What’s Going to Be Hot for Spring Fashion Colors?

Although many fashionistas love the warm and cozy winter garbs they get to pull together for the season, it won’t be long before we all are wishing for spring again. Pantone must have known that our winter blues would soon be setting in because they have released their 2017 Spring Fashion Color Report. That means it is time for us crafters to hunker down and get started on some spring fashion items to be ready to show off in the springtime sun.

This year’s mix of hues give off a wave of calm with a spike of excitement. Pantone chose 10 spring colors with natural vibes – both vivid and earthy. The first color, called Niagara, is a classic denim-like blue that breathes comfort. And, when paired with Primrose Yellow – a warm, joyful yellow – it could make a beautiful top and cardigan set for spring. You could even choose to mix in white and create a floral pattern in a capri pant.

If you are seeking a brighter, more intense blue for your spring creations, Pantone’s Lapis Blue is exactly what you are looking for. Comparable to cobalt, Lapis Blue is the perfect statement color for a bold scarf or a simple spring shift dress. Tone it down with a color like Kale, a foliage-based green, to bring together a natural ocean-meets-land type of outfit. Lush Kale could also be used in accent pieces like a shawl, shoes or large brimmed hat.

Two of the subtler colors in Pantone’s collection – Pale Dogwood, a peaceful pink, and Hazelnut, an earthy nude – will both be easy to incorporate into your sewing projects for spring. Both colors could be layered in a camisole or tank top with one of Pantone’s brighter spring colors like Greenery, a flourishing yellow-green, or Pink Yarrow, a tropical pink. Try incorporating these colors into your outfits by making silk belts, organza headbands or long-sleeved, lightweight sweaters.

For another beautiful combination of bright and calm, get ready to walk out into a spring day in Flame, a theatrical red-based orange, or Island Paradise, a refreshing aqua. For an upscale occasion, create a flame A-line dress with an Island Paradise shawl and shoes to match. This intriguing color combination will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.
