Hello everyone, welcome back and Happy New Year, we’re now officially in the year of 2017!! Hence, to kick start the brand new year I have decided to share with you the in-trend colours you should start rocking this Spring. If you always take note of what the Pantone Color Institute a.k.a. the global color authority said, then make sure you keep on reading as I’ve compounded the top 10 shades which recognised by PANTONE in this blogpost. 2017 is the year which inspired by the nature, it gives you the sense of vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors. The colours range from bright and vivid to muted tone that convey earthy accent.
1. Greenery | Pantone 15-0343
In 2017, you’ll probably spot green everywhere. This is because, greenery is the colour of the year. Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green that consists of a little mixture of yellow and blue, or warmth and a certain cool. It reminds us on the first days of Spring, when nature’s green revive, restore and renew. It also signals us to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate. Aside form these, it is also the colour that symbolise hopefulness, and of our connection of nature.
How to wear: It ain’t easy to wear this green as it might not complement every skin complexion. Hence, I suggest to start small such as accessories i.e. earrings, cap. Then, working up to the yellow-green shade once you’re sure your complexion can handle it.
2. Niagara | Pantone 17-4123
Niagara is the classic denim-like blue that speaks to out desire for ease, relaxation as well as calmness. This colour is comfortable and dependable, hence it leads the PANTONE Fashion Colour Report as the most prevalent colour for Spring 2017. Not to mention, you can easily find this colour in your current wardrobe as I believe everyone owns at least a pair of denim jeans. So, what are you waiting for? Start rocking Niagara hue!
How to wear: As I mentioned, Niagara is the colour which you can find it easily as long as you’re a fan of denim. The best way to channel this It shade is by wearing denim on denim. If you prefer subtle manner, you can always wear this colour with white as they will complement each other.
3. Pale Dogwood | Pantone 13-1404
