7 coolest colour combinations to try from Lakme Fashion Week SS18

From light pastel shades to bold colours

By Shweta Gandhi  February 6th, 2018

The psychology of colour is powerful — each colour you choose to wear is subconsciously affecting your mood and your emotions. For a positive year ahead, we’ve picked out the coolest colour combinations that were trending at Lakme Fashion Week SS18.

If there’s one definitive colour that’s our Pantone version for this summer, it’s yellow. Seen across designers like Anita Dongre, Tarun Tahiliani and Shantanu and Nikhil, the humble hue was deconstructed and mixed with white, grey and silver. And what’s more, the colour of sunshine boosts your self-confidence and empowers you with strength and positivity — isn’t that what we all need this year?

For those who like to keep their sartorial choices understated, pastel shades of blue, pink and mint green will be a classic choice. And for those who like to make a statement, the bold combination of pink and red will work beautifully.

Colour combinations to try for summer:

Pastel shades of blue and pink

Pastel blue and light pink are ideal summer colours that work well for a day occasion. The colour combination was used across pantsuits, dresses, saris and lehenga sets. As seen at Ashwini Reddy.
