If you’re a lover of neutrals, you may want to sit this season out. Ultra-pigmented hues—of all shades of the color wheel—have emerged as a huge trend this year, and it’s nearly impossible to escape them. As a fashion editor of over six years who’s just about seen it all, I can’t recall a year in the industry as vibrant as 2022. Fashion has collectively entered its Lisa Frank era.
And while all hues seem to be getting shine right now, (tangerine and hot pink are among them), an unusual, hyperspecific color combo has caught my attention. I first noticed it at Theophilio’s S/S 22 show, where palettes of green, yellow, and red were reoccurring themes within the collection. Weeks later, Bottega Veneta’s and Versace’s vivid spring presentations convinced me yellow and green are a power duo that is here to stay.
From the high street to the runways, yellow and electric green—or what I like to call Sprite dressing—are the unexpected outfit pairing taking over the scene. Although the fashion crowd is never afraid to experiment with seemingly peculiar color combinations, this one is the most audacious thus far. The bright hues may evoke a little reluctance, but trust me when I say this micro-trend can be a lot more approachable IRL. For proof, I’ve outlined my favorite interpretations of the growing trend as well as outfit ideas for giving Sprite styling a go for yourself. Keep scrolling to see it all.
