Afropunk Festival’s street style puts all the other festivals out of the spotlight. The festival has everything from glorious colorful ensembles that celebrate the African heritage to insanely beautiful curly hair and glittery makeup looks. Attendees had two days to enjoy the performances of Solange, Princess Nokia, SZA, Thundercat, Sampha, Raphael Saadiq and more. But the real show was among the cool kids in the audience who flaunted the most striking ensembles that you couldn’t find at any other place but at the Afropunk.
The event took place at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park and closed out the street fashion for this summer. At the festival, there was a pure positive energy without phobia and discrimination. Besides the impressive street fashion, the festival supports body-positivity and diversity. There were outfits that showed a lot of skin but there was no ageism, sexism, ableism, homophobia transphobia or fatphobia to stand in the way. After all, only bold personalities can pull off such an impressive outfits.
Afropunk welcomed many musicians and activists this year. It was hard to tell who’s popular among the attendees because everyone looked like a real star. The electric colors, mixed prints, and variety of accessories made the outfits hard to miss. Many people complimented their radiant attire with bold lipsticks in neon hues that looked amazing on their melanin infused complexion. The hairstyles were as vibrant as the makeup.
Although the summer is almost gone, these outfits will make you forget that fall is knocking on the door. It’s amazing how vivid colors, striking patterns, and cool street fashion can brighten up your day. You’ll instantly feel yourself after looking at these outfits. Feast your eyes on the show-stopping street style moments from the Afropunk 2017.
In terms of color, we are going to have lots of fun in the Fall/Winter 2017 season. Opposite of the cold weather, the fall/winter color palette is much warmer. The most popular color for the upcoming season according to the Pantone Color Institute is the dynamic Grenadine. The Grenadine is a vibrant shade of red that gets all the attention. Besides the Grenadine, the classic red color will also dominate in the fashion girls’ fall/winter wardrobe. Speaking of vibrant colors, the Autumn Maple is a gorgeous burned orange hue that will be in high demand in the upcoming season.
Experts advise you combine these attention-grabbing hues with classic autumnal and winter colors such as Neutral Gray, Navy Peony, Butterum and Tawny port. The Butterum is a perfect fall mixture of cream and camel tones. The mega-popular millennial pink is known under the name Ballet Slipper and is a gorgeous dusty pale pink hue perfect for fall and winter. Ballet Slipper, Neutral Gray, and Butterum are the lightest colors in the palette. These neutral colors are easy to pair with deeper and stronger hues.
A huge surprise on the fall/winter runway shows was the neon green color. Designers showed entire outfits painted in this electric color. Like we said earlier, in the upcoming season we should expect much brighter colors than we normally have in that time of the year. Another unexpected dynamic color from the fall runway shows is the turquoise. Designers showed everything from dresses to coats in this amazing color. We normally wear turquoise in the summer but starting from this fall that is about to change. The hot fuchsia hue that was extremely popular this summer isn’t going anywhere as well. Many designers showed gowns in this vibrant color. Fuchsia might be the color of the eveningwear in the Fall/Winter 2017.
Take a look at the vibrant color trends for the Fall/Winter 2017.
While Pantone’s colors for spring 2017 were gorgeously evoking, just wait to see Pantone’s top 10 fall 2017 fashion colors from New York Fashion Week! Rich and extremely versatile, Pantone’s colors for the upcoming colder seasons will make anyone happy, from those who love more conventionally fall-inspired shades, to those who like to mix things and surprise everybody with less conventionally autumnal-inspired fashion patterns.
Although being predominantly linked to interior design, Pantone is synonymous with fashion too, as it often draws inspiration specifically from one of the most inspiring Fashion Weeks – New York Fashion Week.
“There is a commonality between the colors we are seeing on the runway in New York and London.” explained Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “However, individuality is evident and we are seeing a distinct difference between the shows in the two cities in the way these same colors are being combined.”
So, what are the top fall 2017 color trends according to Pantone? Let’s check them out.
#1. Grenadine 17-1558
Grenadine is one of the most dynamic and self-confident red shades, and we will surely find it everywhere from fashion to beauty (wouldn’t it be gorgeous, as a lipstick?). Described by Pantone as an “attention getter” color, Grenadine was featured a lot in the past New York Fashion Week fall 2017, especially in collections like those of Adam Selman and Monse.
