With the rain and snow still bombarding our lives (at least for people in Europe and parts of the US) I cannot help but indulge on the beauty of the newly released Spring ’14 collections; getting a taste of the fresh colors and body sculpting silhouettes I want to just fast forward a couple of months to start enjoying them myself.
Here is a list of the “must have” colors for Spring 2014 compiled by Pantone
1- Placid Blue – sky blue; Bring the skies into your closet this season with this ever so fresh hue of blue that goes well with almost any color
2- Violet Tulip – vintage purple. This color goes with almost any skin tone and matches with several different colors if you are feeling rather daring
3- Hermlock – ornament green. Very different than any of the other “greens” that have been spotted in previous seasons. The softness of this shade is perfect with colors such as purple and sand
4- Sand – neutral color; slightly lighter than a winter “tan” Sand better fits into the Spring season introducing a refreshing classic for the season
5- Paloma – light cool grey; you might have to replace your whites and creams this season, Paloma looks like it is taking over for the neutrals
6- Cayenne – high pitch red and orange mix; I would introduce large statement silver jewelry if you are planning on pulling this color off as a total look
7- Freesia – blazing yellow; who said just the sun should shine this Spring? Nothing says fresh more than a blazing shade of yellow. Perfect for people with a semi-tan
8- Celosia Orange – Think Hermes; this is another color I would add to the list of total look color. Be it a pair of pants, top, blazer, handbag or strappy sandals this color wins
Dolce & Gabbana
9- Radiant Orchid – Similar to dazzling blue only from the purple family, this color goes perfectly with Hermlock green or as a total color look
10- Dazzling Blue – Bright deep blue. This is a perfect shade of blue to purchase as a total look. The color is so rich, it would look perfect with a pair of shiny silver pumps or strappy flats
What a breath of fresh air – I just cannot wait to get a sun kissed tan and start rocking these ever so fresh colors.
