Spring 2022 will introduce our wardrobes to some of the dreamiest, wearable colours yet, and we can’t wait to try them on and choose a favourite. These hues were so prominent on the runways from New York to Paris, we hardly had to deliberate over the six big winners. Ahead, feast your eyes on soft lilac, which is surprisingly sleek and offers a new perspective on purple; sunny canary yellow; moody hot pink; salted caramel; electrifying scarlet; and a mystifying sky blue. Either scroll through our favourite instances of these colour moments one by one, or jump ahead to the shade you want to explore right away.

If ever there was a time to adopt a new favourite colour, it’s right now, when soft lilac’s on the market. For anyone who’s said they don’t like purple, this shade, which has a badass touch of a sleek, gray undertone and a pastel-like finish, will change your mind. Though it may be easy on the eyes, it actually commands attention in power-suit form. Don’t underestimate the person wearing it.
Thebe Magugu spring 2022
Even when this season’s yellow veers a bit more towards lemon, it still has that wonderfully chalky look to it that makes it feel far more elevated than gold or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, highlighter territory. Spotted at big-time, luxury fashion houses like Alexander McQueen and Chanel, you know it’s bound to find its way onto some of our most prominent wardrobe staples.
Loewe spring 2022
Somewhere between a fuchsia and magenta lies this brilliant shade of pink, which some might refer to as rhodamine red. It’s more purplish than Barbie, but still undeniably fun – and it holds a lot of power. That’s why we’re seeing it on a lot of statement looks like jumpsuits, co-ord sets, and dresses that turn heads both for their design and their colour.
Et Ochs spring 2022
Meet the 2022 neutral that’s way more upbeat than khaki or classic tan. It’s brighter than classic caramel and looks lovely contrasted by purple or played up by peach. Follow Miuccia Prada’s lead at Miu Miu and wear it layered with multiple shades of brown, or invest in a new tailored suit or work pants in the shade and everyone will know you’re shopping from the latest collections.
COS spring 2022
In most instances, the tinge of orange in this season’s scarlet makes itself known. It’s by far the boldest colour we saw stand out on the runway, and it’ll help you put that pep in your step. Even if you aren’t feeling upbeat, get dressed in this shade of red, and your mood will boost like magic.
Ganni spring 2022
The new blue for 2022 is a little more open to interpretation. Whether for you it leans more cornflower or cyan, there’s one thing undeniable about it: it reminds you of the sky. And we all know the range that encompasses. We love how it looks as a monochrome outfit, so, when in doubt, buy the matching shoes . . . and jacket . . . and bag. You get the picture.
