We Put 3 Color Trends to the Test, and the Results Are So Good

All the Ways to Wear is a monthly series where we round up the personal twists the Who What Wear team is putting on one particular item, style, or trend. Whether it's the trending denim of the moment or the season's It print, we hope to inspire your daily outfits and up the cost per wear on some of our favorite items.

After a year indoors, there's nothing like a fresh spring hue to get us excited about fashion again. Three fresh spring hues to be exact. Tangerine, bubblegum pink, and pale yellow are on our radars in a major way. Not only were these colors all over the S/S 21 runways, but it's also seriously hard to not be in a good mood while wearing one of them. Seven of our Who What Wear team members put the three color trends to the test, from integrating a single accessory into their outfits all the way to creating a full monochromatic look. The results are in, and they're so good.

TANGERINE

If peach had an older, cooler sister it would be tangerine. This punchy orange makes a statement no matter how you wear it, but a ribbed-knit midi dress with a cutout is definitely a bold (and fun!) choice.

Layer in a tangerine sweatshirt to make an average loungewear look infinitely more exciting.

Hot pink had a moment a few seasons ago, but now it's all about a lighter but equally bright shade: bubblegum pink. Make a dress in this happy hue pop by styling it with white accessories.

This look is also a great example of how to wear leather in spring.

Not ready to fully commit? Bubblegum pink sneakers add a fun pop of color to an outfit without taking over the entire look.

Pale yellow is a great color trend to get involved in if you typically only wear neutrals. As Kristen proves here, a T-shirt or tank in the shade can easily be swapped into any outfit you'd typically style with a white one.

Ally goes all in on the color trend with a matching tank, cardigan, and face mask. When you love a trend, you love a trend.
