Summer is well under way, giving you a little more time to refresh your closet with vivid color and put away the muted tones of winter. This season, the catwalks waved farewell to last year’s pastels and saw a return to bold hues that will effortlessly up your summer style game. So to ensure you’re hitting the right fashion notes, here’s our top four colors to wear this summer.

Indigo Blue

Not quite electric — and not navy either — indigo is the perfect pop of color for fashionistas who prefer to keep their style subtle. Appropriate for almost every occasion under the sun this summer, indigo blue will look great on all skin tones and complement almost any design. Think feminine ruffled dresses, flowing maxi dresses, striped shirts, and tasseled suede bags.

You’ll represent the height of fashion for just about any summer occasion in a fabulous indigo blue dress.


Buttercup Yellow

Be the golden girl this summer in strong yellow tones that will set you apart from the crowd and show off that glorious summer tan. Take note from Giambattista Valli and Valentino Couture, and try rich mustard tones that will look sensational in a maxi design for evening or your summer holidays. If that’s too bold a statement, then try a pretty off-the-shoulder top in soft yellow or pair a casual look with a popping yellow bag or shoes. This sunny-hued top from Knot Sisters available at Bloomingdale’s through can enliven any pair of jeans or shorts.

Bright Red

Though not a shade usually associated with the summer months, it seems that fire-engine red has snuck its way onto the catwalks of some of the most iconic designers this season. Whether it was bold color-blocking at Givenchy, subtle accents at Dolce & Gabbana, or a full splash of red on clothes and accessories as seen at Lanvin, there’s no denying that red is in for summer. A pair of cigarette pants, hair accessory or bag will be an easy way to add this color to your closet this summer.

Dusty Pink

It wouldn’t be summer without adding a splash of pink to our wardrobe — there’s just something so feminine and appropriate about the hue. This year, the focus is on soft salmon shades, subtle corals, and dusky pink blushes. House of Herrera gave the trend a modern spin with floaty sheer designs, cool cut-outs, and girly ruffles. Pale pink tops prove to be the least intimidating option if pink isn’t your favorite, but if you’re a Barbie girl through and through, then proudly pull on a dusty version of your favorite shade in this season’s ruffles or lace. This Bardot off-the-shoulder dress, available at Bloomingdale’s, shows the subtle elegance you can exude this summer when you want to look pretty in pink.
