Pantone has released the top hues for spring/summer 2015. With colors like Aquamarine, Scuba Blue, Classic Blue, and Lucite Green, expect a lot of cool and calming colors come spring. The top color trends have an eclectic mix of understated brights, pale pastels, and nature-like neutrals. According to Pantone, designers are stepping toward a minimalistic theme drawing from daydreams of simpler times as we head into the warmer months.
“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.” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.
I love the cooler and softer side of this color spectrum. I find myself constantly smiling because I’m just so enamored by all the colors especially the blue hues. I can’t wait to update my spring wardrobe!
