There is something both incredibly earthy and soothing about the Spring 2019 Color Palette.
It’s hard to deny the appeal of natural colors in recent months, thanks to a flood of designers who refreshed them, revamped them and served them up in elegantly flowy silhouettes.
I’ve never really been drawn to neutral muted tones before but for some reason I just can’t get enough of them this season!
Shades of taupe, beige, white, sand, camel, terracotta, tabacco and dusty pink are keeping us down to earth.
The earthy color trend is really about more than just clothes though, isn’t it?! It’s a feeling and a mood. It says something about you without words.
A free-flowing cream dress or rustic floral blouse suggests something about your lifestyle—that you eat organic greens, you make your own flower arrangements, you take care of your skin and hit the Farmer’s Market at least once a month or (if you have been watching my insta stories) maybe you make vegan veggie cakes on the weekends.
It’s about the overall warmth and well-being vibe you are putting out.
We know colors effect us, come on, how many thousands of studies have there been on the topic- so it makes sense that in an era where we could all use a little calm and relaxation we are drawn to these zen filled shades.
Earth tones aren’t all about beige and tan though- earth tones also include ocean hues. Seafoam Green, Ultramarine, Seaweed shades and Clearwater Blue.
Just as the key to making the taupe-y shades look dynamic is by layering various textures and hues, it’s the same with the water element shades.
Combine them together to create visual interest. Pair a seaweed hued top with a seafoam green skirt, layer patterns and textures then mix in some other earthy elements that compliment- a little surf and sand.
Let them flow like water by choosing them in billowy flowy silhouettes that move with you.
The second you slip into these aqua-earth tones I swear, your shoulders relax a little, you slowly exhale and breath in an imaginary whiff of salt air.
Dreamy, soothing and totally summer chic.
