Watermelon Sugar: The New Colour Pop

You know spring is just around the corner when fresh, bright tones start to appear in shop fronts.  This spring, we’re welcoming WATERMELON!

It’s pretty rare to find a universally flattering colour for ALL shapes, sizes, and skin tones. But ladies, watermelon is one of those colours you can ALWAYS count on!

As a colour, watermelon evokes comfort and familiarity—something we’re all needing right now.

Not only does watermelon herald the start of spring/summer, but it is also the colour that can translate into our wardrobes all year round.  Style any watermelon pop with a lovely white linen texture during a sunny day, or pair her with some blue denim tones for a more casual look.

It’s strong enough to wear with darker tones, so blend it down with a touch of navy blue during the cooler months, or throw on a pair of black pumps to style it up in the office or for after-work drinks.

No matter the time of day or occasion, you can always rely on the fact that a slice of watermelon in your outfit will bring vibrating energy and playful touch.

For those braver girls out there, don’t be afraid to embrace that head-to-toe watermelon style.  It’s such a statement style, but I am SO loving it as it starts to get a little warmer.

For some, this bright shade of watermelon can be a little overwhelming. Feel free to sway towards a more orange rust shade or a burnt coral tone.

Suppose the watermelon colour block look is not for you, no stress!  Shop for pieces that will bring subtle, vibrant touches into your wardrobe this season.  This can be in the form of some fun accessories or instead look for a watermelon print.

Watermelon toned prints are a great alternative as they incorporate other colours that break up the boldness of the watermelon tone itself.  This brings a softness to your spring style but still delivers the fun vibrancy your wardrobe is looking for.
