Spring fashion steps out awash in color. From cobalt blue to canary yellow to radiant red, eye-popping hues are the season’s freshest take on fashion. The dress dominates in a variety of shapes and silhouettes. Florid frocks and showy shifts graced the runways at Balenciaga, Carolina Herrera, Gucci, Prada, and many more. Experiment with lively colors and pair with complementary shades for a strong statement. Accessorize with Lucite (hot trend), neutrals, and metal lics. The key is confidence. The brighter the better.
