Adding a new color, or combining the existing colors you have in a different way, is a great way to update your look. In this article, you’ll find all the best spring clothing colors for 2023.

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).
Also take a look at our popular article on how to wear orange.

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.

There were plenty of olive greens on the catwalks. This color can look especially hip with white to create a look perfect for the warmer months. I love the combination of olive, white and black (below). The Open Edit blazer (below) would also be perfect to wear with jeans and a white t-shirt.
