The fall 2013 collections have already been shown, and it seems like spring 2013 was ages ago. But in the real world, the spring/summer season is upon us, and many of the trends shown almost a year in advance are starting to catch on. Cue the colorful suits.

Designers are turning their backs on traditional black, grey, and navy suits for spring/summer 2013. From subtle pastels to loud neons, the pieces are getting revamped with a heavy dose of color. I’m a big fan of black, white, and neutrals, so I’m kind of surprised to be so into this concept. Regardless, it’s kind of refreshing to see how some collections completely deviated from the typical standard of dress.

Gucci owned this trend with an entire spectrum of the menswear staple. Both bold and bashful blues were shown alongside scorchingly hot pinks, oranges, reds, and other shades. Paul Smith is no stranger to color, featuring similar hues. Meanwhile, Riccardo Tisci included a few pale pink pieces amongst his print-heavy collection for Givenchy. Suits from Salvatore Ferragamo, Hermès, and Mugler also got in on the trend.

You’ve got to have balls to rock these colorful suits, but if you can truly own the styles, then go for it! As shocked as I am about enjoying these looks, I’m an advocate for trying something different. This is one trend I can stand behind.

Check out my favorite colorful suits from spring/summer 2013 below!
