Imagine yourself on an exotic vacation this spring and dress yourself accordingly.
Designers are creating “an interesting marriage of unexpected warm and cool
tones,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

With the combination of complementary colors as well as opposites on the color wheel, this season’s palette will have a striking intensity. Feel pretty in flirty Honeysuckle and give yourself an instant pick-me-up in Coral Rose and Beeswax. Pair with Regatta and add zest to your current wardrobe. Lavender is sensuous on its own, and is memorable when paired with Beeswax or Coral Rose.

Take your wardrobe to a tropical vacation by incorporating tranquil Blue Curacao and pair it with warm Honeysuckle or Coral Rose or even Peapod, and pay homage to the new year and new beginnings spring brings with it. Looking for a neutral? Steer toward transseasonal nudes like Silver Peony, Russet and
Silver Cloud that will coordinate with almost everything in your closet. Above all, have fun, experiment and enjoy the season!
