This Quirky Microtrend Borrows From A Sprite Can, And It’s So Good

This Quirky Microtrend Borrows From A Sprite Can, And It’s So Good

If you’re a lover of neutrals, you may want to sit this season out. Ultra pigmented hues—of all shades of the color wheel—have emerged as a huge trend this year to the point that it’s nearly impossible to escape. Even as a fashion editor of over six years who’s just about seen it all, I can’t recall a year in the industry as vibrant as 2022. Fashion has collectively entered its Lisa Frank era.  And while all hues seem to be getting shine right now, (tangerine and hot pink among them), an unusual hyperspecific color combo has particularly caught my attention. I first noticed it at the SS’22 Theophilio show where palettes of green, yellow and red were reoccurring themes within the collection. Weeks later, Bottega Veneta and Versace’s vivid spring presentations convinced me yellow and green as a power duo is here to stay. From the high street to the runways, yellow and electric green, or what I like to call Sprite dressing, is the unexpected outfit pairing taking over the scene. And although the fashion crowd is never afraid to experiment with seemingly unusual color combinations, this one is the most audacious thus far. The bright hues may evoke a little reluctance, but trust me when I say this microtrend can be a lot more approachable IRL. For proof, I’ve outlined my favorite interpretations of the growing trend as well as outfit ideas for giving Sprite styling a go for yourself. Keep scrolling to see it all.

Style tip: No brainer suiting—like this linen vest suit— hits the right note of sophistication without trying too hard. The rich olive undertone of the Prada pumps also contrasts well with the delicate shade of pale yellow.

Style tip: Layer a pale yellow blazer over a lime green matching set for a polished ensemble that also commands attention.

Style tip: Get in on the micro-mini wave with this green skirt from Zara. The addition of the off-the-shoulder top creates a cool silhouette that feels seductive and sleek.

Style tip: Green suiting has been a rising trend all on its own this season, and coordinated with a yellow top specifically, has been a go-to style among stylists and designers.

Style tip: If you’re aiming to go brighter, try a deeper shade of yellow like this canary yellow Staud dress.

Style tip: For a more subtle approach, try monochromatic green as your main focus and compliment it with a yellow accessory.

Style tip: A yellow sundress always feels on point for the warmer months. Green satin slides keeps up the tropical vibe without leaning too far into color-blocking territory.

Style tip: Experiment with adding a colorful boot to the mix of your favorite poplin short set. Green shoes with a yellow ensemble creates a nice visual pairing.

Style tip: When in doubt, color blocking will always score points. Use slightly different tones of green to add dimension.
