Pantone released their Spring fashion color report for 2014 recently. I, for one, am quite in love with the colors this Spring. I saw the palate and the colors were not only original, but they all blended well. The palate is the perfect balance between soft pastels and vivid brights. It was inspired by "blooming flowers, travels abroad, and strong, confident women." So basically, all the awesome things in life.
It is ONLY February and snow is still blanketing the ground around the country, but Spring is going to be here before you know it, and you know what that means? That's right! Days at the beach, spring break vacations, and constant warm weather! Also, let's not forget the essentials! J.Crew Shorts, Lily Pulitzer tumblers, Kate Spade Sunglasses, and Jack Rogers. Sigh. It seems so far away.
I always love adding new additions to my wardrobe for each season, and what can be more helpful than Pantone's Fashion Color Trends for Spring 2014 helping me choose items for my wardrobe?
Can there really be an "IT" color? Sure. In 2013 it was Emerald, but in 2014, the color is "Radiant Orchid". It's kind of like a vibrant pink-purple. So fab! This color palate is going to show up in designer home decoration collections and clothing lines all over the world. I can already see these colors influencing Spring and Summer weddings!
