Seasonal Trend: Pantone Colors for Spring 2017

Think natural, not neutral – mostly.  This year’s spring hues remind me that it’s time start thinking about the garden.  The 2017 color of the year, Greenery, is in good company with shades of blue (Island Paradise, Niagra and Lapis Blue), pink (Pale Dogwood, Pink Yarrow), yellow (Primrose Yellow) and orange (Flame).  These are not the Easter basket pastels we’ve come to expect from spring.  Pantone rounds out the lineup of the season with one neutral – Hazelnut.  Pop these brilliant colors with white, pale grey or silver for a fresh spring look.

Little Black Dresses

If you’ve already got one, you might need two. So versatile, the little black dress is a classic, something that goes from day to night with a change of accessories. Shown here:

  • Sleeveless bateau neck dress and short sleeved v-neck dress.  Both are made of organic cotton and hemp.
  • Go sporty with a white silk sweater (also by EILEEN FISHER) or dress it up with a long scarf (white cashmere and silk scarf by Blue Pacific).

Easy Summer Dresses

A dress is just the thing when the weather warms up (ahem…and dries out…). A dress is an outfit by itself, just add some great shoes and accessories. Shown here:

  • Bateau neck sleeveless dress in Papyrus, made of organic cotton and hemp twist, a good sustainable option, and easy to wash
  • Hand dyed scarf by Bryan Emerson
