Pantone Colors make me swoon, I’m so excited to incorporate the Spring 2014 Pantone Colors in my wardrobe! Are you? As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten bolder in incorporating an array of colors into my wardrobe and in my life- even painting my office that gorgeous shade of #81D8D0 A.K.A. Tiffany Blue.
If you’re on a budget, you probably want to know how to use the Spring 2014 Pantone Colors in your wardrobe without having to spend a lot. I hear you sister! You can pick a few of these colors to mix and max for a new look, or you can simply go the route of buying a few accessories in these fabulous shades. I even recommend you print out the following guide (or save it to your phone) so you can access it when you shop!
While I do love Pantone Colors, I don’t see them as gospel for my 2014 shade obsessions. Currently, I’m lusting over lemon yellow, electric blue, mint, shades of coral (from the pink end to the red variety) and taupe.
I do though, see the Pantone Color Report for Spring 2014 as a great guideline if you’re looking to incorporate a few on-trend colors to your wardrobe and you don’t know where to start.
Radiant Orchid was named as the Pantone Color of the Year, I’m particularly fond of this color for nails and lip colors. Plus, it can pair really well with some of your other faves, like pinks, blues and that fabulous shade of mint (also: Hemlock) I currently am obsessed with.
If you’re looking for a way to add Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year, to your wardrobe I would recommend to blend it in with other colors you already love. The Radiant Orchid pashima scarf below would pair really well with a grey blazer or a grey sweater (AKA Paloma for the Pantone loyal), even with white tops and jeans. It doesn’t have to be the epicenter of your wardrobe, making you look Barney-ish, but instead, just a pop of color when you’re struggling to dress up a winter wardrobe into a new season.
Essie’s take on Radiant Orchid is such a gorgeous nail color. Even if you just used this with your fave little black dress you’ll look sharp, without having to try too hard. I’ve long said it, nail polish is the best way to play with color.
For $8 or less for a good nailpolish in an on-trend color, you can explore how a color interacts with your skin tone for a few days without having to commit to an outfit piece. Your nail color will excellently demonstrate how a color looks with your complexion!
So, do you get gaga for Pantone’s colors or do you swoon to your own shades?
