As you may remember Christine posted a fantastic article on Pantone’s color for fall called: Mars-what? Pantone Colour of the year. She did a great job telling us who Pantone is, why they are able to announce the color of the year, and how to wear said color. Please go and read it to refresh your memory or to learn something new!
Although Pantone announces a color of the year, they don’t stop there. They also announce a color of the season! Since fall is behind us and winter is slooooowly coming to a close, we thought it was important to introduce you to the next color, or in this case, set of colors to be on the lookout for. Dont’ fret marsala is still represented…
As you can see, almost every color of the rainbow is represented here. However there is one similarity in all the colors. Pantone said it best when they wrote, “This season there is a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic, ethereal mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage as designers draw from daydreams of simpler times. Remembrances of retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes restore a sense of well-being as we head into warmer months.”
Wow that sentence itself made me relax. The thought is this… while our culture moves from the perceived sexiness of constantly being “on the go” to actually appreciating the times where we can be unplugged, in a quiet space basking in the beauty of nature, our clothes will be representing that that movement as well!
So while you start to think about your Spring wardrobe and as our stores are transitioning from winter to spring clothes, take a look at these colors and think about the new pieces you want to include in your closet. And remember Christine’s simple tip: if your budget won’t let you buy a new look every season, grab a nail polish and display your stylish self on your fingers!
