Earthy shades are usually associated with Fall. However, there were plenty of spicey, rust, terracotta type shades of orangey-brown on the catwalks for spring 2023. To give your orange a spring or summer feel, you could combine with white, as shown with the white blazer outfit (below).

Next up, magenta. This shade of purplish-red can be a tricky one to wear, as it can look old fashioned. But, if you keep the shapes of your clothes very modern, you can make magenta look hip. The Eileen Fisher top (below) features a modern, funnel neck, that is perfect for giving your magenta outfits stylish, clean lines.

Designers added a touch of romance to their looks, with plenty of pale pink. I would follow the lead of Victoria Beckham or Vetements (above) and wear your pale pink in structured, tailored suits, or you could mix your pink with black (as shown below) if you have a wedding outfit to plan this year.
