These 6 Colours Are the Key to an Expensive-Looking Spring Wardrobe

From street style to the runway and, of course, Pantone's predictions, when it comes to colour, there are plenty of indicators to help us understand which shades will be prominent for spring. Very Peri was crowned Pantone's colour of the year and is gaining popularity for spring/summer 2022

On the runway, minimalist ivory was featured heavily at luxury brands including The Row, Valentino and JW Anderson, while sunset orange was a key colourway at Prada and Jacquemus. Additionally, shades of sage green and tangerine orange are already being worn by several of our favourite influencers.

Thankfully, the one thing each of these colours has in common is that they all look extremely high-end and can be worn as a statement shade to create an expensive-looking spring outfit. We definitely know we'll be wearing these for the next few months. 

Keep scrolling to shop the six classic spring colours we're investing in for a luxe-looking wardrobe.


Classic Spring Colours: Ochre yellow



Style Notes: Yellow clothes and accessories always make a comeback in the warmer months, but it’s a hard shade to get right. Often, it can look too twee, and other times too garish. Ochre, however, is the perfect chic balance. 

A midi you can dress up or down. 

Minimalistic sandals always look so premium. 

2. SAGE 

Classic Spring Colours: Sage Green



Style Notes: Kelly green might be one of the year’s biggest trends—colour or otherwise—but in terms of classic spring colours, sage is where it’s at. The hue goes with so many other shades. I’m sure you’ll find it incredibly versatile. 

Just add a white tee and chunky sandals. 

The simplest way to incorporate colour into your outfits is with a handbag. 

Tick off two trends in one with a pair of sage cargo trousers.

Classic Spring Colours: Ecru and White



Style Notes: What would the warmer months be without a healthy dose of white and cream in your wardrobe? Wear it top to toe to look the epitome of rich and unbothered. 

There’s so much excellent linen to be had at Arket right now. 

The front-crease makes these trousers look so luxe.

Classic Spring Colours: Tangerine Orange



Style Notes: Bright-orange tones are everywhere I look right now, but don’t worry—this isn’t a fleeting trend. Stick to juicy tangerine shades, and I promise you’ll pull them out each and every year. 

Leave this blouse untucked to fully appreciate the oversized silhouette. 


Classic Spring Colours: Cobalt Blue



Style Notes: Although shades of blue work year-round, I think they look their freshest come spring. In place of pastel shades, look to classic cobalt tones to elevate your outfits. 

Tan leather sliders, chunky running shoes, bright mule heels—style this with whatever shoes you like. 

Another linen shirt I’m considering. 

The cut-outs on this dress are subtle, ensuring it still looks expensive.

Cropped blazers are trending in a big way this year.
