In the summer of 2020 it was a strong yellow, in the spring of 2021 it was a soft shade of vanilla, which we are completely enthusiastic about. We'll show you how to combine the trend color vanilla to create real eye-catching outfits.
We leave saturated colors behind, in spring we love pastel tones. This can also be seen in this new trend nuance: vanilla. A very bright and light yellow that is not only reminiscent of delicious ice cream, but is now also increasingly being shown in the (online) stores at H&M & Co. The great thing about the trend color is that it really gives every outfit a classy or expensive touch. Fashion icons like Leonie Hanne and Aylin König prove this once again on their Instagram feeds. And best of all: Contrary to the assumption that the light yellow is only available to people with a dark complexion, everyone can wear the trend color – regardless of what skin type you have!
How to combine the trend color vanilla
Although the color is very delicate and reserved, it is quite special. So a few tips on what to look out for when combining can not hurt. For example, did you know that the colors Illuminating and Ultimate Gray will be the Pantone trend colors for 2021? How convenient that vanilla is just a shade of yellow. This shows us: The pastel color can be combined perfectly with a light gray and is therefore still totally hip this year.
You can of course also wear vanilla with other subtle tones such as black or brown. Your outfit will be a real eye-catcher if you combine the color with white. This is how you spray pure summer vibes! But similar nuances such as beige or cream look fantastic with vanilla and make your look look even more valuable – even if you are actually only wearing sweatpants with a trench coat:
It becomes much looser if you combine the tone with classic jeans pieces such as a denim jacket or trousers.
Trend color vanilla: The most beautiful parts in the tone
If you want to slowly approach the trend at first, you can, for example, use a summer dress – you don't have to combine so much here. At H&M we found a beautiful model made of a linen mix with a cute floral pattern:
Or would you like the chic version made of satin? After all, slip dresses are also totally hip in 2021:
Combine a few sandals and accessories such as sunglasses, hat and backpack and the look is there. If it's still too cold for the outfit, you can also wear a denim jacket and boots with it.
A great alternative that doesn't depend on the weather is a simple top in vanilla. This can usually be easily combined with many basics from your closet. For example with casual mom jeans and rough boots as well as a light coat. We found a perfect top at H&M:
If you like it a bit more casual at the moment, understandably, you can simply grab cool sweatpants in the shade. They are also available at H&M for 14.99 euros:
Of course, other colors are also popular in spring. You can find out which ones are in our gallery with the most beautiful trend pieces in March:
