So I’m sure by now you’ve heard that marsala is the color of 2015, but if you feel like burning all your dark and gloomy shades of clothing right now, then I think you’ll appreciate Pantone’s color report for spring. The roundup features an eclectic mix of sixteen shades, which is described as minimalistic, understated and natural. It’s a breath of fresh air, which is why I’m rounding up some of my favorite pieces in my favorite hues.
Starting with the prettiest of the picks: Strawberry Ice (their names, not mine). You know that I’ve always been a sucker for bold and bright, but I’m actually loving this chilled out shade of pink. Of course, to keep things from looking a little too bubblegum, choose pieces with a little more edge (like this backpack or this graphic sweater) or something more minimalistic (like this clutch or these strappy heels).
If things still feel a little too Pretty Pretty Princess for you, you’ll probably enjoy Toasted Almond a little better. It’s warm, comforting and has a hint of a summer glow that brings balance to the rest of the lineup. I need these sneakers and this tote bag in my life.
Finally, there’s Dusk Blue. It’s calm, quiet and the perfect way to start injecting a little bit of spring into your winter wardrobe right now (new winter coat, anyone?). From strappy heels to lace up sneakers, if you’re still unconvinced that this is one cool shade, let this bag speak for itself.
That’s all I have for now, but stay tuned, because there are still 12 other shades to share! In the meantime, I want to know what’s your favorite color for spring? Leave a message in the comments below and have a wonderful weekend!
