Shades to Beat the Heat

Spring/Summer 2015 Colour Trend

At Red Polka, this week, we put together a summer edition with pleasant pastels for you to beat the heat. We observed how this season there is a shift toward the cooler and softer side of the spectrum. With our eclectic and ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels, and nature-like neutrals taking center stage, we hope to restore a sense of well-being as we head into warmer months. Enjoy!


The very first, and one of the most delicate shades in our pastel palette is aquamarine, coming with its soothing and pleasant tones. What makes this shade so unique is probably the exclusively calming and cool effect it spreads.

Scuba Blue

The second most popular shade this season is Scuba Blue.  It brings the sultry-sea feel with it. Scuba Blue combines the entire fashion world’s charm with a specific feminine feel, and a fresh lustre.

Lavender Herb

Lavender Herb is a shade rich in nostalgia. Lavender Herb is also a creative shade; one that will add a distinctive colour pop whether worn on its own or combined with the other top Spring/Summer 2015 colours. The royalty this colour gets along with it is a yummy result, one like a blueberry cheese cake.

Toasted Almond

Toasted Almond is a sun-tanned neutral. It offers comforting warmth, and will highlight your spontaneous self loving the spring, summer feeling. Timeless and versatile, Toasted Almond is an organic shade that will give a nice nutty texture to your wardrobe.

Strawberry Ice

The colour is seductive, luscious and fresh. Take a break from all the greens and blues and have fun with a dash of fruit. Both tasty and tasteful, Strawberry Ice is a confection colour that evokes a feeling that flatters and evokes a healthy glow.

Custard is a yummy-licious colour that will make your wardrobe feeling as sweet as a dessert. It is a cheering tone that brings thoughts of pleasant relaxation and comfort food. Engaging with its soft and mellow warmth and full of good feelings, subtle Custard has a natural and easy disposition.

Glacier Gray

Glacier Gray is an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances. Like custard, this is also best used for fabric backgrounds, as it allows other fresh colours to take center stage. Nature’s most perfect neutral, Glacier Gray is a shade that is timeless.