#2. Tawny Port 19-1725
While Grenadine is fun, Tawny Port is the Red Family’s most elegant child, as its sophisticated, darker shade of red is just the perfect go-to for any fall party. Jason Wu and Nineties Queen Victoria Beckham loved it particularly, especially when used in fashionable solid-colored outfits.
#3. Ballet Slipper 13-2808
Pink will probably never stop being one of the fashion industry’s favorite colors, as proven by Pantone’s so-called Ballet Slipper, too. Soft and glamorous, this specific shade of pink will make any fall 2017 outfit trendy, elegant and jocose, which is just something everybody looks for when the fall season arrives.
Fashion designers Christian Siriano and Sies Marjan played a lot with this shade in their fall 2017 collections, often toying with different fabrics, too (this fall 2017 color is particularly suited for the upcoming autumnal fabric trends).
#4. Butterum 16-1341
Pink aside, nude and light brown colors will very likely never stop being huge fashion trends too, as suggested by Pantone’s Butterum, namely a fall-approved rich brown fashion houses such as Marc Jacobs, Rosie Assoulin and Creatures of Comfort included in their fall 2017 collections.
#5. Navy Peony 19-4029
The next two fall 2017 color trends according to Pantone are both autumn-approved and neutral, as they make it possible and incredibly easier to have fun with the other colors on this list. Navy Peony, as seen both at New York and London Fashion Weeks, is an elegantly darker shade of navy blue, which is also unapologetically vibrant.
Many fashion designers proposed garments dipped into Navy Peony, but it was with Gabriela Hearst and Phillip Lim that things went sleeker and multi-dimensional!
#6. Neutral Gray 17-4402
While gray is a universally flattering shade, Neutral Gray is Pantone’s trendiest answer to the fall 2017 neutral trend. Meant to be used either as “an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade”, Neutral Gray was fashion designers Thom Browne’s and Alexander Wang’s favorite shade for the fall 2017 season.
#7. Shaded Spruce 19-4524
Although Greenery it Pantone’s color for 2017, it was its sister Shaded Spruce the one that got featured a lot during New York Fashion Week fall 2017. Forest-like and charming, Shaded Spruce found its best translation to fashion with Brandon Maxwell’s and Oscar de la Renta’s fall 2017 collections, which used it both for solid-colored outfits or single it-items.
#8. Golden Lime 16-0543
With yellow and green being two of the spring 2017 trendiest colors, a mixture of them both had to be feature in Pantone’s fall 2017 color trends report. Golden Lime combines an earthy green coloring with a golden yellow, creating the cheerful shade one needs to complete the most neutral-toned fall 2017 outfit of the day with, as seen, for instance, at Tory Burch and J.Crew.
#9. Marina 17-4041
Greatly featured in Raf Simons’ debut with Calvin Klein, Marina is one of the forthcoming fall 2017 season’s most anticipated colors, as it is both cheerful and elegant. Perfect when combined with white, red, gray, and ivory, Marina will bring “freshness and brightness” to any of your fall 2017 outfits.
#10. Autumn Maple 17-1145
Last but not least, here we are with this fall 2017 “quintessential autumn color”, Autumn Maple. Evocative and richly textured, Autumn Maple is the it color of fall 2017, as seen on catwalks such as those of Coach 1941 and Proenza Schouler.

Pantone has finally announced its color of the year for 2017, and you will love it! After surprising us with two colors of the year in 2016, the Pantone Color Institute went back to its origins with only one color for this upcoming 2017, the official name of which will quickly put you in a good mood: Greenery.
Greenery, also known as Pantone 15-0343, is a bright, rich grass green that instantly reminds us of springtime, and which truly brings joy in whoever looks at it. The Pantone Color Institute chose Greenery as the 2017 color of the year specifically for these reasons, as it’s “symbolic of new beginnings”, and it really makes us heave a sigh of relief after the past (honestly quite forgettable) 12 months.
“Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate,” explained the Pantone Color Institute in an official press release. “A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.”
This time around, the Pantone Color Institute focused on a color that could evoke peaceful and harmonious feelings of happiness, and that could make us stop whatever we are doing and, for a few seconds, just enjoy the natural environment that surrounds us. We bet this sort of chromo-therapy is specifically meant for those who live in big, traffic-congested cities, which don’t get to see greenish scenery that often.
