Is it spring yet?! Looking out my window seeing a cold, wet, winter rain has me dreaming about a warm spring day. Thankfully, a few months ago Pantone released their Spring 2016 fashion color report so I can warm myself up looking at the bright colors chosen for this coming season.
According to their report, “colors this season transcend cultural and gender norms”. This unisex palette includes vivid brights and serene natural hues giving “no perceivable distinctions in color choices between men’s and women’s collections”. Brighten up your day by checking out this trending palette:
Rose Quartz: A gentle tone conveying compassion and composure. It evokes images of a calm sunset or flushed cheek. Pairs with: Peach Echo, Serenity, Lilac Gray
Peach Echo: A warm, more tempered member of the orange family. Bring airy romance your palette with this color. Pairs with: Rose Quartz, Serenity, Lilac Gray
Serenity: As its name suggests, this color emanates tranquility and calm. It brings the expansive blue sky a little closer to earth. Pairs with: Buttercup, Snorkel Blue, Peach Echo
Snorkel Blue: A marine and nautical hue. More energetic and playful than other navy family members. Pairs with: Buttercup, Iced Coffee, Peach Echo
Buttercup: This color ushers in the brighter members of this palette. It transports you to sunny, happy, and vibrant place. Pairs with: Snorkel Blue, Serenity, Lilac Gray
Limpet Shell: Another marine hue. It’s crisp and clean without being cold, like the shallow waters of a Caribbean island. Pairs with: Iced Coffee, Peach Echo, Rose Quartz
Lilac Gray: One of the neutrals of this collection. The lilac is a subtle undertone but instantly brightens and warms its gray base. Pairs with: Fiesta, Green Flash, Iced Coffee
Fiesta: This tone is the most energetic of the palette. Truly a color you would wear to a “fiesta” as it brings excitement and a fiery spirit to mind. Pairs with: Snorkel Blue, Green Flash, Limpet Shell
Iced Coffee: An earthy and subtle neutral. This color offers a stable and earthy foundation to build upon. Pairs with: Rose Quartz, Serenity, Lilac Gray
Green Flash: Step out of the box with this “flashy” color. Though positively vibrant, Green Flash still gives the palette an earthiness, like the emergence of bright green grass after a long winter. Pairs with: Snorkel Blue, Serenity, Limpet Shell
I am in love with this palette and am hoping to see some of them during this upcoming wedding season!
