Hottest Shades this Winter!


Are you an aspiring fashionista? Are you out of the loop with the latest winter trends? Every winter, a new range of colours come into vogue. This year, too, a spectrum of unique colours have been displayed by top designers, setting the trend for what colours work, this winter. 


As the winter trundles on, here are the ‘hottest’ colour fashion trends of winter 2018-19:




Violet has been a trending colour throughout the course of 2018. The winter season has seen the emergence of the trend of darker violet shades, which suit women above the age of 40 remarkably well. It goes perfectly with burgundy. Use violet tops and burgundy bottoms for best results.



Red Pear

There’s perhaps no colour that better suits the holiday season than Red Pear! It aptly represents romance. Givenchy led the way with some stunning Red Pear designs. It’s the perfect ‘wine’ shade, as well, so it’s suitable for regular outings as well as more romantic occasions and dates.


Bright Fuchsia

Fuchsia is perhaps the most famous shade of pink. It’s a purple-red-tinted mix that was a hot trend from the fall of 2018. The subtleties of the colour are brought out in Prabal Gurung’s latest designs, who’s even used the colour to represent feminist themes. He works with influences from Nepal and groups in India.



Sargasso Sea

The Sargasso Sea is a shade of dark blue. Dark blue suits the winter season and was recently displayed on the Tibi runway, with models showing off stunning V-neck designs.




Burgundy works with violet, but it works on its own as a top or highlight piece as well! It’s been making waves this winter. Subtle shades of burgundy are great in their own right, something that was proven by designers from Givenchy, Bottega Veneta and Roksanda (among others), as they showcased beautiful dresses, full-length coats and even great boots of this colour.



Mustard Yellow

Mustard yellow has been on the rise over the last few years. This winter has been no different, with new spicy shades of mustard yellow on display. Roksanda, in particular, displayed a wide range of mustard yellow shades, from sparkling colours to stand-out brights and floral designs as well!



Bright Orange 

This one is admittedly tricky. In the fall of 2018, we saw a vast range of orange colours from Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta and more. They each chose to use very different shades of orange, going from burnt orange to brighter shades, while de la Renta chose a more subtle shade of orange with black embroidery, more suitable to people aged 40 and above. While, typically, brighter shades suit people below 40, other factors can also come into play in terms of suitability, such as body figure and what you choose to match with it. Navy blue makes a great match for bright orange colours.



Black and Neutral Shades

It’s time to move towards simpler, neutral colours. Black will never go out of style, and winter continues to see growth in the trends of black fashion. Alberta Ferretti and Bottega Veneta displayed some incredible black designs, which add class and a hint of sex appeal too! Veneta’s lace evening gowns are suitable for almost any adult.



If you’re into neutral colours, then metallic grey, plain white and meerkat are trending as well. Whether it’s designer clothes or something simple, neutral tones are suitable for almost any occasion… and are in vogue this year!


So… what are you waiting for? It’s time to go shopping!