As for what concerns fashion and design, Greenery has a lot “to say”, too, as its incredible versatility makes it extremely easy to pair it with a great variety of different colors.
Greenery makes great color pairs not only with the spring/ summer 2017 color trends, including the top 10 Pantone colors for 2017, but also with Rose Quartz and Serenity, which were the colors of the year for 2016. Match it with bright colors, neutrals, nudes, pastels and metallics, and you are sure to walk out the door looking radiant and fresh.
Although the Pantone Color Institute does not choose its color of the year based on what kind of shades the spring/summer, fall/winter and resort collections will mostly showcase and focus on, its yearly influence is inevitable. Let’s take, for example, Rose Quartz. Its jocose influence is still visible today, and will, moreover, keep on claiming fashion victims throughout the forthcoming year, too (although in a more bubblegum shade).
We definitely bet Greenery will have its fashion estimators as well, and that we are about to be overwhelmed with plenty of Greenery-infused fashions soon!

Left with a fresh and spicy aftertaste? The action-packed 29 days passed like greased lightning? This is obviously post-fashion-month period finding us all tossing around the new fashion trends, new faces and the most memorable moments of the spring 2017 fashion weeks. Just another spring/summer fashion month came through with flying colors leaving behind a vivacious rainbow. What’s the prime mover of all this get-together? To identify and discuss the spring/ summer 2017 color trends!
Just as New York Fashion Week came to its end, the Pantone Color Institute was at the ready to declare those top 10 spring 2017 colors that are to lead the pack throughout the whole spring/summer season. According to Pantone’s Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report, the upcoming spring is likely to see all the colors of nature actualized on garments, bringing a mixture of vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors starting from that avocado-reminiscent Greenery and its more muted counterpart Kale to energetic Primrose Yellow and blindingly bright Pink Yarrow and Flame.
As was expected, blue was once more playing first fiddle bringing about whole 3 shades: the refreshing aqua Island Paradise, the classic denim-like Niagara and more intense Lapis Blue. Need something to mitigate that whole intense vibrancy? The spring/ summer 2017 color trends also dish out more neutral and peaceful shades of Pale Dogwood and Hazelnut.
Here are the top 10 fashion colors for spring/ summer 2017 with their official appellations, but also a range of other shades that we have noticed to appear on runways more often than others:
• Niagara – PANTONE 17-4123
• Primrose Yellow – PANTONE 13-0755
• Lapis Blue – PANTONE 19-4045
• Flame – PANTONE 17-1462
• Island Paradise – PANTONE 14-4620
• Pale Dogwood – PANTONE 13-1404
• Greenery – PANTONE 15-0343
• Pink Yarrow – PANTONE 17-2034
• Kale – PANTONE 18-0107
• Hazelnut – PANTONE 14-1315
The first place of the spring 2017 color trends goes to Niagara, a relaxing and soft blue shade, dubbed as medium-grade denim by the Pantone experts. Versatile enough to be matched with nigh every shade, this comfortable blue is quite potent to take us somewhere near the Niagara Falls to stare at that sublime scenery and listen to that relaxing water sound.
Altuzarra seems to be keeping this easy-going shade under his thumb serving up a range of python printed pieces in his laid-back collection inspired by David Lynch movie Wild at Heart. Next stands Carolina Herrera with a couple of denim-worthy evening dresses that seemed so lightweight albeit with ‘eveningwear’ status to them.
Though Niagara is described as the shade of denim, its whole splendor crops up when epitomized on such exquisite fabric as silk, like we see in the Emporio Armani spring 2017 lineup or on that peplum floor-sweeping dress at Alberta Ferretti.
However, what really raises the stakes for the leading shade of the spring/ summer 2017 fashion color trends is featherweight tulle. From Alberta Ferretti and Alexander McQueen to Marchesa and Zac Pozen, frothy ruffles in Niagara blue pulled off to dream up waterfall tableaux.
If the previous season’s special yellow was Spicy Mustard, it is Primrose Yellow that shapes up one of the spring/ summer 2017 color trends and for good reason. This invigorating and uplifting yellow is bound to warm the cockles of our heart, so sunny and joyful. We surely lay blame on that lovely flower primrose to light up the spring/ summer 2017 runways many a time and oft.
