Seasonal recurrence obliges, the editorial staff must return to the trends flagships that will dominate the fashion of the spring-summer. Thus, it is after having painted the portrait of the star motif of the moment that the turn comes to raise the colors that will inject light into any self-respecting spring wardrobe. And if the omnipresent dark colors last winter do not resist the seasonal transition, certain pop chromatic palettes are renewed in the current wardrobe. Except this time the trendy colors of summer 2022 have the particularity of valuing all women, regardless of their age, their style or their morphology.
What is the link between colors and morphology?
No, genetics and cosmetics aren’t the only reasons that make you look good or bad, because that’s where colorimetry comes in. And for good reason, if the colors have the capacity to‘refine orthicken a silhouette, to weigh it down or on the contrary to offer it an extreme lightness, it is partly thanks to the psychological attraction that the latter exert on the human being in a completely unconscious way. A well-known feat, which also makes us perceive white as being the color that grows bigger the most, or else black like the one that thins better than other colors. The good news ? Neither white nor evening are among the trend colors of spring. So, let’s present the colors that steal the show.
What are the particularities of the colors of summer 2022?
Passion red: the trendy color that refines
Synonymous with passion, red inspires carnal desire with extreme elegance. Its hot peppers dynamite its composition and make red a color that attracts attention no matter the situation. Spotted on the catwalks of the spring-summer 2022 fashion shows, red was particularly present in the fall-winter 2022-2023 collections. Tinting a Gucci x Adidas sportswear dress, a Carolina Herrera formal evening dress, an Alexander McQueen leather trench coat or a dress with ostentatious volumes at Alaïa… Red sets the heart of the fashion world ablaze.
Side morphology, red is an ideal color for women who want to look slimmer without the need to put in the slightest effort. And for good reason, contrary to popular belief, black is not the only shade to refine the silhouette, since it is overtaken by red, and in particular carmine red, marengo and garnet. A double feat, then, for this star color of the moment.
