This spring season is full of dramatic clothing styles and colors but it also has subtle and soft feminine colors that you normally think of when it’s spring.
Pantone always chooses colors for the seasons.
Pantone is a global leader in color standards for the fashion industry. This season they choose colors that are bold and vivid, with colors ranging the spectrum including tangelo orange, bright green, bright blue and acid yellow. Designers use these colors as a palette for their collections.
Not only do they incorporate the actual colors, but they also use ultra-soft and calm tints and tones of these colors as well.
Let’s look at Viva Magenta.
What is Viva Magenta? Chosen for its upbeat appearance, viva magenta is a red shade rooted in nature. Think roses, beets and red cochineal beetles.
The designers have made magenta sweaters and dresses with this color incorporated for a strong bold look. These Blank dresses are in this category because the colors are strong and vivid and empowering with pink and red on this satiny dress.
Look at this beautiful dress by Bl^nk, that embodies the colors of Spain with ribs of gold running through violet, green and blue. Envision yourself wearing it to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, for an opera. All eyes are on you, because you look so spectacular.
Now on the opposite spectrum, we have these soft palette colors by designer En Saison.
Soft, ethereal, and feminine in both design and look. Small floral prints and solids with embroidery and texture in the fabric are light and feel airy. The colors are pastel shades of pinks and purples as well as ivory, blush and blues.
