This spring expect to see shades of green, purple, yellow, orange, red and blue. These colors struck a cord with your favorite designers from Rachel Roy to Tracy Reese to Herve Leger to Tommy Hilfiger.
This Spring is all about the balancing act of bright colors with neutrals, and this season Dusk Blue and Grayed Jade are your new neutrals.
My favorite color for the season isn’t Emerald even though its the 2013 color of the year. My favorite color happens to be Poppy Red, “a seductive, sensual celebratory shade.” According to Carmen Marc Valvo, Poppy is a signature color “because of it’s passion and sense of optimism.”
“This season’s color palette emphasizes this need for balance, while at the same time allowing for individuality, self-expression and excitement.”
According the color report:, each color makes a statement :
Emerald: A lively, radiant green, inspires insight and clarity while enhancing our sense of well-being.
Grayed Jade: A subtle, hushed green with a gray undertone, brings about a mood of quiet reflection and response.
Tender Shoots: A vibrant yellow-green is invigorating, active, and cheerful
African Violet: A statement color that brings a touch of intrigue to the palette and can be incorporated into many unexpected combinations.
Dusk Blue: Offers a calming sense of serenity
Monaco Blue: A classic shade that offers both stability and depth to its entire palette
There is so much to look forward to this spring, and your favorite designers give you their take on this springs looks.
Pamela DeVas of Pamella Roland believes a foundation of “Black, White, and Gray using highlights such as Bright Yellow and Blush-the stark contrast of these colors creates an unusual yet clean, palette that is perfect for the modern look of the season.”
Nicole Miller sees Slate as a neutral. “It’s much more interesting than traditional neutrals and complements the other colors prominent in her collection.
