The clean and pristine look that this color exudes can never be beaten. White maxi dresses and long skirts should be in your wardrobe.

Tips for wearing white clothes:

  • Never wear white bottoms if you are living in big cities, and commute using the subways and other public transportation. I’m sure you can imagine the dirty seats.

2. Citrus Orange


Who says orange is just for the fall? Wearing a brighter shade can make it a color associated with spring, so don’t be afraid to rock that fruity dress.

Trivia: Do you know orange color is a combination of the happiness of yellow and the confidence of red? This color also represents enthusiasm, stimulation, and success.

3. Spicy Like Saffron Yellow

This mustard-like and flavorful shade has become a recent trend in fashion that you should hop on. If you’re going for bold, you can opt for sunny bottoms or a vibrant top.

Trivia: This spring color will display the optimistic side of you.

4. A Paler Yellow


If you want to go lowkey in spring colors, pale yellow is your best bet. Switch it up with patterns such as plaid or gingham for a more unique look.

Trivia: They said pale yellow may mean lack of confidence but that was not we saw in the runway. For me, it is a hint of new ideas and innovation.

5. Minty Than Green

Pastel pink is a must for springtime, but mauve pink is a great alternative for those who want to go for a more mature and sexy look.

Trivia: Mauve is actually a hue between lilac and lavender. This color is for someone who wants justice to be done and wants to always do the right thing.
