COLOURS IN FASHION FOR SUMMER 2020
Pantone Colour Institute said spring summer 2020 colours reflect our desire to encourage ourselves as we face the future. SS20 colours are here not only to lift our mood but to give us a boost of confidence on the go.
But what are the most confidence-boosting colours? Blue, green, grey, tangerine or pastel colours? Brown perhaps? Yes, all these colours are in fashion for summer 2020. But let us check one colour palette at the time.
SPRING SUMMER 2020 COLOR TRENDS
First, the grey tones. After all, grey is the most fashionable colour for summer of 2020.
Grey, grey, grey! If you are a fashion editor or Instagram IT girl, then for sure, you have used #gray at least once this week. Grey is genuinely the most popular colour right now. From blanc de blanc to silver, these are the most fashionable grey hues.
Ps. Be sure to browse through the widgets to shop this season must-have clothes and shoes in grey.
BLANC DE BLANC
Blanc de Blanc is smooth and subtle shade of grey. It’s a must-have in your wardrobe for summer 2020, for sure. I tell you, all the chic girls will wear a blanc de blanc dress instead of a little white dress this summer.
They say that Oyster Mushroom is a grey shade of strength. Truth to be told, I don’t know what that means. Nor I care. I only want all these beautiful clothes in this pretty shade of grey.
If you ask me, Brilliant white is the most beautiful grey hue this season. It’s clean and crisp, and it suggests purity yet modernity.
Unlike Brilliant white, ash is a solid and strong colour. Furthermore, ash is an eternally timeless grey colour. Yes, that is why an ash grey suit is an investment. Ps. For Summer 2020 shop for a 3-piece suit in ash grey. Check the widget below. You will find 2 fashionable 3-piece suits (one designer and another more affordable), plus matching bags and shoes.
If you can afford to buy only one thing this year, make sure it’s in silver. Silver is a key fashion trend for fall winter 2020/21 as well.
Blue is not an entirely new colour trend for summer 2020. If you remember, the 70s blue shades were in style for winter 2020 already. But there are more shades of blue in fashion right now. I love the Classic Blue and Mosiac Blue the most. What about you?
Tanager Turquoise is a flashy shade of blue. Hence more about it a bit later – under the neon collage. For now, all you need to know about this fluo blue shade is that you need everything from the widget below.
Yes, spring summer 2020 brought back the washed faded denim jeans. Plus all these other things – for comfort and ease.
Truth to be told, Heritage Blue seems a bit boring when you look at it in the colour trend report. But when you grab one of these stylish blue things from the gallery below, you get to realise how cool this shade of blue is.
Mysterious and dark, just how we like it, right? Blueberry is the shade of blue for all of you who like wearing dark colours but want to dress more fashionably.
Another stylish dark shade of blue is Navy Blazer. I know, it looks almost the same as Blueberry. But it’s not. Navy Blazer is darker than Blueberry. Yet less mysterious.
Finally, the shade of blue that was made for the First Lady. Mosaic blue is a graceful colour that makes everyone believe in you. Get that dress in mosaic blue and try a lie on your guy. See? I told you!
#3 TANGERINE AND ORANGES
Yes, orange is back in style for summer 2020. Long time no see? Not really! Nevertheless, orange came back right when everyone already forgot about it.
SAFFRON OR TANGERINE IS ONE OF THE MOST FASHIONABLE COLOURS FOR SUMMER 2020
They say that tangerine or better known as Saffron is the unexpected colour of summer 2020. The fashionable colour no one saw coming on the Instagram feed so fast. Well, I did! I bought a few things from the widget below a while ago.
Anyway, Saffron/tangerine is not the only fashionable orange colour this season.
Flame orange is also fashionable this season.
Last but far from least, key spring summer 2020 colour is green.
Isn’t this shade of green just stunning? I’m thrilled to have a red undertone in my hair. I know, red hair and green dress is such a cliché. But Storm is the colour for red ladies, for sure.
And they say that green is just for redheads. This beautiful and fashionable green colour is perfect for blonds and brunettes.
Here is what to shop in Biscay green for spring summer 2020.
Chive is here to remind us that safari trend is back in style for summer 2020.
#5 EARTHY TONES
I know, you must be wondering, where is beige. Is beige still in style for summer 2020? Sure it is! Cuban sand is the beige hue to live in summer 2020. However, there is other, a lot more fashionable earthy natural colour you should wear this season. Don’t worry, I will let you know which natural colour is more stylish than beige/Cuban sand this season.
But first, a few words more about the spring summer 2020 stylish beige.
