Colour me Saffron!

Add a bit of spice to your wardrobe this summer!

One of the trends that graced the Spring/Summer 2020 New York Fashion Week earlier this year was bright colours. Bright reds, corals and greens were very popular, but the one colour that stood out was saffron. The Pantone Color Institute summed up the colour trend as friendly and relatable.

Why Saffron?

Saffron is known as a spice and has a base of red, yellow and purples. This is what adds to the warm and golden feeling that oozes from the shade. Saffron is a fresh alternative to mustard and caramel and makes it easy to achieve that sophisticated retro look. If you are still not convinced to wear this colour, it looks flattering on all skin tines!
Sally Lapointe, Eckhaus Latta, Bibhu Mohapatra and Issey Miyake are just a few of the designers who embraced the happy shade and went all out by sending models down the runway in head-to-toe saffron looks.


3 Ways to Wear Saffron?

There are many ways that you can wear this colour.
  1. Head-to-toe.

 You can be bold and exude confidence by wearing full saffron from head to toe. Go for maxi dresses and play with feminine fabrics such as lace, velvet and satin.


  1. A pop of saffron.

 If you are into a more muted look, you can add a vibrant pop of colour to your faded denim (another huge trend on the runway) by opting for a saffron blouse or t-shirt. Or wear a saffron skirt with a white top. Finally, you can add a saffron accessory or even put your best foot forward in a pair of saffron-coloured shoes.


  1. Patterns and prints.

You can even incorporate the colour in a print. Floral prints were also very popular on the runway. The great thing about this colour is that it can be paired with so many other trendy colours such as gold, tan, coral, blue, red, navy, pink, and grey.
