The Pantone Spring 2015 Colors To Add To Your Wardrobe Right Now, Because Dang, Fashion Is Impatient
Hey, guess what? You don't have to watch every single show at NYFW to understand what Spring 2015's trendiest colors are going to be. I got you. Well, more like Pantone has got you. They just released their Spring 2015 Fashion Color Report and here's what they have to say about what you'll be wearing come March: Pantone believes there will be an emphasis on cooler, softer hues, from pale blue Aquamarine to icy Glacier Gray. It seems there will also be a strong prominence of blues and grays for Spring, which is a change from last year's popular purples and pinks.
Leatrice Eismean, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, describes this season’s color report as the following:
“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. Color choices follow the same minimalistic, ‘en plein air’ theme, taking a cue from nature rather than being reinvented or mechanically manipulated. Soft, cool hues blend with subtle warm tones to create a soothing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.”
Think: Pastels on vacation. They won't be as bright or eye-catching and will have more of an understated, relaxed look and feel to them.
Here is a full list of the 10 colors Eisman thinks you should incorporate into your fashion and beauty palettes come March 20. Good thing there's plenty of time to stock up.
"Aquamarine is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer."
