Pantone is known by many for their annual color of the year announcement as well as their ability to accurately communicate color across all aspects of design. While many probably know about the color of the year, “Greenery”, what some may not know is that they also come out with a color report every spring and fall. The spring report has been out since last September and includes colors that are bright and vivid as well as some that convey a sense of earthiness. However, all are reminiscent of hues that surround us in nature in an attempt to create a mixture of vitality, relaxation, and the great outdoors. While this may not be new to some of you, here are some ideas of how to incorporate these vibrant colors into your summer style.
