Color trend predictions to fashionistas remind me of sports fans pastime of predicting football’s best teams for the year – part speculative, part intuitive, part historical reference. We love to see if our own predictions and all-time favorites made the list. We find ways to incorporate the current year’s colors into our wardrobe.
Pantone’s 2015 color predictions promise many hues of blue, juxtaposed against powerful tangerine, sensual marsala, and subdued by toasted almond and custard. According to Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2015, the colors will be like a vivid, eclectic daydream, a throwback of sorts to a time when colors were vivid, yet whimsical – a la 1970s (I’m swooning!).
Your closet probably already has some or all of these colors represented. See if your wardrobe already has the 2015 spring colors. Save money by moving your color forward garbs to the front of your closet – ready at your fingertips (Tip: Change out your wardrobe 2-4 times a year to ensure you’re wearing your clothes and donating/selling what no longer is working. This allows you to fall in love with your clothes all over again, season to season. I swap out my clothes twice a year – fall/winter, spring/summer).
Color is an instant boost to an otherwise stale wardrobe. If you don’t have the colors in your current wardrobe and don’t want to spend a fortune on trendy items, opt for colorful accessories like scarves. Scarves can update an outfit in a cheap and chic way. The same with earrings, bracelets, and necklaces, which has a small storage and economical footprint and can spruce up any outfit.
