Spring Color Trend: How to Wear Raspberry Sorbet

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.

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.
