Color Coded: This Season’s Hautest Shades


stylish backpacks

Put your pastel shades on pause because it’s time to turn up the brights for summer. The top designers chose vivid hues for their color palettes last fall when showcasing their spring-summer 2013 collections, and while it may seem overwhelming to incorporate these shades into your signature look, we promise it’s not! One of the top colors we’re loving this season is canary yellow—but we promise you won’t look like Tweety Bird. Pick a piece like the chic blazer spotted on the Alice & Olivia runway and pair it with dark denim for the office. Next up among our colors to covet is orange. Choose a bright orange with a bit of a burnt hue to it like the shade seen at Sophie Theallet—you’ll be able to continue rocking it into autumn. Girly girls, rejoice—fuchsia was a favorite on the spring-summer runways. The darker the pink, the more sophisticated the look—we love the hues spotted at Jenni Kayne. Now you have your color palette, so start matching! P.S. Need another reason to love bright colors? These statement shades will boost your tan!

With so many style choices this season, selecting a trend that fits your look can be a daunting task. Luckily, U by Kotex® + GLAM have teamed up to put together their summer favorites for you. Get inspired, and remember, all you have to do next is try it for yourself!
