Whether you’re a color fanatic or totally phobic, the spring and summer season is all about lightening up your look. This year, everything from sorbet shades to saturated hues are trending in every category of your closet, and you’ve probably started shopping the essentials—a pastel dress here, a vibrant sandal there, and so forth. Then, there’s the concept of mixing—we know, bold!—but where to start? Here, we’re breaking down three fresh color formulas that are major this season. Because we know not everyone’s ideal is a flamboyant combo, we put together a range of pairings from quietly coordinated to punchy and pigmented.
