Style is the key to really getting out in the sunshine for this spring. When you’re donning the right prints and surrounded by the loveliest colors, the warmth of these next months will feel right at home. But this season, we move away from the groundbreaking florals and bursting bright colors that as classic as they are, are more of the same. Spring is an awakening, a new start, and with that comes new, passionate colors that get you in the mood for Friday night cruising and brunch picnics in the park– new hues that feel perfectly classic.
That crisp fizz and smooth bittersweet undercut of flavor from this other Coca-Cola classic have us craving for more than its taste. A deep, dark fuchsia berry on your living room walls or in an A-line dress is still a splash of color with an alluring mystique and flirtation.
Traveling to the Old South sometime soon? The moss is green and overflowing from the ancient oaks in the balmy lowcountry where spring seems to have never left. Surrounded by soft gray green maintains that sentiment wherever you go, feeling like you’re in heaven even if you are miles away from New Orleans, Savannah, or the Carolinas.
Straw Sun Hat Tan
Throwing classic shade at the sun in a seemingly blase beige? We’re all for it! It’s a great canvas on which to embellish with other vibrant colors, or just cheerful on its own– after all, it’s not a wintry black.
Robin’s Egg Blue
Hatch into the spring with cool and calming blue. Of course we’d have to feature something of the quintessential color marking beautiful days ahead, and why not with a twist in a brighter hue? Reminiscent of the spray of sea foam or simply a true symbol of welcoming life back into the world, robin’s egg is nature’s finest.

You can already smell the sweetness of these blossoms just thinking of them. Traces of traditional white imply purity and light, a fresh color that like Jasmine or jumping into a bed of just-washed soft linen, gives us calm and relaxation.
Classic! But updated. Burnt orange feels more warm and inviting than red-based prints which can be perceived as costume attire. This understudy of polka dot pairings still brings that feeling of playfulness without being overwhelming.
