Pantone “It” Colors

When Pantone speaks, trendsetters listen. So when earthy red Marsala was announced as Spring 2015’s “it” color, it became a must-have hue for everything from makeup to home décor.

Wondering what else is in the color cards this year? Custard yellow, Glacier Gray, Lucite Green, Classic Blue, Toasted Almond, and Strawberry Ice are all playing supporting roles in Spring 2015.

Get ahead of the trend and start sporting Pantone’s “It” palette with pops of on-point color in unexpected ways. Creamy custard yellow looks great with a little embellishment, like goldtone beads and faceted studs. Keep neutrals like Glacier Gray interesting by selecting an unconventional silhouette like a slouchy harem pant. Keep it simple by rocking a basic long-sleeved tee in Lucite Green. Everyone should have Classic Blue in their wardrobe, and a staple cardigan with an asymmetrical cut will last you clear through spring. Toasted Almond will never go out of style, and neither will a classic peacoat. Finally, the delicate pink of Strawberry Ice is best served as a feminine chiffon peplum blouse.

In addition to incorporating these pieces into your wardrobe, take your style status up a notch by pairing them in unexpected combinations. We love how the bold Lucite Green looks with a pared-down Toasted Almond. Custard Yellow and Classic Blue make a great pair for a varsity-inspired look. Glacier Gray and Strawberry Ice are pretty pastels to help you usher in spring!