Cuban sand is a fashionable beige colour that brings warmth and comfort. It’s the best match for the fake tan.
And here it is! 2020 key colour! For lips, for hair, for shoes and for clothes. Brown is one of the key colours for summer 2020. And THE COLOUR for fall winter 2020/21. Check the fashion report for fall winter 2020/21 to see what to buy for the cold season. And browse through the widget below to see what in brown you must buy for summer 2020.

Isn’t this the most beautiful shade of yellow ever? So bright, so positive and happy. Plus, in style for summer 2020.
#6 FLUORESCENT NEONS – THE COLOURS WE DON’T SEEM TO HAVE ENOUGH
Again, fluo neon colours are still in style for summer 2020. Nevertheless, they are slightly lighter this season. Scroll down to see what I mean.
No, slime lime green is not in style anymore. We wear flashy neon green in summer 2020. What’s the difference? Fluo green is brighter than slime lime green. Think of slime lime green as of a green frog and fluo green of anything else but a frog. I know, it doesn’t make much sense – but it doesn’t really matter.
Here is what to shop in fluorescent green.
NEON ORANGE / ORANGE PEEL
NEON YELLOW IRIS
Give a little flash to Yellow Iris, and here you get a fashionable neon yellow that is perfect to wear for summer 2020.
The favourite colour for my eyes. Wait, don’t get me wrong, my favourite colour to wear will always be black. But for my eyes, there is only Barbie pink. Neon and bright, just the way I like it. Still, , and this are SS20 must-have and already on my .
Tanager Turquoise is a cooler update of the neon turquoise that was fashionable seasons ago. Yes, it’s easier to style and more wearable. So go for it! Trust me, you need at least one slit skirt in tanager turquoise for summer 2020.
#7 SPRING PASTELS AND SORBET COLOURS
Obviously not just spring pastels. Since we wear pastels in summer too. But spring pastels sounds more legit. Besides, we prefer to name pastel colours with another name for summer. You know, ice cream colours or sorbet colours. But at the end of the season, spring pastels, ice cream colours or sorbet colours, they all get to be in the same shade.
This fashionable colour for summer 2020 invites happiness, pleasant cheer and joy. You can wear it on its own or style it with neon yellow.
Ps. You need something in tweed and satin in sunlight yellow to follow this fashion trend.
Already one of the favourite summer 2020 colours of the fashion girls. I love how my girl Stella styled her slip pastel yellow skirt with blanc de blanc sweater and pumps.
Here are some pastel yellow skirts and dresses I like the most.
BLANC DE BLANC
And here some blanc de blanc sweaters and jackets to wear with your new Yellow Iris skirt and dress.
Now the most romantic colour of summer 2020 colour palette. And one of my favourite spring summer 2020 colour trends – Blossom. Blossom is a petal-soft pink that is perfect to wear for weddings and romantic dates.
Slightly warmer than Blossom, Coral Pink is perfect to wear on a cold rainy spring day.
Last fashionable pastel colour for summer 2020 is Blush Beauty. For all of you who love pastel colours but find them too calm for your energic personality. Blush Beauty is somewhere in between. I guess I will wear it rains in summer.
#8 BOLD COLOURS
Enough with pastel melodrama, it’s time for bold summer 2020 colours. Calling in red, purple and orange.
Next, Beetroot Purple. The colour I wear on my lips on and on this season. But I’m also getting all of these things from the widget below. Can you guess what I will buy first?
Grape Compote is the most fashionable transitional colour of 2020. To wear Grape Compote in-between seasons – shop these trendy outfits from the widget below.
RED COLOUR TRENDS FOR SUMMER 2020
Energy and drama, just what we want in summer. Fiery red was made for summer office days. Trust me, you will love going to work in summer just to show off in one of these Fiery Red dresses.
Hooping for a raise? Then put on something and Flame Scarlette red and ask your boss for it. Flame Scarlette will boost you with confidence and determination to achieve anything.
Again, the Bossa Nova. Red with a brown undertone that is perfect to wear when you have nothing to wear and can shop only for clothes that are seasonless.
#9 BLACK AND CLASSIC SUMMER COLOURS
Black is in fashion! Ha, I know. You must be like: “Wait, what?! What are you talking, when black wasn’t in fashion?!” right now. Sure black is always in fashion. But for 2020, summer 2020 and also autumn winter 2020/21, black is the colour. IT colour! In short, black is more fashionable right now than ever. By the way, if you can’t decide on the colour of your new swimsuit or summer dress, get it in black.
