Summer 2011 Colour Trends

Store away your murky greys, browns, and blacks, because Summer 2011 is all about the colour! Here are three colour palettes that have caught my eye this season:

  1. Floral Inspired
  2. Easter Egg Pastels
  3. Beach Chic

Floral Inspired

The colour of the year was honeysuckle, so liven things up with vibrant, floral inspired shades.

Easter Egg Pastels

Easter might be over, but sweet pastels are still making a statement. Try soft yellows, lilacs, greens, and pinks – especially for your nails.

Beach Chic

The key to hitting the perfect “beach chic” style is to look stylish while effortless. Do this by pairing deep and rich colours with soft and delicate fabrics and prints. MAC has a new collection called “Surf Baby” that features gorgeous beach colours in tropical inspired packaging.
