The Top Color Trends For Spring Summer 2015 For Apparel & Makeup
Want to know what's in for the warmer months ahead?
Many of the trends from fall continue into Spring/Summer 2015. Fresh faced complexions and contoured cheekbones remain a major look. Dewy skin continues to shine, along with glossy highlights on high points of the face.
With this in mind, color guru Roseanna Roberts has offered up a color forecast for Spring 2015. For Spring/Summer 2015 color application is becoming more liberal and spontaneous, moving to unexpected places like the brows and the roots of hair:
Peachy hues emerge as a fresh, color-tinted variety of spring neutral, seen at Ralph Lauren and Nicole Miller.
These nectar-inspired hues provide a luminous, girl-next-door glow on skin with a dash of innocence. Cheeks and lips flush apricot with a touch of gold, while nails take on more intense tangerine hues that channel a playful, happy-go-lucky vibe.
Subtle, muted hues emerge as a counterpoint to the deep saturates of Fall Winter 2014-15, seen at Badgley Mischka.
These nouveau pastels are not the sweet tints of seasons past. This next generation of soft hues employs a dirty pretty edge, with hints of shadowy grey undertones. Pale dusty blue and lilac are favored varieties.
Leading the movement is the reemergence of red, seen at Zac Posen and Dolce & Gabbana.
Nothing says bold-faced confidence and self-assurance like an almighty red. On lips, the color takes on a slightly blue cast, evolving from warmer incarnations of seasons past. Cheeks also veer cool. Nails take on the timeless hue after the rainbow of polishes in recent years.
Gold makes a bold statement this season, seen at Anna Sui.
A little gilt goes a long way, with poignant touches of metallic shine in all the right -- and unexpected -- places. While this edgy application may not be for the faint of heart, subtle touches of bronze and gold hold appeal for sophisticates, while retaining a nod to the wild side.
Hues of blue continue to shine for Spring Summer 15, seen at Elie Saab and Armani.
From aquamarine to deep cerulean, strong focus is on the eyes, which shimmer in a variety of smudged, smoked, winged and washed applications. Matte, gloss and pearl finishes meet in various combinations, creating diverse, dynamic textures, emulating nature's most luminous, iridescent influences.
