Different shades of color have given the garments a freshness that fits the new season, both on the catwalk and on social networks like TikTok.
The spring-summer 2022-23 season has arrived with several trends that are going strong, either on the catwalk or on social networks. Especially on TikTok, a favorite of Gen Z: many users started to show off, especially with a trend that will be all the rage and that will not be missing in any fashionista’s wardrobe. It is about gradient colors.”.
After the tie dye boom in 2021, coinciding with the pandemic era and the “do it yourself” rage for the time we spent at home, its natural successor is degrade or the trend of wearing degraded colors.And it has remained in plain sight: different shades have dyed the garments both in the designers’ collections and in street style; with the freshness that summer demands, of course.
It is clear that it is a good opportunity to dare to wear strident colors and ranges that “scream” presence for whoever wears them. Undoubtedly, a fashion that is not for everyone but that can be seen a lot.
How to wear the gradient color trend.
The Courreges firm was one of those that jumped on this trend and proposed a dress in which red and orange merged until they reached a purple volume. It was a simple piece, with a medium modular length and that highlighted the figure of the model. It was clear that color was the protagonist in this design.
In this case, the accessories came to accompany the total look: the shoes were in a red hue, while the bag that the model carried was also gradient. To crown, a shiny ring with details in red.
Ideally, if a garment with gradient colorschosen, accessoriesries and complements should accompany the palette. Or on the other hand, another option would be to “silence” them, by using neutral tones, such as black, white or brown and gray. It will depend on which gradient is chosen in the first instance.
The prize for the best gradient goes to the firm Marni, which in a surreal reading, brought the gradient of colors that contrast with each other. In turn, the firm’s bet was that the degrade complemented with circular-shaped figures that wore complementary tones. Very effective if generating impact is what you are looking for.
Ferragamo, Zimmermann and Etro were a little more conservative when it came to using gradients, but they also bet on this trend in their collections.
