Spring 2013 Pantone Color Report

Yay! Spring is here! The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and the temperature is finally creeping past 50 degrees. That means it’s time to put away the riding boots and break out the flats for this seasonal transition. Whenever the temperatures change, my favorite color palettes tend to change as well. Now I am shoving my maroon and hunter green garments to the back of my closet in an effort to utilize my pastel and bright springtime colored clothes.

A few months ago, I posted about Pantone’s color of 2013, Emerald. Additionally, Pantone has posted their Spring 2013 color report. Pantone’s picks are featured below.

I am super excited for the chartreuse-y “Tender Shoots”…it is one of those “knock your socks off colors.” If “Tender Shoots” is a bit too bright for your tastes, then “Dusk Blue” and “Grayed Jade”  are sure to be flattering shades for every skin tone.

If you prefer a more conservative color palette, then “Linen” , which is a creamy ivory/beige, and “Monaco Blue”- a cross between royal blue and navy, will be your go-to picks.

“African Violet” and “Emerald” would be delightful when featured in a sundress. These colors would also be perfectly appropriate for attending graduations and weddings.

If you are looking to make a bold and bright impression, turn to the flirty “Poppy Red” and and juicy “Nectarine.”
