Pantone’s Color of Spring 2014

Dazzling Blue is Pantone’s color of Spring 2014. I am already envisioning this on beautiful spring pieces – shift dresses, blouses, cropped pants, the list could go on. I’m amazed at how every year Pantone manages to set the trend with the color they select for the year and how it has a great impact on the fashion industry and their collections.

Introducing, Dazzling Blue, a peppy shade of cobalt that Pantone’s executive director noted was a practical shade women were already likely to own

As Fashion Week is just around the corner, we will soon be seeing if Dazzling Blue makes its debut on the runway!

Tangerine Tango was such a winner this year appearing in the fashion world all summer long and even at some of this season’s weddings. Of course, its time had to come to an end though and now we  wait and watch for this new hue to run the world.
