Pantone’s Color Palette for Spring/Summer 2015

Pantone releases their color report for each season, and this year’s Spring/Summer line up is beautiful! Paired perfectly with the Color of the Year, Marsala, the Spring/Summer 2015 Color Report steps away from the bold jewel tones of the fall, and embraces a softer and warmer palette.

Aquamarine

This beautiful pale blue will definitely be found in all of the floral patterns we’re seeing for this season. Might be a little too light for eye shadow though…

 

 

Scuba Blue

Try this vibrant hue with jewelry or a fun top. It’s a bold punch of color that will brighten up any look, whether it’s at work or out on the town. You can also try a Scuba Blue skirt in the awesome new scuba material that is so popular right now!

 

 

Lucite Green

This pale color almost defies description. The perfect melding of blue and green make this an endlessly versatile shade that can be mixed and matched throughout your wardrobe.

 

 

 

Classic Blue
Classic Blue

 

They call it classic for a reason – it goes with everything! From accessories to shoes, from dresses to blazers; this perfect shade of blue can be a pop or color, or a solid neutral.

 

 

Toasted Almond

We love this new neutral! A great nude tone with a hint of pink, you can pair this with bold colors, or try it with some other neutral shades for a fashion-forward monochromatic look. You’ll look much better than Kim Kardashian in all those neutrals.

 

 

Strawberry Ice

The perfect pink for summer! Neon can be too intense, but pastels can feel washed out and wimpy. This pink is strong without being overwhelming, just like a good girlfriend, mother-in-law, or perfume.

 

 

Tangerine

We’re just going to say it; orange doesn’t get enough love. Try pairing this color with some navy blue. Trust us the combination is AMAZING!

 

 

 

Custard

Another great neutral for this season. In addition to adding this color into your wardrobe, it might also inspire you to try making custard!

 

 

 

Marsala

The fabulous color of the year can really be included in any aspect of your wardrobe. Check out our post on all things Marsala.

 

 

 

Glacier Gray

Is it blue? Is it gray? Who cares, it’s awesome. This icy shade would be great for some slip on sneakers, or even a new eye shadow shade.

 

 

 

Dusk Blue
Dusk Blue

 

This one is definitely blue, and it’s definitely gorgeous. Try a scarf or pendant necklace in this color and pair it with some shades of green or even purple.

 

 

 

Treetop

Green is often an overlooked wardrobe color. But this deep shade would be beautiful with a variety of neutrals and would stand out in the sea of blues and pinks this summer.

 

 

Woodbine

Is it brown? Is it green? Is it greige? We don’t know what it is, but we know we want a light jacket or vest in this color.

 

 

 

Sandstone

Warning: this color may look flesh-toned, but it’s not. You are probably not this pink. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have legs for days if you get some pumps in this color!

 

 

Titanium

This is literally the perfect gray/blue shade. Work pants in this color will be completely professional, but super on trend.

 

 

 

Lavender Herb
Lavender Herb

 

It’s a great color, great scent, and great flower. You will probably want a lavender top and some lavender lotion to wear with it.

 

 

What colors will you be trying this season?
