Cinder, the heat and sun’s colour has for this season a lemon tone. When seen, our mind flies goes to holidays, cheerfulness, freedom, optimism, heat and relaxation. It closely harmonises with grey, blue and some green and fuchsia shades. An epitome of sunshine, blooming sunflowers, mustard fields, summer citrus fruits and happiness; there are many reasons attached to the glorification of the colour Cinder, making it a huge trend for SS14.
Clothes and trend-driven pieces add up for an entire wardrobe, but it’s really the colour palette that dictates the mood. As we know, these colours are mainly interpreted from the change in season, which is probably why we usually see darker tones pop up for autumn / winter and brighter shades for spring / summer. Cinder is a chief colour for spring 2014, and not just because it’s a direct interpretation from the landscape of the European countryside.
This colour evokes an up heaving emotion, a sense of excitement, hope, and also manages to provide a slight distraction from the industry’s economic seesaw. It makes you do a double take on the outfit. Cinder can come across as quite in-your-face at times, especially with its over-joyous and extroverted personality, but if worn in the right context and teamed with other soothing colours – this colour trend has a lot of potential for spring.
Like we said, there are plenty of ways to approach this trend, as it’s less about a particular item of clothing and more about how your use yellow in your overall attire. Be it on accessories or actual clothes, the styling matters the most. An ocean of fabrics is at your disposal for this colour trend. The good news: Cinder can look sophisticated and sensual when married to chiffon or other sheer fabrics.
