Pantone Color Trends For Spring : Part 1

Let’s talk about the Pantone Color Trends. For this post, I’m discussing Apsen Gold, Pepper Stem, Princess Blue, and Terrarium Moss

So, I recognize some of you may not know the beautiful world of Pantone.  In fact, I was sitting with my significant other and I brought up my idea for this post and he blankly had no idea what the concept was as to why Pantone exists.

So let me break it down. Pantone is like the god of colors. They were the first people to organize a system of colors to match. An incredibly important element to any designer or creative’s life, but others may go their entire life without knowing they exist.

The concept behind it is if you find a color that is absolutely perfect for your project while you are digitally creating it, and then you go to make your big beautiful billboard with this color, how can you be SURE it will look the way you think. Pantone fixed this by creating color charts, numbers, and samples all to accurately color match.

Since then they have expanded to marketing endeavors like The color of the year- which this is year is Living Coral.

But, that is not exactly the focus of this post, although it’s a great choice of color.

Pantone also does a roundup of colors prominent on each major fashion runway season. They compile their research and land on approximately 12 colors that are all the rage that season and year, and then 3-4 neutrals that have also been a consistent theme.

So this post is focusing on the spring summer colors of 2019.  If you guys like this post, I will work my way through all the spring and summer colors (comment below if you’re in favor of this ).

So the first 4 colors I’m showing you how to wear for spring summer are –

Pepper Stem, Aspen Gold, Princess Blue, and Terrarium Moss.

So lets dive in.

Pantone ASPEN GOLD

I am really starting to love yellow. Being a New York gal I would sometimes sway from color but this most recent dance with color has left me extremely happy.

Apsen yellow is bright but muted, if that makes sense? No? Ok, well the color has a lot of pigment behind it, but it not neon or highlighter in nature.  It still has a subtly about it, that I love.

I opted for an all yellow dress that is perfect for spring and so easy to wear. When you wear such a bright color, you don’t need to add too much more with accessories.  Let the color be loud, and the accessories just support the shining star.

Pantone PEPPER STEM

This would not have been a color I thought I would gravitate to when first seeing it within the color block. . BUT! Then I realized it’s actually the perfect spring military green color. Military is another one of those spring trends that is everywhere.  But, I don’t always want to wear a darker army green.  This is a great option to wear for a lighter, more spring friendly green.

It also pairs really well as a subtle accessory color. Add a pepper stem accessory to a neutral outfit and it will add so much depth.

Pepper stem is actually a beautiful color for spring, you can use it through a military inspired piece, as a subtle accessory, or a simple color outfit choice. All work.

Pantone PRINCESS BLUE

So, this blue is a lot! That was my first thought. And then I realized, well actually it’s very close to a true blue denim. And-  I love a good Canadian Tuxedo.

So I think a fun way to use princess blue is through your denim, or denim on denim like this look.

It’s something you’ll always wear, and it still gets the spirit of the blue out there. It’s bold yet manageable.

Just how I Like my colors.

Pantone TERRARIUM MOSS

OK, this is that darker shade of army green I was referencing before.  It doesn’t scream spring per se, but it does scream sophistication. It is a beautiful, and chic color.  I liked to consider this a colored neutral.  It goes with about anything and it’s a lovely base for other pops of color shown here.

Don’t be afraid to rock a military jumpsuit in this color or a full dress. If it feels to heavy just add a pop of color (like orange) to bolden it up.
