In many places winter still remains in full affect, but our hearts are in the future with spring. Pantone released it’s colors of the year for the spring 2016 season and they’re everything we could’ve hoped for and more. Rose Quartz and Serenity which I would call a beautiful pastel pink and baby blue, puts me in the mood for cotton candy. Pantone really surprised me, and gave us a little bonus this year, if you are not a “pink” person you have an awesome alternative color and are still able to stay on trend.
If you are not aware, Pantone creates the colors used for everything from web design to manufacturing. Each color is assigned a specific number and is one of a kind. Ever wonder how designers know what the “it” color will be for the season? Or how during Fashion Week you may see common color themes? Well, fashion houses are given the details well in advance to create coordinating designs and the color is released to the masses just in time for the upcoming season. The release of hues through pantone each season is how you will find the perfect stiletto heels to match a dress you bought perfectly from two different designers. Or even how you will find dupes for hard to find lipsticks colors as in vamp or oxblood for last winter’s color release.
These colors make us happy! They are break from the high contrast colors released we’ve seen from seasons past and are extra “girl”, which we love. What do you think of them? What’s your fav?
