My future’s so bright, I’ve gotta wear shades.

Hello, Spring! 

In conjunction with New York Fashion Week, the PANTONE Fashion Color Report provides a comprehensive overview of fashion designers’ use of color in their Spring 2017 collections. Featuring the top 10 shades seen on the runway, the PANTONE Fashion Color Report is your essential color guide to the season.

Drumroll, please…

PANTONE Fashion Color Report- Spring 2017, including the “2017 Color of the Year”, Greenery.

Unless you dress in all black (I’ve been guilty of that from time to time), this palette really has something for everyone.  I love the fact that it isn’t too pastel, or too neon, just a nice medium array of jewel tones that in my opinion, are reminiscent of fashion of the nineteen sixties.  I believe that we will be seeing more sixties inspired prints this season as well, thanks to styles recently re-introduced to the runway by Roberto Cavalli

As stated in studies of color psychology, color can manipulate mood.  Think about the weather and the seasons… With the exception of the oh so glorious Christmas season, is Winter not the dreariest time of year?  There’s something about that first glimpse of Spring that puts a smile on everyone’s face (similar to this lovely palette of naturalistic hues).  In Atlanta, the masses flock to patios all over the city, moving the party outside.  Piedmont Park is bustling with dog walkers, picnickers, frisbee throwers, and Mimosa drinkers.  My husband says that when he sees the first bumblebees, he knows we’re out of the dark.  So bring your shades, because we’re about to have another “Summer of Love”.
