Colors for Summer We Just Can’t Live Without!

Now that it’s finally feeling a little like summer we can’t contain our excitement for everything color.  Nature wakes up in all it’s glory and the food on our plates is so much brighter too.  Even the clothing in our closets bloom thankfully from the more somber neutrals of winter.  If you love to be on trend with your closet then the 2019 New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer color palette from Pantone really sparkles.

Deep, rich and magnificent, Pantone’s spectrum of colors for spring and summer this year are wonderfully sophisticated and truly reflect this vibrant time of year.  While pulling out your summer wardrobe pieces keep an eye out for these colors –  we were definitely happy to find some in our own Julianna Rae Closet!


Yellow just shouts summer, it reminds us of summer sunsets, a festive beach towel, the pop and snap of fresh summer corn in our mouths and a bright, sweet glass of lemonade.

What to throw on after a perfect day in the sunshine?  Our Moonlight Serenade Silk Short Robe!


This color is no joke! It is deep and sultry like a hot summer night.  It makes us think strawberry popsicles, cherry pie, and about a walk through the rose garden with a chilled sangria in hand.

My Newest Crush Silk Pj and the Paradise Found Silk Slip Nightgown in Sorbet are two excellent ways to add this beautiful deep red color into your day and night!


We love this color because it is just so bright and cheerful.  It makes us want to kick off our shoes and walk barefoot in the sand!


Another versatile piece!  The Sweet Indulgence Camisole top (shown in Kirsch) will reveal glowing skin by day and keep you cool between the covers on sultry nights.


This color shouts fresh!  Like a trip to the farmers market or a walk through a cool, shaded forest.  This is a perfect color for a season of renewal.

Want to add this luscious color to your closet?  Look for our Paradise Found Silk Slip Nightgown in Calista.


This dazzling color reflects all of what sizzles about summer.  


What’s cooler than cotton in the summer?  Well naked of course!  But if you must cover up try a pair of Play Favorites Short Sleeve Cotton PJ’s in Azalea.


This shade of blue shimmers like a jewel!  We want to wear it to bed on a starry night or during the day for a splash of color in the office.

Dazzle at your next summer party by pairing the Silk Tresor Camisole Top in parisian with a pair of silk shorts and heels for an ooh la la look!


This shade of pink infused lavender is so perfect for summer.  Sweet like a pastry or dreamy like a dawn sky, although soft, it is definitely feminine and strong at the same time!

Cheerful right?  We can’t describe it any better and that’s how we feel when we wake up in the Midnight Beauty Silk Chemise topped with the Ariadne Silk Robe (both in delicate).  If prints are your thing the J’Adore Short Cotton Nightgown and super comfy J’Adore Cotton Spa Robe in Vive is a delightful combo.
