Which Top 7 Spring 2020 Colours Are for You?….by an Toronto Image Consultant
Every year Pantone releases its list of spring colours that are quickly mass-produced and you’ll see in every store from Zara to Hugo Boss.
Knowing what the trendy colours are is awesome, right? Yes and no. Just because a colour is trendy doesn’t mean that it will make the most of you. Some people know what their colour palette is (I’d like this to be a hyperlink back to my 1 on 1 services page for colour analysis) but if you don’t it’s really easy and affordable to find out from a personal stylist or image consultant. I can even do your colours digitally or by photos if you’re outside of Toronto or GTA!
Ok, to all my peeps, you know I’m the Image Consultant who always gives a ton of colour education so this article will make complete sense to you, to those of you who don’t know me; I teach you what comprises your colour palette backward, forwards, upside down and sideways….because let’s face it, colour that you see in stores and online changes constantly and YOU have to be the one who knows exactly why some colours will look great on you and some won’t!
So let’s take a look at Spring 2020 shall we? It’s an interesting season! I’m happy to announce that there is an on-trend colour for a LOT of colour palettes. Psst. If your colour palette isn’t trending this season…don’t worry! You can bring one or more of these colours into your shoes, accessories (belt, hat, necklace, bag) or scarves and still get the look!
#1 Grape Compote
This pale lilac primarily has a warm undertone with lot of white coming through the colour which is ideal for a Spring Palette BUT there is a hint of cool in this undertone with some grey or “smoky” colour added which further defines this colour as flowing to a Light Spring/Summer Palette.
#2 Orange Peel
This orange only has a warm undertone. Primarily black is added to this colour making it ideal for the Autumn Palette, however there is some white added to the colour making it appear very bright so you can further define this colour as flowing to Bright Spring.

Remember! You will ALWAYS but ALWAYS make the most of yourself by wearing your palette colours. You really won’t be doing yourself justice if you’re a Winter and you wear the new trendy Cinnamon Stick just because it’s a hot new colour.
