Pantone Colors for Spring / Summer 2019

Happy Friday friends!
Last Tuesday I told you about it being my 5th year of writing for the blog. Today’s topic was something I learned via blogging. I was not aware of the fact that there is a Fashion Institute, known as the Pantone Color Insititute, in New York, chooses colors each season that will infiltrate the designer’s world, and is shown during Fashion Week.  Those colors, then , will trickle down to the stores and those colors made popular by the team at the Institute will be available in clothing, and accessories choices you can make.

I wrote about last year, and the color of the year in 2018. ( have a read to see the color from last year 😉

This year, you made have heard that the color of the year, The Pantone Color Institute dubbed, “Living Coral”, the color of the year. Not only will you find this in clothing, but manufacturers use the color of the year, in household items, electronics, nail polish and more.

I always found coral a very universal color. It works well with every skin tone. Don’t you just think of the ocean, and marine life when you think of “living coral”? That train of thought just lends itself to me to think of ocean clear blue waters, my desire to snorkel, and the beautiful and the graceful and exquisite underwater fish and creatures one can envision in the sea.

Here is one crochet coral dress I wore a few years ago. I did get much wear from it!

and the neutrals. Many of these you may have in your closet, or care to mix and pair with the colors above.

I would love to use this as a reference, as you may wonder just what to do with these color palettes. Pin them and save as you may want to refer to them for color mixing. Trying new color combinations, and experimenting is one other avenue I have enjoyed exploring as a blogger.

Sweet Corn is demonstrated here with this neutral linen shirt dress I picked up from Zara last summer. I love neutrals and earthy tones in the summer, and they do seem to make a yearly appearance in the stores. Accessories play an important and fun role as they accent the look.

“Living coral” with its golden tones is complementary and bright for the Spring and Summer season with out being too bright it turns you off, like some neon shades.

Fiesta, an orange-red  looks great on certain skin tones and makes that impression of boldness and vibrancy. I prefer for my fairer skin to wear more red-blue shades, as the deeper tones work better on me. You can see an example of the “blue -red” as opposed to an orange-red or fiesta, that looks wonderful on another blogger, Emma, here.

This “Jester Red” below, is more attractive a red shade on me. With fair skin, I find that the blue-red shades work well, and are so vibrant!

I am more than happy that  Mango Mojito ( I like the sound of that!) or golden yellowis included in this color mix, as I love the mustard shades and warm tone of golden yellow. Not only that, it brightens your day to wear a color this cheerful! I am waiting on a vintage-looking midi dress from  Mango with gold and white floral design, as I got a jump start to spring.

I adore Tarrarium Moss, that deep, rich olive green that is so earthy and inviting. I love khaki and olive shades in the Spring/Summer and have a love affair with “Safari” type looks , so I am keeping my eye out for some pieces. Last year, paper bag waist pants were quick popular, and I love the look of this style, with an elegant cami or button down camp shirt. I can see some of these pants in this Moss shade, so do remind me if you see a pair!

Ive compiled some items with these 2019 Pantone Colors in mind. These are affiliate links for you to shop, at no cost to you. Enjoy!

Tell me, what shades are your favorite? What colors are you looking for this Spring/Summer? Seeing these colors, which might you combine to make for an interesting and bright look?
I love your comments, feel free to leave them and I’ll reply in the comments section. 

Have a great weekend!

    I have not been much of a bright color person in the past, but I am trying to incorporate some here and there. I really love the selection of the more neutrals.

    Clearly the mango color and living coral shade were made just for you. You do look so beautiful in the coral lace dress. I always find these list of fashionable colors to be interesting. It reminds me of the scene in the Devil wears Prada. Remember the line about cerulean blue?

    Have a wonderful week ahead my friend.

    I’m the boring girl who loves neutrals and have to push myself to wear more color! I’m so glad that crews, khakis and colors like that are going to be in!
