SPRING 2015: Color Palette

It might not be what you thought…marsalaMARSALA: Pantone named Marsala color of the year for 2015, and trend setters across the globe have wasted no time in putting this dusty tone to good use. In between a faded burgundy, and an orange toned mauve, this color is extremely easy and fun to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe. The range of Marsala can go from darker, more vibrant hues, to a light pastel. Seen in winter street style looks with wool coats, wide legged trousers, and flowing maxi skirts, Marsala is now making the transition into spring fashion. Lately, incorporated in silk fabrics, lace details, and satin dresses; this versatile color is definitely sticking around this year.

FADED SEAFOAM: The next color predominantly seen in 2015 street style has been a faded version of the popular spring color seafoam. Pastels are always a favorite in spring, and this year it’s no different, however there is a twist. These light pastel colors usually seen as light and bright, are getting a new filter. The hues will be duller, and more muted, but not to worry! This only makes them more versatile! While previously, a pastel pop of color could steal the show, this year they are not only more of a neutral and easy to wear, but you can try mixing more colors together in the same outfit. Another way to incorporate the dusty pastel trend, is to try making it a little more edgy. Though still soft and feminine, try pairing a bold pattern with a light pink or lavender. We love the street style example on the left, a seafoam colored coat with a fun black and white patterned skort.

 

INDIGO & POWDER PINK: This color combination was seen everywhere during NYFW and Paris Fashion week. The pink adds femininity while the indigo darkens and “roughens” up the outfit a bit. The pink has been seen in a lot of textures lately, anything from fuzzy sweaters (see below), to crocheted lace. The indigo seen in all fabrics, silhouettes and accessories, is especially inspired by a 90’s throwback-our love of denim. Different hues and fabric weights were added to break up head to toe indigo outfits, and there’s no denying it, we love it.
