While you were thinking about prepping your wardrobe for fall, Pantone was busy drawing up the color report for Spring 2015. The Pantone Color Institute announced its top ten shades for Spring 2015 to coincide with the kickoff of New York Fashion Week, and we're already loving the gemstone-like hues.
The Spring 2015 color palette will move toward the cooler hues that evoke a soothing feeling. "Many feel compelled to be connected around the clock because we are afraid we’ll miss something important. There is a growing movement to step out and create ‘quiet zones’ to disconnect from technology and unwind, giving ourselves time to stop and be still," said Leatrice Eisman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institue. "Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.”
Cool blue and green hues lead the pack for Spring 2015, with some soothing pastels and warmer tones mixed in. Aquamarine, Scuba Blue, Lucite Green and Classic Blue all possess green and blue hues reminiscent of the calming waves in the ocean. Toasted Almond and Glacier Gray are staple neutral colors that help balance other shades without taking away from their own beauty. Marsala has a warm red-brown tone that has a sophisticated and earthy feel. Strawberry Ice, Tangerine and Custard remind us that no spring palette is complete without its traditional pastel colors. All three shades have an energizing quality that we all so closely associate with this season of renewal.
Keep an eye out for these colors when you're itching to stock up on springy attire. Which color from the Pantone Spring 2015 Color Report is your favorite?
