In 2021 the fashion scene began talking about ‘dopamine dressing’ and clothes with ‘mood-boosting’ properties. Put it simply, colour was on our radar! From Yves Klein blue to Kelly green, last year packed a punch with its electric palette. This year, the most anticipated colours are no less vibrant! Get ready to see A LOT of orange hitting your favourite stores and social media. Orange is the perfect 2022 colour – it’s bold, vivid and most importantly, there’s a soothing type of warmth to it. Fittingly, this year’s shade of orange is called ‘mango sorbet’. Sounds delicious, right? I can’t wait to dig deeper in this one.
Mango sorbet is much more versatile than what meets the eye. You might have noticed that pastel tones are also slowly becoming popular again, and orange is actually the best colour to mix-and-match them with! Use the colour as a highlight with a bag (like this one from Stand Studio that gives me Bottega Veneta vibes), or go the step further into orange escapism with a dress. The fruitier and more mature looking sister to pink, orange will be a must for spring/summer looks! To get the most of of it, try combining orange hues with other trends such as ‘cut-out’ details and sports-core. The warm hue will really bring out another level of joyfulness and optimism to those pieces. Besides, if you’ve been bugging to try out more colour for the warmer weather, mango sorbet would be a safe way to start!
