Pantone Announces Top Colors For 2013 (Hint: It's All About The Blues--And Greens)

September 6, 2012 by Lauren Caruso

Move over, Tangerine Tango. You served us well this year, but it’s time for a new range of colors. Next season, we’ve got our collective eye on the other side of the color spectrum (or at least Pantone says so). The Color Institute today announced the new color spectrum for spring 2013 . The hues, Monaco Blue, Dusk Blue, Emerald and Grayed Jade, are aquatic and calming, and they conveniently look ahh-mazing alongside the camels, linens and eggshell whites of summer. Win-win! Get ready to see a LOT of this color.

“It speaks to the practicality that we are seeing in society,” Pantone’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, told WWD. “You have to realize there is still concern out there for the economy,” adding, “people want dependably stable colors.”

We agree, plus, these colors are worlds easier to work into your closet than Honeysuckle, the ultra-girly top color of 2011. To get a head start on rocking the shade ahead of the trend curve, work them into your wardrobe ever-so-subtly, like with a pair of ballet flats or on your fingertips. Kill two trends with one stone and invest in separates like an Emerald or Grayed Jade peplum top or a contrasting detachable collar. If you’re ready to go head-to-toe, just think how amazing an orange lip would pair with a flowy dress in Monaco Blue come spring!
