This week, FashionUnited readers get an exclusive look at three key women's colours integral to the SS20 season. Pastels develop a whitened cast in Banana Sorbet, offering a contemporary take on feminine shades. Cactus Green sees natural influences soften previously luminous brights while Black Forest Gateau illustrates how blackened darks are becoming a spring/summer staple.

Banana Sorbet

An evolution of ultra-feminine pastels and saccharine brights, Banana Sorbet's icy undertones and whitened finishes provide a fresh, sophisticated alternative without losing its uplifting vibrancy. Cool, bleached finishes make yellow a wearable option as an all-over shade or in tonal blockings.

Black Forest Gateau

Spring Summer 2020 Women's Colour Directions

As consumers become more experimental and seek alternatives to black, classic staples such as navy, burgundy and teal develop with a blackened depth and mattified finish to become key fashion colours for SS20. Cherry undertones add a richness to deep red shades, giving a luxe feel across both casual and formalwear.

Luminous brights are given a more organic tint for SS20, modernising the neon and synthetic shades of previous seasons. Lush cactus greens have a natural vibrancy, making a statement as a single shade or combined with neutrals for an unexpected contrast colour that appeals to a more experimental consumer.
