit exuding an optimistic outlook. The runways showcased the flavorful shade in head-to-toe looks.


Yellow has been big over the past couple of seasons, but it's softening for Spring with paler shades at the forefront. From banana yellow to sweet dandelion, treat this color as a neutral and mix it with beige, black, and army green for a wearable look with impact.


It wouldn't be spring or summer without a heavy dose of white to get us in the warm-weather mood. And the S/S 20 runways were replete with head-to-toe blanc looks—varying in textures and shades from subtle oyster mushroom to brilliant and bright white. You'll never go wrong with the neutral shade in any fabrication from satin to lace.

The thing about color trends for 2020 is that they're kind of all over the place. Totally in line with the fact that we're in an anything-goes era, meaning individuality is key — thus, there are options to please a range of tastes, moods, and aesthetics. While Spring and Summer's colors are coming bold and bright, ranging from peppy pastels to ultra-pigmented colors, there's a way to give each one a try whether you're the type to rock variant shades head-to-toe, go for a vibrant colorblock outfit, or wear mostly neutrals but like to incorporate color by way of a small accent or accessory. You go girl!

That said, you should no longer feel restricted by or beholden to the color of this season. Instead, embrace them all! Or, just the ones that resonate with your personal style. Plus, you can find our collection of clothing and accessories to shop now, so you'll be ready to rock your favorite shades in the new season.
