2016 Spring Pantone Colours

By Aylin Bilgin, Jan 27


While the calendar is telling us winter is here for a few months yet, our retailers are already stocking their shelves with spring merchandise. So to ensure you’re ahead of the trends when it comes time to do your spring closet edit, we’ve summarized this year’s top trending hues according to the professionals at the Pantone Colour Institute, and sourced out some easy pieces to incorporate into your existing wardrobe.

 

 

 

 

1.  Rose Quartz: Reminicent of fresh spring blossoms, rose quartz is essential for spring and easy to pair with soft pastels and earth tones.

How to Wear It:  Dress up a rose quartz t-shirt like this one with a basic blazer, or dress it down for a lunch date with a pair of blue boyfriend jeans and a bold statement necklace.

2. Peach Echo: Fruity and punchy this hue will add a pop of spring colour to your look.

How to Wear It: We’re seeing this colour everywhere, but love it most in some of our work-out clothes, like these leggings. Try pairing them with a white tank top the next time you attend the CORE’s free fitness Sunday.

Lolë Salutation Leggings, $90

 

 

 

3. Serenity: True to it’s name, Serenity is a cool and calming hue that blends well in an otherwise busy roster of spring colours.

How to Wear It: We're big fans of this flirty asymmetrical dress, which would look adorable with a pair of sunshine yellow pumps.

4. Snorkel Blue: Inspired by the deep ocean, Snorkel Blue is a clean, crisp tone that we’re seeing paired with nautical reds and whites.

How to Wear It: Pair this dress with a white blazer or cardigan and a bright red clutch to create a bold statement look.  

Judith & Charles, Deanna Dress, $385

 

   

 

 

5. Buttercup: In the same way a bouquet of buttercups will brighten up your day, a pop of this colour will brighten up your look.

How to Wear It: Try a simple v-neck with your favourite pair of dark blue jeans for a fun casual Friday at the office.

6. Limpet Shell: This tone reminds us of a perfect day by the clear Caribbean sea.

How to Wear It: For a quick and easy way to add this colour to your spring style, pick up a bottle of nail polish for a little spring mani/pedi to get your toes sandal ready.

7. Lilac Gray: Warmed up for spring, this gray is sweet and light with a subtle lilac undertone. It gives a new edge to an otherwise colder basic gray.

How to Wear It: This neutral scarf can be worn with an array of colours to compliment your outfit. We love it best with a light denim jacket and a rose quartz top.

Roots Halla Infinity Scarf, $38

 

 

 

8. Fiesta: Just as the name sounds, this vibrant red is ideal for your first spring party.  

How to Wear It: We found this beautiful lace skirt that can be worn on your next night out. Pair with a white crop top for a trendy for a trendy finish.

9. Iced Coffee: This neutral is as refreshing for your closet as it sounds. The tone can be worn with a multitude of colours, as it pairs well with almost anything.

How to Wear It: This suede accordion purse is a must-have accessory for the season. It’s big enough to keep all your essentials, yet small enough to wear as a cross-body bag without weighing you down.

Banana Republic Brown Italian Suede Acordian Bag, $240

 

 

 

 

10. Green Flash: Green is a must in every spring collection. This lustrous colour is the first sign of spring that we see in nature, and in fashion.

How to Wear It: These sophisticated green flash sunglasses will serve you well right into summer. They are unique enough to make a statement, yet subtle enough to be an everyday accessory during the upcoming warmer months.

Club Monaco Selima Marilyn Sunglasses, $145
