With neon hues and bright electric colors dominating the past few seasons when designers were looking for a “pop of color”,¬†the palette for color on the runways has shifted to the opposite end of the saturation spectrum. The new lighter colors feel more like a refreshing palate cleanser than old-lady chic, with youthful, modern touches like color-blocking, racy skirt slits, and edgy ankle boots.¬†Sugary colors which look like a delicious box of macaroons¬†look new and fresh for Spring 12.
