According to the fashion color gods at Pantone (still our dream job), Spring 2013 is all about feminine softness – fresh cool hues with pops of clear crisp brightness. Can you say refreshing? We know, fall hasn’t even started yet, but the fashion industry is all about what’s coming NEXT – so here’s your cheat sheet on what to expect when the snow melts this Spring.

Pantone’s Color Forecast for Spring 2013

Picture 2 of 10

Dusk Blue

A paler shade in the same tone as Monaco Blue, Dusk Blue is another terrific counterpoint to the brighter tones of the season (Dusk Blue and Lemon Zest? Yes please) – muted enough to play neutral or take center stage in the right garment. We love the idea of dusk blue as part of a pattern – think dusk blue florals, geometrics, on a white (or dare we say, linen?) background, it’s a fresh but classic Spring do.
