Spring color trends for 2021 are all about sparking energy and new life. While the colors are drawn from nature, they are brighter and more vivid this year and are meant to inspire optimism and a renewed interest in color. One such vivid color trending for spring 2021 is raspberry sorbet.
You may also have heard that bubblegum pink is trending this year and the two terms may very well describe the same color. Any pink from the bright “Barbie” pink to the deeper raspberry will be on trend. Colors vary by tint, tone, and shade. Old Navy has a fun, bright pink reminiscent of “dubble bubble” called zinnia pink. JCrew Factory has a selection of items in radiant fuschia.
Let’s take a look at what’s available in fashion in raspberry sorbet and how to wear this brilliant color.
Who can wear raspberry sorbet best?
Summers and winters, rejoice! This is one of your colors. Summers and winters are those who can wear cool colors and have cool, bluish undertones to their skin. Autumns and springs, those with warmer coloring, should look for warmer, peachy shades of pink.
Color pairings with raspberry sorbet
Raspberry and olive
Raspberry works well with olives and greens that are of the same intense saturation level. For example, raspberry will look great with mint from the palette above, but not so great with green ash, particularly lighter shades and less saturated versions of the color.
Below is an example from my archive of outfits with olive on top and bright pink on the bottom.
Shop the Look:
Raspberry and Navy
Raspberry will really pop against navy and white.
Raspberry and Tan
Keep the bright color the focus with more neutrals like tan, or the Pantone spring core color buttercream.
Other ways to wear raspberry sorbet
Wear it as a print.
If one solid piece in this bright color is overwhelming, break it up and wear it in a print. Pair it with an unexpected color like rust.
Wear it on your feet.
If it’s just not your color and won’t work next to your face, wear it on your feet.
