Hot Pink

Barely there blush has been the reigning hue for the past year, but this upcoming season is about amplifying girly pink to electric heights. We're talking about almost-fluorescent levels that your throwback Barbie-obsessed self would have loved.

Opting for a hooded jacket is one way to keep things sporty-chic.

Hot pink is a powerful color, so keep the rest of your outfit neutral.

If the idea of wearing hot pink feels a bit much, experiment with smaller accessories or shoes that feel more manageable.

Golden Yellow

Golden yellow is a special hue that's found in between muted mustard and sunny banana. It packs a punch but not so overwhelmingly that you'd shield your eyes, making it an ideal "bright" for spring. On the color spectrum of emotions, golden yellow is what Happiness is.

Matching co-ords make for a bold way to flaunt this charismatic hue.

Fancy sweatshirts (which are currently having a moment) make for a great way to casually introduce a color like golden yellow into your rotation.

Indigo

Denim will never go away, which means indigo (and shades thereof) won't fade, either. This spring, bring on all the blues-on-blues love. Whether you prefer to keep things tonal or contrast the light with dark washes, there's no wrong way to pile them on.

Mauve

Purple tends to have a polarizing stance in fashion—we admit it's not the most popular hue. But a more blue-ish approach to this controversial shade begets a palatable mauve, a completely unexpected and exciting color trend to watch out for this spring.

There's a certain toughness to mauve if you style it right. Treat it like you would denim and have the rich shade toughen up a spring maxi.

Mauve + golden yellow = A color-blocking combo made in heaven.

Mauve truly catches the eye in unexpected ways—blame it on its under-representation in the wardrobe. Here, a simple pair of loafers really takes a basic outfit to another level.