Primrose readily lent its color to Dries Van Noten, who dreamt up a large collection with Primrose Yellow either appearing on monochromatic pieces or else in the form of flower-like prints on some black or white staples. During Milan Fashion Week Emilio Pucci showed the enthusiastic characteristics of this color in droves whether on calf-length dresses or on ruched boots.
At Gucci, Alessandro Michelle presented Primrose Yellow from a more dramatic perspective on a ruffled dress with poetic sleeves, while Alexis Mabille used this shade on a couple of eveningwear and laid-back blouses, let alone those car-wash-pleated skirts creating pretty black + yellow colorblocks.
If that classic navy blue is not your cup of tea throughout sunny spring days, yet you are aching for some strong and confident blue, no ifs, ands, or buts here: Lapis Blue is what you are looking for. Being the natural shade of stone lapis lazuli, this blue shade, as if lit up from within, makes another gorgeous spring 2017 color trend.
We see Lapis Blue jazzing up the Salvatore Ferragamo runway at times even from head to toe wrapping the models with this shade. At Boss knitted dresses in Lapis Blue take a more beach-ready spin especially when matched with green flip-flops or bags.
At Max Mara a model sashayed down the runway like an out-and-out Queen of stone lapis lazuli; at Mugler’s shark-inspired runway show this confident shade made a small chapter, but chalk it up to Mary Katrantzou to bring together the vibrancy of Lapis Blue and her calling card optical illusion prints to reveal the whole magic of this shade, the third one on the list of the spring/ summer 2017 color trends.
Among the spring/ summer 2017 color trends, flamboyant Flame is the next color ardently crackling. This red-based orange that seems to be stuck between red and orange, brings about much love, fun and other fervent feelings. Whether you match it with neutral or vibrant shades, be prepared to make a splash around.
However, many a designer managed to rope us into Flame craziness. At Christian Siriano models were sent down the runway all wrapped with this gregarious shade starting from sunglasses and headwear to glorious evening dresses and high heels. At Oscar de la Renta we saw a smattering of cocktail dresses and eveningwear in Flame, while at Sportmax we were taken away by those drawstring jumpsuits bursting into flames.
Have a yen to see the most flamboyant spring 2017 color trend from a different angle? Go straight to Tory Burch, where preppy style was reigning on the runway, and waste no time to make tracks for Tadashi Shoji to enjoy Flame à la Japanese. More of this shade can be seen at Givenchy, Lela Rose, Mulberry, Akris and Baja East.
Don’t really feel like bidding adieu to Airy Blue? Replace it with a new addition to the blue family. Island Paradise, the shade of refreshing aqua, stands on the 5th position on the list of the summer 2017 color trends with its power to call to mind some tropical settings. This refreshing blue shade with some green undertones is likely to fully open up on some exquisite fabrics to create the illusion of aqua.
Lela Rose and Monique Lhuillier are strongly advocating looking fresh as a daisy decked out into fragile lace dresses in Island Paradise. At Emilio Pucci things take a more windswept spin through a couple of tulle dresses exposing a pretty symbiosis of Island Paradise and Flame, while at Christian Siriano evening dresses in this shade are running the gamut from a pretty embroidered cocktail dress to a majestic bathrobe-style gown.
Altuzarra seems to have a thing for blue family this time around. Along with python printed pieces in Niagara shade, he also brought to our view a couple of checkered shirt-dresses in Island Paradise shade. Find out more charmers in the freshest shade of the spring/ summer 2017 color trends at Escada, Loewe, Vetements and Barbara Bui.
The Pantone Color Institute could not but include this peaceful shade dubbed Pale Dogwood in the spring/ summer 2017 color trends, popping up here and there from New York and London to Milan and Paris. This neutral muted pink, as subtle as flower, is game for wrapping its wearer with some pretty innocence and purity especially when used in monochromatic outfits.
Starting from an exquisite velvet outfit at Baja East and a Marabou bomber jacket at Barbara Bui to a range of monochromatic pieces at Blumarine, Pale Dogwood proves to increase feminine energy in the air.
However, if the recently erupted trend to wear one hue from head-to-toe does not resonate with your inner fashion fluctuations, there are some off-the-track colorblock offerings from the leading designers. Take that chic rust red and Pale Dogwood combination at Banana Republic or else gamble on matching a Pale Dogwood skirt with an orange top much as we see at Adam Selman.
