Spring 2014 Fashion Color Report, Part One

Spring is on the horizon and we’re already shopping around for the Spring 2014 trends that were displayed on the runway (see our trend report here and here) this past fall. While we often look at shapes and prints and specific pieces of a runway look, one thing to also consider for seasonal fashion is color. Fortunately, we have backup when it comes to determining what colors are hot and which ones are not, with the Pantone Fashion Color Trend Report.

So what colors should you be on the lookout for in Spring 2014? We’ve got you covered…

Spring '14: Placid Blue

A pale blue hue, this color reminds me of a beautifully clear sky! From frilly dresses to blouses perfect for the office, Placid Blue is one color that you don’t have to fear. Not too bright, not too loud -- this color is absolutely perfect for spring!

Spring '14 - Violet Tulip

Reminiscent of beautiful spring flowers, Violet Tulip works in any shade. A deep purple makes for the perfect top or pair of statement flats while lighter shades add a pop of color with a chandelier necklace. Not sure you can pull it off? Try this shade on your nails or with a fun new wallet.

Spring '14 - Hemlock

Not quite shamrock, not quite mint, Hemlock brings to mind fresh cut grass and full-leaved trees. This classy color is ideal for those looking for a fun piece of jewelry like a new watch or ring. A jewel embellished sweater or blazer is another way to wear this trend without looking like a weed.

Spring '14 - Paloma

From shades of gray to metallic silvers, Paloma is a classic! This is one color that literally anyone can wear so no excuses! Invest in a pair of flats or pumps or a versatile dress. Accessorize with a new bag like this Michael Kors Hamilton tote or nail polish like the NARS color above.

Spring '14 - Sand

While I am a huge proponent of color, I have to say that this nude shade is my favorite this season! Anyone who knows me knows that I love the beach so you can expect that I will be adorning myself with “Sand”. Pair a girly skater skirt with a basic white tank, grab a versatile scarf, or a classic shoulder bag to be on trend this spring.

This is only half of the colors you should be on the lookout for this spring. Stay tuned for part two later this week. Which one are you most excited about so far? How are you planning to implement them into your looks?
