When you think about revamping your look for the warm-weather season, start by picturing the colour trends we saw on the spring and summer 2023 Fashion Week runways. Not only are the blooming flowers, longer days, and sunny skies enough to inspire a more vibrant wardrobe, but this season specifically brings with it a bevy of shades that will truly turn heads. Some of the hues of the season centre around bright, bold tones like kelly green, classic cobalt, and fiery red. And others speak to a slightly more muted pastel-based palette: think butter yellow, powder blue, and electric lilac. But regardless of where it falls on the colour wheel, all these tones signal a cheerful, playful approach to shopping come spring and summer.

With weather slowly beginning to mellow, warm days peppered throughout the otherwise cold season, and holidays on the horizon, draw inspiration from the colour choices of the spring runways. Designers like Valentino traded Barbie pink for the fashion house's iconic bright red hues; Victoria Beckham went for a soft powder blue hue; and designers like Jason Wu and Carolina Herrera opted for a soft butter yellow that can act as a neutral or a pop of colour, depending on how you style it. The list goes on.

It's time to look back toward the Spring runways for everyday wardrobe inspiration. Ahead, take a deep dive into the delicious tones of the season: fiery red, butter yellow, kelly green, classic cobalt, powder blue, and electric lilac.
