This week, blog readers get an exclusive insight into three essential palette directions for womenswear featured in our SS18 Colour Forecast. Springtime Camel provides the base tone for the season, a sophisticated seasonal addition to the neutral family. Raspberry Sorbet introduces a punchy accent for bold statement pieces or a fun colour pop. Chambray Sky Blue is a key fashion colour for the season that takes inspiration from jeanswear while bringing a fresh contemporary feel to the denim wardrobe.
Staple camel shades are updated for SS18 with nude pink and tan tones. Warm neutrals lend a transseasonal feel to lightweight outerwear while tie waisted skirts and extended sleeve shirting fuse feminine silhouettes with sophisticated utilitarian colour-ways.

A key accent colour for SS18, vibrant raspberry shades bring a touch of nostalgia to statement pieces. Sugary sweet tones are complimented by layered lace fabrications and sateen sheen finishes with the girlish vibe further enhanced through pleated skirts and cuffs or voluminous pant silhouettes.

Chambray Sky Blue
Inspired by chambray qualities, sky blue shades offer an effortlessly chic take on the denim trend. Cool grey undertones reference summer jeanswear amplified by double denim styling or the addition of crisp white separates. Peplum details and ruffles introduce a fresh feminine element.
