Spring Colors Are to Dye For


It's no surprise that spring is the season for pastels. But if pink is too flirty for you, the runways offered up dip dyes, ombré (where the dye fades from light to dark), and tie-dyes to ease you into the season's palette. We first spotted the look at Burberry in Milan where the signature khaki trench coats looked like they took a dip in chocolate milk and the pants had variations which included gray-to-black and brown-to-black. This week in Paris, Dries Van Noten opted for his patterned orange frock to merge into pastel yellow, while Vivienne Westwood stretched the color wheel by blending tangerine orange with minty green. And Emanuel Ungaro used every color blue in Crayola crayon box (including cerulean) for his dye job. Check out more fashionable fades, and click ahead for our slideshow.
