How is everyone navigating through the coldest month of the year? It’s usually at around this point (i.e., the bitterly cold throes of January) where I find my daily outfits (and mood) could do with a much needed uplifting boost. So for the last few weeks, I decided to liven up my looks by injecting some vibrant color into my mostly neutral wardrobe. After all, even a small pop of color can instantly invigorate and revitalize a winter look.
To get a head start on some of this year’s biggest color trends, I looked to the spring collections to see what hues I could easily add to my wardrobe right now. From unapologetic bubblegum pink to the prettiest pale yellow, scroll below to see how I’ve been wearing this year’s trending colors through winter and shop my favorite pieces in each hue that you can wear now and into spring.

One of the most standout colors we saw all over the S/S 21 collections, was a vibrant, peppy pink hue that falls somewhere between neon and pastel—think pink bubblegum! It's easy to pair with neutrals such as gray, beige, and ivory.
I've been wearing the fun color through winter in the form of knit sweaters and turtlenecks that I can easily layer with cozy neutral sweaters and sweatpants. In fact, pink pairs beautifully with a plethora of hues and it's certainly an easy hue to integrate into your winter-to-spring wardrobe.

We've seen vibrant orange on the fashion scene these past few seasons (most notably with accessories) and for spring 2021 it's certainly having a major moment—seen in the form of dresses, knits, and outerwear.
Wow, tangerine hues really incite a lot of compliments—and will certainly boost your mood. While the color can seem a little intimidating, I recommend pairing an orange cardigan or sweater with casual gray pieces for a fresh winter look. If you want to ease into the color subtly, you can always try a chic accessory.

Subtle and soft pale yellow hues were seen everywhere from long knit dresses at Givenchy to pretty skirts at Acne Studios. It will no doubt add a touch of warmth, positivity, and sunshine to your winter outfits.
Pale yellow pairs beautifully with gray. I've been pairing this Tibi sweater over everything from long t-shirts to turtlenecks.
