This editorial is filled with fresh sunkissed looks that shuttle between soft, bold and something that falls in-between these two extremes. A palette filled with citrus hues and juicy floral pinks for a zesty and fresh summer filled with sun, cocktails and fun.
Colors range from soft juicy floral pinks such as lilacs, honeysuckle and almost nothing pink to seasonal brights such as bright fuchsia, citrus yellows, lime greens and hydrangea blue. Nail colors follow the same color trends. Brights bangles and silver hoops add a nice touch for an accessory punch. The bold looks are still wearable with focus placed on either eyes or lips (not both). The third one with bright lavender-lilac eyes and almost nothing lips is very trendy, wearable and perfect for Summer. Soft juicy pink lips, almost nothing nails and soft shimmery / dewy eye shadows complete the look that you see in the last pictures. I also love the last ensemble, crisp white waist-tie shirt paired with bright lime-yellow lace shorts is so feminine, sensual and playful at the same time. This editorial reminds me of all things summer; colorful flowers, warm sunshine, fruit cocktails and zesty sun-kissed “tutti fruiti” looks. I don’t think you’ll ever catch me wearing Stella McCartney’s lemon and lime prints but I have to say that I love citrus and floral inspired colors so I would definitely go for products that have these colors in them.
