The Colors of Spring

It has reached that time of year where I am done with winter.  Done.  I've celebrated all the traditionally cold winter holidays, had my fill of jackets and hot chocolate, experienced the annual 2-inch snow fall and I'm ready to move on.  I'm ready to start dreaming up my spring wardrobe.  And what better place to start than looking at what colors are in this year.  

Pantone puts out an annual fashion color report that breaks down what colors to wear in the upcoming season.  My favorite out of the bunch include slate gray, fuchsia red, super lemon, palace blue, and dark citron.

"With bluish-green undertones, cool Slate Gray is a nuanced neutral that can be paired with any of the other colors"  

"With its blue undertones, this cool red is a real show-stopper, adding a sense of elegance to the palette."

"Super Lemon brings a fun, optimistic outlook to the palette.  Its luminosity is determined to evoke a smile and attract the roving consumer's eyes."

"Palace Blue, a favorite among designers, takes a steadfast, classic, spring navy-like tone and makes it sparkle.  Paired with just about any color in the report, it offers many intriguing spring combinations."

"Dark Citron, a citrus-inspired green, is calmer and more serious than most, offering an element of sophistication to the mix."
