Last week we spoke about a few Pantone Spring Colors for 2021, and today we are back for more! Are you ready?
I am really excited about these colors cause even knowing their on the Spring Palette, they are a very good fit for Fall as well, and you’ll notice why.
If Green Ash wasn’t for you, don’t worry I still have a couple of ace’s in my sleeve, and the first one is Pantone Mint, to refresh and restore your days, as Pantone ponctuated.
We saw in the last post that green has a calm effect on us, and also keep us close to nature. but if you think of mint, you can have that refresh sensation of something clean, sexy, excited and new. A perfect feel for a change of seasons.
How to style: Blazers, monochrome, bags, shoes, and if you can pull it off: color blocking!
I am honestly dying here, I saw this color on a pair of rubber boots and this is just the identity I want for 2021. Don’t know about you but when I see this color two things come to mind: a week in a cabin upstate New York in the beginning of October, and a day strolling around NYC, and don’t know which one I like the most, so I am definitely adding Willow to my wardrobe.
Pantone says: “A canopy of green that reveals and conceals.” Isn’t that beautiful?
How to style: with neutral tons, rubber boots, puff jackets, leather sets, gym outfits, and much more!
Okay, I am starting to feel like these color choices were picked by myself. If you follow me on any social media, you know beige outfits have been my obsession in the past couple of years. (there’re some Beige Outfits in this blog, scroll down)
Beige is a very timeless, sophisticate and clean color. Beige is also dependable, conservative, and flexible. The color beige is neutral, calm, and relaxing. The attributes and meanings associated with beige change based on the colors it accompanies.
How to style: You can really create a Hi-Lo style with this color. This means: Tailor Sets with gym tops, tee with heels, overcoat with sneakers, and more. For a more fancy outfit you can monochrome. Some great color combos for this are white, black and all the other ones in the Pantone Spring Color Choices.
My mantra for this year is F* Black and White, Why? Because why stick to the obvious when you have some other great basics such as these ones?!
Know that you get me, let’s move on to Buttercream. This color transiting between off-white and beige, and can easily be relate to clear sands in the Bahamas right? I think we can use this as a scape for a 2020.2.
According to Pantone, Buttercream is Clean, crisp and pristine Brilliant White is suggestive of simplicity and modernity. It brings you the happiness and lightness of waking up by the beach. Is very calm, spontaneous and it can be kind of fun.
How to style: lounge wear, tailor pants, tank tops and draws string dresses.
We are going to finish this post with the color of the year. Pantone declared two colors of the year in 2021: Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Grey.
Quietly assuring and reliable gray encouraging composure is Pantone’s definition for it’s color. But in color psychology, grey represents neutrality and balance. Is a great color for those who want to look mature, unpretentious and independent.
For those reasons I would suggest wearing this color in denim pants, oversized blazers, Oversize tees, lounge sets. And then add some color points in bags, shoes and accessories. A little tip: yellow goes great with this one hahah
Hope to see you on part III
