Get dressed up in this season’s coolest colour

THERE’S more than one way to get the blues (ain’t that the truth), and here’s the light, bright, no-tears version. From electric to powder to azure, there’s no escaping one of this season’s coolest colours.

Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.
