5. Multi-Colored Quetzal
Wow, I’m so interested in this color trend for Spring Summer 2015. This multi-colored trend reminds me of Quetzal, which if you don’t know is a tropical bird found in the rainforests. They have brightly colored feathers ranging from reds, to parrot greens, and blues to whites. Their feathers were highly prized by the Mayans for making jewelry. It seems like a tough trend to pull off. It can be used with prints, and try pairing those items with solids. I recommend sticking to softer patterns, such as water-color prints. They look very summery and bright, but don’t pop too much.
This is the trickiest of 2015’s fashion color trends. Pick a print with brighter hues like neon green or bright yellow, and pair it with another item of paler shades like greys, pale-blues, etc. to make it stand out.
6. Apple Green
Yet another green that is very in this season. Apple green and neon green have been in vogue for men’s fashion for a while now, but this shade has finally made its way into women’s fashion too this season! I recommend pairing this color with brown, black, silver or turquoise blue.
