When it comes to trends, it’s always good to be ahead of the game. Whether you’re a rising blogger who needs to know what’s what, or if you’re about to start planning your wedding and want to make sure your bridesmaid’s dresses aren’t so last season, it definitely helps to stay in the loop.
To make sure you’re aware of the latest trends, we’ve decided to bring your attention to Pantone’s Colour Institute’s spring colour trend report. The report lists sixteen colours that are predicted to make an appearance this spring, and they range from some gorgeous vibrant and loud colours to a few calmer, more neutral tones. The colours are fun and exciting, and so perfectly spring, but there’s one in particular that stands out for us.
Pink Lavender takes our top pick for this season, and according to Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone, it is “a soft and romantic violet rose that charms with its soothing sense of quiescence.”
The soft shade is a gorgeous cross between the favourite millennial pink and a pale purple, giving you the ultimate spring colour. It’s bright and bold, yet subdued, so it won’t be an eyesore. We reckon we can see this colour not just down the runway and onto the dresses of your bridal party, but even in your centrepieces, invitations, table settings and desserts.
Some of our other top picks include Chilli Oil, “an earthy brown based red that adds flavourful definition to the spring 2018 palette,” and Sailor Blue, which leans towards a bold navy. These two colours work so well for the transition from winter to spring and have the type of hues that’ll see them carried through to the warmer days of this season.
Take a look through Pantone’s list, and let us know which colour you think will be taking the top place this spring.