Next on the list of the spring 2017 color trends is Greenery, a tangy yellow-green, which according to Pantone Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report speaks to our need to explore, experiment and reinvent. Being the color of foliage, this shade assuredly spreads healthy lifestyle around.
The appearance of this shade was quite unexpected on the runways, but during New York Fashion Week when Zac Posen served up some pretty jacquard staples in Greenery, it was crystal-clear that this shade is going through the roof.
At Alice + Olivia it was illustrative of jungles, while at Arthur Arbesser we tackled quite a unique combination of a Greenery skirt with a white sailor jacket. Michael Kors showed the freshness of this shade in combination with another spring 2017 color trend – Lapis Blue, thus upping the ante.
A glance at the spring/ summer 2017 fashion month and it’s just clear-cut that the designers fired on all cylinders to kick-start a wide scale pink revolution in the fashion circuit. Ranging from amaranth and brink pink to raspberry and ultra-pink, the runway had them all in droves. Yet it was Pink Yarrow along with Pale Dogwood that came out on top to be included in the Pantone’s list of the spring/ summer 2017 color trends.
Standing so close to magenta, Pink Yarrow can be rightly dubbed as the most attention-grabbing and luxuriant shade among the summer 2017 color trends. It’s so bold and rich, having all traits to produce an adrenaline rush.
Valentino seems to be calling shots in the Pink Yarrow festival churning out a range of flowing dresses in this shade mixed with other pink shades and also some very lovely jacquard pieces. Balenciaga’s Demnia Gvasalia intensifies this shade closing it up with purple spandex pants.
At Zac Posen and Hermès, Pink Yarrow eveningwear came into view, while at Topshop Unique a model exposed an amazing head-to-toe Pink Yarrow look.
Here is another green shade illustrative of nature and healthy lifestyle that shapes up the next spring/ summer 2017 color trend. This army shade, ideal for any outerwear piece, can be effectively rocked both in spring and fall. Next to the vibrant and neutral shades on the list, Kale can assuredly serve as the strong background.
As expected, the spring/ summer 2017 runways saw jackets and trench coats in Kale bursting at seams starting from Altuzarra’s charmers with leather belts to Bottega Veneta’s chic coat to Mulberry’s daywear pieces.
Then it was Salvatore Ferragamo to show off the whole splendor of Kale on fit and flare skirts, while at Sonia Rykiel we were taken away by that dashing leather skirt. At Versus Versace, apart from garment pieces Kale pulled off to look equally as cool on lace-up boots, sexy sandals, handbags and even sunglasses.
Yet we confidently name Balmain as the winner of the Kale festival through its shockingly shocking cutout evening dresses and high-platform sandals. Check out also Dries Van Noten, Fenty x Puma, Louis Vuitton and Sacai for more Kale numbers.
Aching for the most versatile and all-purpose color on the list of the spring 2017 fashion colors? It is definitely Hazelnut, an earthy neutral coloring, a tone lighter than the natural hazelnut, yet so warm and gentle with some royal and elegant factor to it. Most importantly, this is a shade to work like a charm all year round.
The spring/ summer 2017 runway shows came to prove the versatility of Hazelnut starting from those slouchy, ultra-cool pieces at Baja East to some elegant options at Creatures of the Wind to sexy silhouettes at Cushnie et Ochs. Do not miss those street-style chic pieces at Zadig & Voltaire, where Hazelnut was shining with all its unpretentious glory.
#11: Metallic Silver
Apart from Pantone’s top 10 spring/ summer 2017 colors, there were some other shades that appeared so frequently on the runways to be fairly included in the list of the trendy colors for 2017. Among them we noticed metallic silver shining up hill and down dale right for those, who are ready to overstep their bounds and stand out in the crowd.
Whether you opt for foil-texture-imitating evening dresses at Carolina Herrera or have an eye on those street-style chic pieces at Junya Watanabe or else the club-friendly minis at Versus Versace, you are about to make a hit.
#12: Ethereal White
Whenever you see the white color, any way you slice it, it brings you the feeling of purity, innocence and light. We saw oceans of white bride-worthy gowns attacking the runways recently and confidently claim this color as one of the spring/ summer 2017 color trends.
