Spring 2013 color report from Pantone has arrived

Pantone released the spring/summer 2013 color report today and it has given Fashionistas everywhere a sneak peek into the ten hottest hues for the upcoming spring 2013 season.

The fresh color palette is slightly softer than it was for spring 2012 and it appears that any shade of blue will be hot for 2013. After all, earlier this year Pantone declared that blue would be the new black for 2013; according to this chart, it will be!

Since Pantone’s predictions are based on New York designer preferences, it does appear that the soft pastels from Paris in 2012 have traveled to our side of the globe and mixed in with our bright hues from 2012. The softer colors are still cheery and bright; just not as neon as originally forecasted.

What do you think of the spring 2013 color palette? Do you have a favorite hue?
