Hey ladies. It’s Anna from Fash Boulevard. While an ultra chic neutral ensemble will always be a refreshing treat, there’s no denying the imprint a colorful outfit can leave on a fashion addicts heart. For over 50 years, Pantone (the self proclaimed authority of color) has been bringing style-a-holics everywhere the “color of the year” as well as the always anticipated seasonal color trends. When it comes to this color authority, the fashion industry, technology companies, and interior designers all turn to this forecasted color palette for the latest color trends. This year the “color of the year” is emerald and the spring 2013 color palette is glittered with blues, pinks and even a zesty lime green. You don’t have to be Karl Lagerfeld to find Pantone’s color forecast helpful, knowing the “it” colors of the season can trigger the stylist within and help navigate you through an on-trend wardrobe reinvention. Keep these popular Pantone colors in mind when shopping this spring and don’t be shy when it comes to creating creative combinations with this specially selected spring color palette.
