Although we are still pining away for cooler temperatures so we can all wear our new fall clothing, the runways in New York are giving us the latest and greatest fashion for the spring 2019 season. Every season, color authority Pantone shows us the top colors designers ordered for dying the fabric they used in their newest collections.
Drum roll please. . . these are the hot new colors for spring 2019! Courtesy of Pantone! You can read the official report here.
The fall 2018 season has turned into a darker season then we expected. While designers showed vivid colors on their runways for fall and winter, store buyers opted for darker hues and filled shelves with an almost depressing array of color. Designers turned their nose up at this and are still showing brighter hues for the upcoming spring 2019 season. I love all the vivid colors in this report! Hopefully store buyers will get the hint and liven up store shelves next season with these beautiful hues!
My favorite colors from the spring 2019 color palette are “Princess Blue,” “Pink Peacock,” and “Sweet Lilac.” I feel like Sweet Lilac is the new Millennial Pink. Please raise your hand if you are sick of blush aka Millennial Pink?! My hand is waaaay up! I’m excited for more saturated versions of pink in the spring season!
Top neutral colors for spring 2019
Thank goodness there isn’t any black in this neutral color palette! While black is still walking down the spring runways in full force, it isn’t dominating the color palette like it ended up doing for fall. This spring, we can enjoy light neutrals such as “Soybean” and rich neutrals such as “Brown Granite.” I’m loving the earthy feel of those two colors and would love seeing them paired with the four fire hues shown above in the top 12 color report. Actually, I love brown with bright blue or pink too. It has a very early 1990s vibe which is still very relevant right now.
What do you think of the spring 2019 color report? Do you love or hate any of the colors? Which are your favorites?
Thanks for stopping by!