More often than not white gowns done in featherweight tulle or delicate lace were exquisite enough to carry them down the aisle. Have a yen for bohemian whiteness? Alberta Ferretti’s white tulle dresses, gypsy-style skirts with crop tops are quite to cover it.
At Carolina Herrera we see a series of white day dresses and some luxurious wedding-ready gowns, while Chloe capitalizes on white dresses worth to rock en route. Christian Dior’s feminist runway show could not but showcase delicate white numbers, among them that tulle dress with strapless bodice stealing the show.
White purity continues throughout the whole spring/ summer 2017 fashion month from Cushnie et Ochs and Delpozo to Dennis Basso and Oscar de la Renta.
#13: Timeless Black
The prize for the most universal color indisputably goes to timeless black. No matter where we are, enjoying spring sunrays or trembling with winter cold, black works perfectly for any season and for any occasion. No wonder that we have included black in the list of the spring 2017 color trends proceeding from the fact that some designers have dedicated whole chapters to black.
Take, for example, the Christian Siriano spring 2017 runway show, where bohemian bell-sleeved black dresses and more elegant staples were alternating each other. Alberta Ferretti’s runway show was running over with Coachella style off-the-shoulder multilayered options.
At Alexander McQueen black sheer, leg-of-mutton-sleeved dresses were riding high, while at Brandon Maxwell it was all about sexy feline girl jumpsuits in black. Go to embrace more blackness at Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, Giambattista Valli, Balmain, Alexander Wang and more.
#14: 50 Shades of Pink
Never had much affinity for pink fashion? Be prepared to fall in love with the color of charm and sweetness come the spring season. Apart from Pale Dogwood and Pink Yarrow acknowledged by the Pantone Color Institute as two leading pinks, tons of other pink shades were also happening on the runways shaping up the next big summer 2017 color trend.
Just throw a random dart unto the pink color code and you will find any pink shade happening on the recent runways. Bubblegum pink? Look no further than Barbara Bui. Salmon Pink? Cushnie et Ochs sends it down the runway in some sexy lounge style. Finger-lickin’ good berry? Delve into Blumarine’s spring 2017 collection.
Some of the designers like Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Valentino’s first-time-solo Pierpaolo Piccioli were literally tickled pink with pink. At Valentino we see a lovely bunch of pale pink, blush, fuchsia, deep carmine and more, while at Gucci even the runway carpet and lightning were breathing with sweet pink.
Check out Alexander Wang, Bottega Veneta, Delpozo, Fendi and Michael Kors for more pink jubilation.
#15: Passionate Red
You know red is not for any wallflower lady. Woman with a past – here is who best fills the bill for red fashion. The recent runways shows targeted passionate femme fatales as well, thus shaping up another spring/ summer 2017 color trend.
From Valentino’s burning lava red flaring maxi dresses and Christian Dior’s feminine tulle dresses in hot to Comme des Garçons’ biggest ever bold red silhouettes and Emporio Armani’s soft red numbers, passionate red is an acid test in any woman’s life.
#16: Cognac Flavor
Cognac brown is just another shade that scored points by many designers, thus finding its place on our list of the best spring 2017 color trends. This is a strong and confident shade as if giving off that dizzy cognac flavor and looking especially feminine on leather and suede.
Among so many vibrant and hilarious spring colors, this shade of brown feels kinda out of place, rather aimed for cold seasons. However, through early spring days, cognac brown outerwear would look just zero cool.
Take some effective tips from the likes of Balenciaga, Balmain, Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, Loewe and Tod’s.
#17: Sweet Lilac/ Electric Purple
The family of purples is always welcomed in any season and on any occasion. Spring’s picks this time around are sweet lilac and electric purple as its bolder and more vibrant counterpart. These two shades popping up quite frequently on the recent runways round out our list of the hottest spring/ summer 2017 color trends.
We see the runway at Emporio Armani playing hardball with these two purple shades churning out a range of silk boudoir style pants and other laid-back lovely pieces. At Marques ‘Almeida sweet lilac painted some parachute jumpsuits and a chic feather jacket, while at Monique Lhuillier is was all about sweet lilac dreamy gowns.
Want to see the winner in the electric purple competition? Balenciaga is definitely reigning in here especially when those spandex pants come into view. Explore further to find more and more purple at Delpozo, Dsquared2 and Fenty x Puma.
