OUR FAVORITE COLOR TRENDS OF THE MOMENT

Kelly Green, Barbie Pink, Cobalt Blue, and Red are some of our favorite trending colors that are amazing to wear year-round. Flattering on all skin tones and packing a bold punch, these styles inspire confidence and look stunning. Sometimes these colors can be overwhelming, but wearing a minimalist silhouette (like those from Jennifer Hope) is the perfect way to flaunt some color without feeling uncomfortable.

1. KELLY GREEN

With Greenery as the Pantone 2017 color of the year, this is not a color to miss out on in your wardrobe. “Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment,” says Leatrice Wiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”

Our Jennifer Hope Kelly Green pieces are the perfect way to wear a pop of this trending color. Wear the white Adriana pant with a Kelly Green Kimono top for a fresh, chic Fall look. Or, pair a clean, white top with a bold dose of green as a mini skirt. Green is gorgeous on all skin tones, so you don’t have an excuse to pass on this trend ;).

The Mimi Romper by Jennifer Hope is the perfect way to flaunt this 

2. RED

Among the color trends, flamboyant Flame is the hottest color this season. This red-based orange that seems to be stuck between red and orange is equally the color of fire as it is of love. Whether you match it with neutral or vibrant shades, be prepared to turn heads.

Go all-out with fully monochromatic look with a red maxi dress or monochromatic top/pants and boots, or color block and mix prints, shades, and fabrics for a creative mash-up of the timeless color. Much like lipstick, there's a red to suit everyone.

The Daphne Lace Midi Dress and the Daphne Lace Mini Dress by For Love and Lemons features a stunning ruffle detail as well as decadent lace paneling that leaves a little to the imagination. The perfect way to don a deep shade of red. For a more orangey-red, try the Sloan Long sleeve dress by Jennifer Hope.

3. BARBIE PINK

Pink can be rightly considered the most attention-grabbing and luxuriant shade amongst 2017 color trends. It’s so bold and rich, having all traits to get you noticed.

Never had much affinity for the color pink? Be prepared to fall in love with the color of quintessential girliness this upcoming season. Apart from "Pale Dogwood" and "Pink Yarrow" acknowledged by the Pantone Color Institute as two leading pinks, tons of other pink shades were prevalent on the runways.

Some designers like Gucci and Valentino were literally tickled pink with pink. From other designers such as Valentino and Oscar de la Renta, we see a lovely array of pale pink, blush, fuchsia, deep carmine and more. At Gucci, even the runway carpet and lightning were breathing with sweet pink.

ALSO, don't forget to color block pink with red this season for an ultra chic look.

Shop the Thea bodysuit by Style Stalker, or the Lamb Multi Color jacket and the Ostrich feather coat by Shaci.

4. COBALT BLUE

A silk cobalt blue dress is perfect for the fall because it’s a dressier fabric and the sleeveless arm adds some sexiness. The red with the cobalt blue is a gorgeous color combination. Always think of small ways to add in more colors when you are wearing a one toned dress. These little details are what make the cobalt stand out and a well styled outfit! The bold blue is vibrant and fresh contrasted against fall’s earth tones, crisp and modern when paired with white, and sassy mixed with metallic gold. Bright cobalt blue is a runway favorite and really pops when paired with basic black.

Shop Blank NYC's adorable Sailer Moon hooded jacket to rock this trendy color as the weather cools down. Or, try the nave-hued Jennifer Hope Sammy Ruffle dress for a flirty night out. For a more Victorian vibe, shop the Tracie Dress by Alexis. 

As New Yorkers, we're trained to be repelled by color, but we challenge you to try one of this stunning hues to make a statement this season. 

Stay vibrant!
