Limpet Shell- How To Rock This Hot Mermaid Inspired Runway Colour


While muted pastel shades and sleek ivory hues may be synonymous with summertime, embracing vibrant colours is the perfect way to capture the breezy spirit in the air. For Summer 2016, Pantone Universe’s soft aqua Limpet Shell shade has officially made a splash on the season’s runways. Whether you’re headed to the office or to a party, here are a few inspiring ways to rock the trend now.

Casual Chic

For your day off, capture the patchwork inspired colour scheme on display at Blumarine. Strut the sidewalks in a flowing, bohemian inspired frock with colourblocked sections of Limpet Shell, beige, black and coral. The look of fluttery long sleeves adds whimsical summertime charm to your look, while coordinating strappy flat sandals can bring your style to an entirely new level.

Work Wear

Whether you have a morning meeting or a long day with work functions, elevate your corporate style with the aesthetic spotted on the Alexis Mabille runway. Pair a zippered pale aqua blue blazer with a crispy, loosely knotted white blouse. For a feminine finishing touch, flatter your look with a flowy matching skirt and a pair of bejewelled sandals.


If you want to channel your inner princess, take your sartorial cues from the Oscar de la Renta catwalk and step out in a Limpet Shell-hued ball gown. Meanwhile, a voluminous pleated hemline, thick straps and waist-cinching cut help to emphasize your proportions for an hourglass silhouette. Accessorize your fairy tale frock with dangling shoulder-dusting earrings and embellished green flats.
