Daffodil Yellow

We first noticed the bloom-like shade making an appearance on the runways of fashion week (duh), and it’s slowly been taking over as the HCIC, Head Color in Charge. As for the tone, bolder is definitely better—you want to find an opaque, rich thickness.

Safety Orange

We’re calling it: Safety orange is the new millennial pink. OK, maybe it isn’t so far reaching yet, but the traffic-stopping hue is definitely one of the most fun ways to celebrate rising temperatures. Bonus: Shades of orange help even the most sun-deprived hands achieve a sun-kissed glow.

Ultra Violet

Meet Pantone’s choice for 2018 Color of the Year, and consider this the vibrant, exciting alternative to traditional spring pastels like lilac or dusty rose.
