In conjunction with New York Fashion Week, the PANTONE Fashion Colour Report provides a comprehensive overview of fashion designers’ use of colour in their spring collections for 2017. Featuring the top 10 shades seen on the runway, the PANTONE Fashion Colour Report is your essential colour guide to the season.
Warm and cheerful, Primrose Yellow is the colour of sun-drenched sandy beaches and spring blooms scattered across green fields. Pair it with green and white and you will have the perfect colour combination for an outdoor country wedding, but in the summer you can also merge it with lavender purple, navy blue or mix it up into a palette of reds and oranges!
Pale Dogwood is your ultimate wedding colour if you are looking for a sophisticated shade of pink. It has more intensity than your usual blush pink, and yet it is very soft, romantic and ladylike. Bridesmaid dresses in this shade of pink are easy to find, so you can find a myriad of styles at bridesmaids stores, department stores, online and at bridal shops.
Earthy and warm, Hazelnut is a beautiful neutral shade which exudes warmth and complements any natural colour palette. It is a very light shade so it is perfect for spring, or summer and goes well with other warm neutrals, soft browns and metallic shades.
Island Paradise is a light shade of blue reminiscent of the shimmery surface that surrounds a tropical island. It is the perfect shade to include in your colour palette if you are planning a beach wedding on a remote and exotic destination or even a luxurious seaside destination in Australia.
Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017 is Greenery and it is inspired by the blossoming of nature in spring. It evokes the shades of rolling hills, foliage in your bridal bouquets and manicured grass lawns, so we can’t think of a more inspirational colour for a spring wedding.
Flame's vibrant combination of red and orange is definitely eye-catching and guarantees your bridesmaids will standout at the wedding! Pantone's Flame is hot and seductive and makes a fabulous addition to your summer wedding colour palette.
If you love powerful, vibrant colours, Pink Yarrow is great because it is a real attention grabber. This colour is perfect for accents, but you can also make it one of your primary shades because it is joyful, whimsical and pairs well with so many different colours ranging from whites and nudes to greens and blues.
Just like Island Paradise, denim-like Niagara blue is ideal for warm seaside destinations and makes a fabulous trendy alternative to the ever-so-popular navy bridesmaid dress hue. The shade is inspired by runway looks for spring 2017 so you can look for some ready-to-wear pieces as well.
And while Pantone’s Greenery is bright and vivacious, Kale reminds us of a woodlands and rainforests. If you are a nature lover, you will adore this subtle, dark colour which complements any neutral palette and makes a superb choice for any season and any rustic-style wedding venue.
Lapis Blue is strong and radiant, and it is featured in many bridesmaid dress collections for 2017. It creates a powerful contrast with white, and it is again one of the most appealing shades for a spring or summer wedding by the sea, in the country or even in the city. Lapis Blue is the new navy we are sure you will see more and more of!
