I wanted to talk about yellow as a trend for winter and spring. During a period where black is everywhere and everyone is imitating looks on social media, people are looking for a way to stand out. Yellow has been that color that really stands out and its powerfulness makes you always do a second take.You can’t avoid it and it also gives you a sense of joy, confidence and will rock any look. It’s a color that starts a conversation, perfect for the networker or the person who wants to attract others.
2. Midnight Blue
It used to be a total no-no to wear black and blue together but fashionistas everywhere are embracing the look of black and blue, this is where Midnight blue comes in. It’s a mix of black and blue, not quite navy and not quite black, but it is extremely saturated and bold. Also, it is so close to black that it can be worn for situations where black is a must like formal events.
