2013 Spring color trends

2013 Spring color trends:
Spring is in the air and time to talk about the Pantone spring color trends for 2013.
This spring the color trends are all about balancing the brights and pastel soft colors of spring.

This spring using 3 shades of green to really bring life into the season.  Green is a great color and I love the 3 different shades of green in the color trends since this is a green for everyone.

Below is a link to the entire Pantone 2013 color trend report.

Thought on the color trends for spring:

 I love the use of soft pastel colors this spring mixed with the bright colors.  My favorite color in the spring color trends is Linen.  I it s lovely simple neutral that works with any other color to soften up your spring look.  It is a fresh new color for spring and I just love it!

This spring I am building a home I designed and most of the colors I am using in my house are in the Spring 2013 color trends.  Most of the house is a warm grey with white and espresso brown wood.   The accent colors in the house are Poppy Red, Vibrant Orange, Emerald and Tender shoots.

Prominent Colors:
This spring in my fashion I have been really drawn to Emerald.  I love green and it balances my red hair, pale skin and green eyes.  It is a fun fresh color that can put anyone in a good mode.  We have had a long winter so I think that is also why I have been drawn toward green.   

Signature color:
My signature color is orange!  This spring I am love mixing Nectarine with Linen. They complement each other nicely.  I love a pop of orange and I love the men's color vibrant orange this spring as well.

Must have item:
My spring must have is a fun floral skirt and peplum top.  I love the way a peplum top creates amazing curves on every body type.  It is a must have this spring.

Below are the Spring 2013 color trends for men. They changed the orange to be a little brighter which I really like, changed the yellow to a more gold shade and added 2 grey naturals into the pallet.  It is a very fresh and strong look for spring.  

I really am enjoying the current fashion trends this spring.  There is something for everyone.
Spring fashion trends are:

  • Floral prints
  • Black & white geometric prints
  • Cut outs
  • Bright colors color blocked with the lighter pastel shade
  • Bond stripes
  • Leather
  • Embellishments with beads
  • Sporty
  • Flat or low heels

Let me know what your favorite color and fashion trend is for Spring 2013.

Most importantly is to have fun with fashion and try something new this spring!
